To morph Ypsonas into smart city, an open data platform will be set up through the employment of low-cost microcontroller boards equipped with sensors. Thanks to such infrastructure, will be possible to collect data and information for designing advanced services for citizens.

Let's not reinvent the wheel. If we focus on some immediate process changes, using existing technology, which means there's no high maintenance costs long term; we can achieve a lot in a short time, with huge cost-effectiveness. Plus, by using off-the-shelf services, it reduces the risk of long term reliance on one bespoke software system.
