Smart Urban Services
Smart Urban Spaces is a European effort to develop compatible urban services that are easy to use, making use of mobile technology and ubiquitous IT. The focus is on context-based services and local services usable through mobile devices.
Nine cities in France, Spain, Greece and Finland are involved in the project.
The aim is to ensure compatibility between European ICT systems while increasing the cost-effectiveness of city services and making everyday life easier for citizens. Transport, tourism, event and training services and their compatibility are being tested in the participating cities.
In Finland, the project is coordinated by VTT, which is also conducting research in the field.
