In Europe, special attention is given to how to use modern technology to make life better in urban areas. The use of monitoring stations to monitor air pollution is very expensive. That is why their number is quite limited. In distributed networks, in which different devices can be used as sensors, costs are significantly reduced, which allows the station to the large number of places, including secondary roads or school grounds. This will allow the city authorities to better manage urban traffic control and air quality.
Our urban infrastructure controls itself. We get a large amount of data that quantitatively measure our work in the city. We have also begun to establish public data banks, which are small and medium-sized businesses can use to offer new services. However, we are experiencing a shortage of certain types of data. We are trying to find ways to motivate building owners more actively exchange information available to them to ensure that the benefits could be obtained as local companies, as well as the community at large.
