Pozuelo de Alarcón wanted to transform itself into a smart city. This was especially so due to demands from residents that the different administrations of the city make an effort to become more clean, efficient and optimize the use of city resources. The goals of this initiative was to decrease energy use, reduce CO2 emissions, detect and correct any excesses in water consumption and keep expenses in check.
Carriots City Life is an IoT plataform that works like the city brain: collecting data through different sensors or information reported by the citizens and mixing it all to better manage the municipal services. It's a cloud platform that allows collection, integration, storage and analysis of all the city data with a global vision. The Pozuelo de Alarcón Platform runs with the services of our partner Orange España, as the connectivity provider. 4 projects were integrated into in the Carriots platform: • Smart Irrigation in 11 public parks and gardens, a network of humidity sensors make the irrigation system more efficient and saves water consumption. • Smart Parking in 970 parking spaces with information about free spaces through a mobile app. • Smart Street Lightings, the intensity of light can be adjusted to weather conditions or the presence of citizens by integrating other data sources and sensors within Carriots. • Energy Efficiency in the Council with more than 150 points collecting data an providing recommendation to facility managers.
