Solutions

Our solutions are based on an Open Urban Platform
for numerous innovative services.

Based on [ui!] UrbanPulse, sensor and other real-time data from different data sources are collected and processed,
analysed and visualised as the "pulse of the city" in all relevant areas as data-based value-added services.

[ui!] UrbanPulse as BASIC PLATFORM & VISUALIZATION OF URBAN DATA

[ui!] UrbanPulse as a base

With [ui!] UrbanPulse, a real-time sensor data platform has been developed that follows the vision of an Open Urban Platform as expressed by the European Innovation Partnership Smart Cities and Communities (EIP) and specified in DIN SPEC 91357.

[ui!] UrbanPulse is based on a highly scalable architecture for data processing and analysis, with a special connector framework for easy integration of sensors and other urban management systems.

On the basis of open interfaces, the platform offers integrated access to urban data from different urban areas.

Municipal administrations, companies and citizens can use the data collected and refined with [ui!] UrbanPulse to optimize their individual decisions and improve their digitized services and processes. Municipal administrations, companies and citizens can use the data collected and refined with [ui!] UrbanPulse to optimize their individual decisions and improve their digitized services and processes.

Visualization of Urban Data with [ui!] COCKPIT

Visulalization of information is the basis for added value of a city.

A digital city is a very complex issue and affects several areas at once. Here the possibility to visualize an overall picture is often missing.

[ui!] supports the possibility of identifying the real potential of a Smart City in an urban overview and communicating it to the citizens. 

Various [ui!] COCKPITS with different and individually compiled urban data are available.

Here is an example: https://badhersfeld.urbanpulse.de/

[ui!] Festival COCKPIT

With the [ui!] Festival COCKPIT, which was especially developed for large events, important data such as traffic volume and speed, weather data, parking lot occupancy, visitors, temperature and environmental data, towing operations and much more can be displayed in real time at a control center.

Therefore, the responsible people have an up-to-date overview at any time and can intervene if necessary.

SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY & TRAFFIC OPTIMIZATION

[ui!] M2DATA

Traffic analyze

[ui!] M2SHARE

The cross-fleet use with the help of intelligent ICT-supported organisation enables the ideal utilisation of e-vehicles in public and commercial fleets.

We can ensure optimum capacity utilisation and thus lower operating costs by sharing the vehicles. Thus, e-vehicles can already be operated today at full costs comparable to those of conventional vehicles.

[ui!] M2CHARGE

Development of a nationwide, intermodal travel option - to be able to travel with a ticket and a one-time payment process. The various regional and supra-regional mobility providers, such as rental bikes, rental scooters, car-sharing, local transport and even trains or planes, are taken into account.

[ui!] M2MAAS
The [ui!] TRAFFIC APP shows the current traffic situation by means of information provided on the basis of data from an urban traffic control computer. Thus real data is displayed in real time for the user. Here is an example from Darmstadt:
[ui!] M2CARE
Digital support for the implementation of an accompanying service in public transport.
[ui!] ECOMAT

The [ui!] ECOMAT app is a so-called "traffic light phase assistant" that supports drivers while driving through a city. For this purpose, the smartphone is mounted visibly on the dashboard or on the windshield so that it can be viewed without effort while driving. Operation while driving is not necessary and not permitted.

The user of the [ui!] ECOMAT app is provided with speed recommendations while driving. Speed recommendations are displayed to promote the most economical and relaxed driving possible in front of traffic lights (in technical terms, "traffic signals"). Depending on the vehicle's current position, speed and expected path, driving recommendations are calculated and output via the app. For this purpose, the app uses predicted green times of the signal systems. Therefore, the [ui!] ECOMAT app is linked to the [ui!] TRAFFIC data platform, which receives and evaluates data from a city's traffic management system.

In order not to distract the driver while driving, the visualization of the information and recommendations is limited to the most important limited. The driver is responsible for safe driving that is adapted to the environment. driving is the driver himself. Interaction with the cell phone is not necessary while driving and should be avoided. In return great care is taken in the design and function of the [ui!] that the information provided is correct and consistent and that it is displayed and is displayed without distractions.

Depending on the agreement with a city, the [ui!] ECOMAT service can be used for specific routes or an entire city network. Simulations carried out so far in various research projects (e.g. in UR:BAN) show that, with a sufficiently large number of liquefying effects on the traffic flow in a city can be achieved. in a city can be achieved. In conjunction with appropriate public relations public relations work - new options for action in traffic management. management to improve traffic quality and help reduce pollution. and contribute to reducing pollution.

The latest version of [ui!] ECOMAT supports Android-based smartphones. smartphones. Important requirements for suitable smartphones are (as of March 2020):

  • Android operating system version 6.0 or higher
  • Working memory 2GB or more
  • GPS module

Based on previous experience, suitable manufacturers are e.g. Samsung, LG or HTC.

ENERGY MANAGEMENT FOR QUARTERS

Smart City Project Sinfonia

Together with international partners, innovative energy solutions are being developed which serve as a model for the European cities of tomorrow.

Sinfonia is the acronym for "Smart INitiative of cities Fully cOmmitted do iNvest In Advanced large-scaled energy solutions."

The focus is on the energetic renovation of buildings, the expansion of the district heating network, and the increased use of regional and renewable energy sources.

The project is directly aimed at the scalability and transferability of the solutions implemented in pilot districts. At the core is the demonstration of technical measures and a great proximity to applications.

With the [ui!] COCKPIT, residents have access to all the digital information available about their apartment. The graphical visualization helps you to understand what is going on in your apartment. A concrete example are parameters, such as room temperature and humidity, which provide an indication for the prevention of mould. Residents can thus react to these indicators at an early stage and not only when mould is already visible.

Smart Home

Open Urban Platform = Open3

Open Source, Open API & Open Platform Standard.

The open standard of the Open Urban Data Platform supports numerous suppliers of sensor manufacturers of different kinds to collect their data centrally on one platform - to process them and then make them available for further use. The connectors required here can be created by customers themselves free of charge or provided for a small fee by [ui!].

Open Standard = Open Source = Free of charge?
Although there are free open source solutions, which have to be adapted by IT experts at great expense of time.
These costs should not be neglected.
Can our city afford this?
By charging for market valuable permitted dataBy charging for market valuable permitted datato third parties investment in an open urbandata platform such as [ui!] UrbanPulse canbe covered in a short time.

Solutions

How does the [ui!] UrbanPulse work?
The [ui!] UrbanPulse data platform uses existing sensor data, for example from traffic lights, intelligent lighting, parking systems and much more. The data is collected, processed, analysed and prepared for further use by means of connectors. This can be a visualisation by means of [ui!] COCKPIT for the transparency of urban data use towards the citizens as well as, for example, as an annotated road map with traffic information via a web server. In real time - twice as fast as conventional solutions and without a complicated integration process.
What about data security?
Only non-personalized data is collected in the [ui!] UrbanPulse and securely stored on European servers.
