Barcelona Case Study
Barcelona’s heavy traffic and its associated high levels of pollution were the primary factors that motivated some companies and universities to work on strategies for improving traffic in the city centre. Bitcarrier is one of the technologies involved in the In4Mo Project, whose main objective is to develop the applications that form the core of smart mobility, one of the fundamental pillars of the smart city concept.

Smart City OperationsSmart city operations include the range of solutions required to enable smart city concepts by integrating Information and Communication Technology with senors and connected devices to optimize the efficiency of city operations and services. Smart city technology allows city officials to interact with both community members and city infrastructure and to monitor situation in the city in real time. Benefits for city managers include Tracking events in the city in real time, managing congestion, improving operational efficiency, reducing emergency response times, and enabling remote management. Modern solutions will aim to integrate all city data into a single dashboard. Both historical and current KPIs are measured to conduct performance reviews and gap analysis, and to plan future infrastucture and service investments.
Bitcarrier is a real-time intelligent traffic management and information solution for urban environments. It is specifically designed to satisfy the needs of local authorities to optimize traffic. The Bitcarrier solution was implemented in the city of Barcelona in order to track routes and vehicles. The data audited by its urban sensors was integrated with the data from other existing technologies and, in this way, a reliable and accurate system was created for enriched, value-added data analysis.
