  • A crowd-enabled scenario for efficient smart energy management

    In order to demonstrate the capabilities offered by the IoT Lab platform, we developed a smart energy management scenario that incorporates participatory sensing mechanisms. In this scenario the system tries to optimize the operation of indoor units that consume energy in terms of energy efficiency and user satisfiability via participatory sensing practices. First the participants are incentivised to provide access to their hand-held devices from which data on the ambient environmental conditions are collected and aggregated into live luminance maps. Then, the indoor lighting units and A/C facilities are dynamically adjusted based on the ambient conditions and the feedback provided by the participants to the system on their personal preferences and experienced comfort.

  • Smart Energy Management in a Beer Factory

    The current use case was implemented through a collaboration of the CTI team from IoT Lab with an industrial partner. The partner is a beer industry which ranks as the third largest brewer in the world, based on volume production. The premises where the use case was conducted belong to the largest Beer Factory in the Balkan Area. More info

  • ekoNET solutions for addressing air-pollution in Smart Cities

    Measurement of the air quality represents an important aspect of quality of life in the cities, as well as for running responsible operations in different industries. ekoNET portable testbeds Error: Reference source not found composed of low cost sensor based monitoring devices (EB800/RPi800) enable a real time monitoring of the air quality (gas and particle sensors, sensors for air pressure, humidity, temperature and noise measurements) in urban and rural areas and they can be deployed either indoor or outdoor. Advantages include high mobility and portability, easy installation, cheaper sensor technologies and a better utilisation of data. Each device includes a GPS module for location and GPRS mobile network interface for data transfer. More info

  • Report on the HEPIA datacenter

    Smart HEPIA is an IoT platform used to measure temperature, humidity, brightness, physical presence and energy consumption inside the HEPIA building at Geneva. The platform is also used to control blinds, radiator valves and lighting. The Smart HEPIA project has been designed and implemented as a joint initiative between HEPIA ( and Mandat International. All the devices installed in the HEPIA building has been integrated by Mandat International onto the IoT Lab Testbed as a Service (TBaaS). More info

  • Report on the week of the sustainable development

    This document presents the work done during the week of the sustainable development held at the HEPIA during the second week of September 2016. The workshop was organised by Mandat International and presents the principles of the Internet of Things (IoT) to the HEPIA students. The main topic is the energy efficiency inside the HEPIA building and how to reduce the energy consumption in this building. The students have proposed some new ideas to improve the energy efficiency of the building. The students' propositions have been written using the IoT Lab mobile application and consisted of scenarios with the sensors and the actuators installed in the room A534. Afterwards, the best ideas were implemented using the IoT Lab Testbed as a Service (TBaaS). More info

  • Smart Sustainable Cities Survey

    The International Telecommunication Union (ITU), based in Geneva, is developing a homogeneous manner to assess how sustainable and smart are cities. In order to ensure a close alignment with citizens needs and expectations, the experimentation intends to collect citizens’ opinions and inputs in order to research:
    1. How citizens could be directly involved in the cities smartness and sustainability evaluation;
    2. How the current Smart Sustainable Cities (SSC) key performance indicators (KPIs) are aligned with the citizens view.
