The maintenance in cities is currently run in a very inefficient way. There is garbage in the streets, graffitis several types of lighting that stay broken for a while, damages in the streets and side-walks etc. This leads to inconvenience for the citizens or even a threat to public safety.
Smart Futures will build a platform combining notifications from citizens with data from an IoT sensor network. This allows the city to communicate easily with its inhabitants to perform the maintenance tasks quicker and more efficient. The citizens involvement will be stimulated by gamification and rewarded with the first civic crypto-currency, leading to more engaged citizens and collaborative cities. This makes the maintenance even more efficient.
