We’re excited to announce that we have secured a place on the European IoT Large-Scale Pilot project ‘SynchroniCity’. This win follows a highly competitive application process consisting of more than 130 applications from across Europe. During the project See.Sense will partner with BT to carry out three projects in Dublin, Manchester and Antwerp.
These projects will deliver new insights into the use of city transport infrastructure that can be used to encourage modal shift towards cycling. Using crowdsourced sensor data collected by the patented See.Sense IoT-enabled bike lights and accompanying app, aggregated insights will be shared with the cities which will enable never-before-seen insights into the experience and safety of cyclists in the city. In addition, we will also be working with Cycling Industries Europe to create data standards for cycling.
The SynchroniCity project aims to break down key barriers to a global IoT market serving local needs by using a common technical ground based on best practice and emerging standards. Projects were selected by looking at their economic viability alongside their capacity to scale their business based on the standards-based and city-centric approach of SynchroniCity. Above all, the successful applicants demonstrated empowerment of both cities and communities, demonstrating the sustainable uptake of IoT and AI-based solutions to provide better, more efficient and cost-effective services.
Watch this space as we will be updating this blog as the project progresses.

SynchroniCity is driven by a simple question: What would it take for a great data-driven solution in City “A” to readily work in City “B”? Starting in February, 18 cities and 40 companies will join the movement to redefine the social and economic potential of new services using Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Europe and beyond by giving a real answer to that question.
