Smart City Uppsala
Tell Me More


Our GreenIoT project has received 10Msek from Vinnova, together with another 10Msek co-funding from Uppsala Kommun and industrial partners. The second phase of the project will start on September 2015. We will turn Uppsala into a smart city in the coming two years (more).

An Energy-Efficient Internet-of-Things Platform for Open Data and Sustainable Developmemnt.

To develop an energy-efficient Green IoT platform that enables green and sustainable growth of society targeting for improved environment and economical growth.

To investigate Interent-of-Things, cloud computing, and green networking technology to support open data for the benefits of reduced energy consumption, air pollution and traffic congestion in major cities of Sweden.

To engage companies and general public for IoT innovations, develop products and services based on the open data and explore opportunities for IoT business worldwide.



Emissions from motor vehicles have become a major source of air pollution in world's large and medium sized cities. Many large cities experience serious air pollution (e.g., carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons and particles) and greenhouse gas emission (GHG), which are made worse by increasing traffic congestion. Our overall goal is to investigate an innovative energy-efficient and information-centric infrastructure for Internet-of-Things (IoT), which connects heterogeneous wireless sensing and mobile devices to collect environmental data and integrates them for sustainable urban and transportation planning. Decisions can be made based on the sensing data for redirecting traffic to relieve traffic congestion and thus reduce air pollution. Our Green IoT platform provides a systematic solution that enables green and sustainable growth of the society. It supports innovations and applications for addressing societal challenges, such as smart transport, sustainable city, and efficient energy, in the Digital Agenda and EU Horizon 2020.
