ITEA Smart City Advisory Board

To create a dialogue between cities and Smart Cities technology developers, ITEA has established the Smart City Advisory Board.

This Advisory Board will serve municipalities to share immediate needs to experts of technologies in the ITEA Community, be informed on a regular basis on the innovation and digital technology trends that can impact their city, validate and shape any potential products, offering added value for Smart City applications, that are being developed in an ITEA project, access the newest products that are developed in ITEA projects, discuss issues with peers from other cities and be the pioneer of change in their cities by using an open community compatible with the public procurement laws.

This Advisory Board will serve the ITEA Community to understand the urgent needs of municipalities, validate their potential products that are developed in ITEA projects and their features at an early stage and exploit their products to municipalities at the end of an ITEA project in the context of usual public procurement rules.

The aim of the SCAB portal is to bring the Smart city challenges and innovative Smart City solutions of the SCAB members and the ITEA Community together in one place.

If you wish to promote your Smart City products / services that (partly) result from an ITEA project on this portal, please fill in the following form and send it to
Citizen Dialog Kit
Citizen Dialog Kit is a platform of interactive survey devices and an online management platform. It is designed to include more and different people in the decision-making process. It works independent of existing power or network infrastructure. Easy to install right where it matters.
Through successful participation in over more than 10 projects, we demonstrated that our evidence-based methodology makes a difference in a wide range of project: from urban planning, to mobility, tourism and placemaking.
Cyclomedia Mobility pack
Data is the foundation of a smart city. The Mobility pack provides you with the data that provides insight on the status quo in your city. How many traffic signs, road markings, traffic lights, street lights, parking lots, cycle lanes and e-charging stations do you have? What condition are they in? And where exactly are they located? Essential information for a pro-active approach to improve a city infrastructure and to adapt to new ways of transportation.
IoT-Ignite Platform
It's a multi-layered platform technology that serves big data, analytics, machine learning and AI. It is highly scalable for large and wide deployments to provide connectivity management, device and service provisioning, device management, control, service automation, end edge computing with real-time visibility and optimisation tools.
Nommon Population Insights
Nommon Population Insights provides indicators on the distribution of people in a given area and its evolution over time, including visitor profiling (e.g., age, gender, income, home location) and visit type (e.g. visit purpose, frequency, length of stay). The solution exploits anonymised mobile network data, which offers detailed information about the activity patterns of large-scale, well-distributed samples of the whole population, without the need to deploy expensive sensorisation solutions.
Participation Pavilion
The participation pavilion bridges the gap between online and offline urban participation. It is placed at strategic locations throughout a municipality, informing citizens about new urban development plans or policy issues the city wants to bring forward. To give feedback on the issues or proposals presented, citizens are invited to pick up the phone and answer a set of questions. All replies are recorded and digitally processed for anonymous pattern analysis supported by linguistic algorithms.
Smart City Platform
Smart City Platform including a web app for city authorities making decisions on the urban mobility planning, which provides seven-day predictions about pollution and traffic status based on municipal open data and simulation of pollution scenarios and an android mobile application for citizens which provides real-time recommendations about pollution and mobility and traffic accident risk prediction based on deep learning techniques..
