Mobility, 3D maps, data analysis and real time alerts

The present edition of SmartCatalonia Challenge seeks to optimize the management in a diversity of situations inside the harbor thanks to mobile applications, Big Data, IoT and other advanced technologies. Challenges have been detected in the following areas:

  • Real time occupancy monitoring
  • Mobility in cruises and ferries
  • Usage and applications of the Port’s 3D map
  • Aquatic drone for bathymetry and state of docks and piers
  • Automatic measure of volume and weight
  • Network of sensors to check marine pollution

The deadline to present proposals for the competition is June 7th. Once received, a jury of specialist will pre-select the 10 best solutions or technological products.

The winners will have the opportunity to receive prizes worth 10.000 € and to carry out pilot tests at the Port de Barcelona.
