City Nervous System - The Urbsense vision by Ubiwhere


Wednesday, 30 June: 16:45 - 17:45 CET


My MWC Online, Hall Virtual



Session Description

Ubiwhere presents the City Nervous System, an innovative concept that envisions cities as living organisms, able to generate information and act on it directly and autonomously, almost organically. The activation of the City Nervous System takes advantage of the development of the 5G network and the technologies for its deployment, such as edge computing and neutral hosting, combining everything in a single platform and accelerating the generation of intelligence in cities.
City Nervous System is the result of the URBSENSE project, developed by Ubiwhere and co-funded by Compete 2020, Portugal 2020 and FEDER.
