Barcelona City is going to install several kinds of sensors from Sentilo partners in its emblematic Passeig de Gràcia. Sound sensors by Cesva, garbage-bin sensors by TST Sistemas (that even detect if bin covers stay open), traffic sensors by Sensefields and water quality sensors by Libellium will send data to the same platform, thanks to Sentilo’s common API. The project will demonstrate Sentilo’s capability to ensure that the disastrous silo paradigm for smart cities technology is avoided.
So Sentilo is going to contribute to Barcelona’s Passeig de Gràcia becoming one of the “smartest” avenues in the world. We’ll even be able to know the pH of the water of its ornamental fountains!
