SmartSantander One of the main objectives of the project is to fuel the use of the Experimentation Facility among the scientific community, end users and service providers in order to reduce the technical and societal barriers that prevent the IoT concept to become an everyday reality. To attract the widest interest and demonstrate the usefulness of the SmartSantander platform, a key aspect that will be addressed is the inclusion of a wide set of applications. Application areas will be selected based on their high potential impact on the citizens as well as to exhibit the diversity, dynamics and scale that are essential in advanced protocol solutions, and will be able to be evaluated through the platform.

Une trousse à couture (photographerpandora/Flickr/CC).
