SCENT

SCENT is a H2020 funded innovation project that will engage citizens in environmental monitoring and enable them to become the eyes of the authorities and policy makers. In doing so citizens will support the monitoring of land-cover/use changes using their smartphones.

U-Hopper is tasked with the design and implementation of the crowdsourcing platform that enable people-generated web of observation to augment the costly in-situ infrastructure traditionally deployed. The crowdsourcing platform is based on CIVICFLOW product properly extended to handle images and to facilitate two-way interactions.

FogGuru

Fog computing is emerging as a new paradigm for powering novel applications and services through the provisioning of a distributed computing infrastructure able to process data closer to users. Major leaders in the ICT sector (like Cisco, Huawei, IBM etc.) are heavily investing into this innovation line, which is expected to have a major impact on several application domains, in much the same way the cloud is impacting them now.

FogGuru is funded by the European Commission under the H2020 MSCA programme, and it will deliver an industrial doctoral programme specifically focussed on fog computing. U-Hopper in particular will train two PhD students on the design and engineering of scalable data pipelines for fog computing infrastructures and fog-enabled interactive services for smart city.
