Essential city services are: The utilities, including water, energy, mobility and waste removal, as well as the environment.
OUTSMART contributes to the sustainability of city resources by establishing a Future Internet enabled ecosystem for cities, and supporting the creation of innovative services with value to the European economy and citizens.
OUTSMART addresses five essential Smart City services: Water and Sewage, Street Lighting, Waste Management, Water and Environment and Sustainable Urban Transport. OUTSMART has chosen to centre the envisioned pilots in the context of five key European cities and urban areas referred to as clusters.
The five clusters are:
Each of the clusters addresses a specific topic of the usage area and has been strategically chosen by the consortium to have a strong end user focus, including utilities and public organisations, lead by a strong local ICT organisation.
The combination of the five clusters provides a consistent input to the establishment of generic and domain specific requirements for the Future Internet, focusing on services and turnkey solutions provided by the Future Internet.
