Security and emergency

Monitoring of activity in public spaces to enhance citizen safety and improve emergency response

IoT sensors, located in buildings and streets as well as in wearables, enable real-time monitoring and alerts.

Internet of Things (IoT) technology can be used in a variety of ways to improve security and emergency management, such as video surveillance services, light poles with "panic button" or geolocation of emergency vehicles. Thanks to the data collected in real time, it is possible to optimize the response of the agents involved in risk situations affecting citizens.

Practical applications for this type of services

Devices and technologies for the following applications of this family of services will be validated in the laboratory.


The IoT technology can be used in a wide range of smart city services to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of municipal public services.
