Currently the information on the state of traffic and mobility in cities and their relation with environmental factors such as noise or air quality is poor and insufficient.
Technology has evolved and allowed the interconnection between objects, the Internet of Things allowing us to be connected to many devices including vehicles.
This novel technology also allows to drive efficiently and responsibly, helping to reduce accidents, lower emissions and make substantial savings in fuel costs.
LabCityCar is based on this, a Living Lab type project where the citizen plays a fundamental role as a citizen researcher, opening a new channel of cooperation between the general public and local governments for the improvement of the quality of life.
It all began with a very simple yet innovative idea, which consisted in selecting a representative number of citizens who use their vehicle frequently. We installed a sensor to each of these vehicles that allows communication between the vehicle and the driver's mobile phone, in which is installed an application that helps to drive more efficiently and safely.
