During the week of September 10, 2018, the Smart City Expo Latam took place in the Exhibitor Center of the historical city of Puebla, México. With over 12,000 visitors and around 44 countries represented (especially from Latin America), it was an excellent venue for Martel to present results of our ongoing Smart Cities projects. We also got to engage in exciting conversations about Smart Cities and tech with different actors, understanding the real needs and challenges for citizens and governments in the coming years.
At the FIWARE EU-MEXICO workshop, Martel’s Tomas Aliaga presented the results of the SmartSDK project. SmartSDK is a collaboration between 10 SMEs and research institutions from México and Europe for the development of software applications in the context of Smart Healthcare, Smart Mobility and Smart Securities using FIWARE technologies.
Martel also presented Orchestra Cities, the open platform for Smart Cities services. Martel is developing Orchestra Cities with Ubiwhere and Therapeanis using FIWARE and several other state-of-the-art Open Source technologies. You can find more information at http://orchestracities.com/.
“Overall, the Smart City Expo was a big success. It demonstrated that the needs and challenges for the future of smart cities have been clearly identified. For example, we have seen a plethora of software solutions tacking different needs of the cities, but the question remains: how many of these are truly open and based on open standards? With so many options to choose from, decision-makers are now seeking solutions that are open, secure and interoperable,” said Aliaga.
At Martel Innovate, we welcome the drive towards standard and open solutions. If you would like to find out more about our products and FIWARE offerings, don’t hesitate to contact us.
