SCENT is a H2020 funded innovation project that will engage citizens in environmental monitoring and enable them to become the ‘eyes’ of the authorities and policy makers. In doing so citizens will support the monitoring of land-cover/use changes using their smartphones.
U-Hopper is tasked with the design and implementation of the crowdsourcing platform that enable people-generated web of observation to augment the costly in-situ infrastructure traditionally deployed.

The Fiesta-IoT project provides tools, techniques, processes and best practices enabling IoT testbed/platforms operators to interconnect their facilities in an interoperable way based upon cutting edge semantics-based solutions.Within Fiesta-IoT, U-Hopper aims at developing a conversational information service allowing users to interface with the IoT devices via a chatbot.
The chatbot is going to precisely respond to the specific users’ questions (‘Is room number 102 available at University of Surrey?’, ‘What will be the temperature tomorrow in Santander?’, ‘When is next bus to city center arriving?’) while concealing the heterogeneity of the underlying infrastructure, data and devices available in a Smart City.Discover more
