5MART: 5G-ready Management of All Regional Tasks

Prototype Smart City infrastructure and an Open Data City Platform

The digitalization of many economic and social processes creates an opportunity for cities to improve the quality of living for its inhabitants. Examples of topics to be focused on are sustainability, social activities and ecological activities. The Smart City concept – and Open Data City as its extension – is expected to become the standard in the digitalization sector.

The base for this development is the connection of different areas in a Smart City context with wide area network technologies like Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) and 5G. Furthermore, the development of a platform to connect the different elements is of high interest.

The goal of the project 5MART is to investigate the combination of different communication techniques (5G, LoRaWAN) and different approaches for Open Data City Platforms with Internet of Things (IoT) concepts. This project is a cooperation of the industry partner Infosim® and the university of Würzburg. One main work item is a prototype Smart City infrastructure and an Open Data City Platform within the city of Würzburg.

The main task of Infosim® in the project is the configuration and monitoring of the network devices, an open data platform, and the integration of the various components of the project.
