Holistic Surface Water and Groundwater Management for Sustainable Cities.

View website

Water4Cities deals with urban water management, which becomes progressively more challenging in the view of population growth and increasing complexity of water management infrastructure.

The Water4Cities project will rely on sensor technologies, data and visual analytics to enable localization, visualization and analysis of urban water (both surface water and groundwater) at a holistic urban setting providing services to multiple water stakeholders. It aims to develop the necessary models and associated platform that will enable water providers and relevant stakeholders to a) monitor in real-time the urban water resources; b) support their decisions for optimal urban water management causing minimal environmental impact and c) involve policy makers, corporations and the public to provide the support for sound and balanced decision-making. Beyond the scientific results, Water4Cities will target the exchange of knowledge among project partners. The project will be demonstrated in two case studies, one in the island of Skiathos, Greece and one in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Iquadrat Informatica will contribute its IoT platform for monitoring water related parameters, and will be involved in data collection, cleaning and visualization. We are also responsible for the implementation of energy-efficient network communication protocols and testing them in real-world conditions as part of the project pilot scenarios. Project partners are the following: Institut Jozef Stefan (Slovenia), Ljubljanski Urbanisticni Zavod, d.d. (Slovenia), Iquadrat Informatica SL (Spain), Bangor University (UK), Water Supply and Sewerage Enterprise of Skiathos (Greece), and the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center (USA).
