How can the Internet of Things (IoT) create a better life for those of us who live in the city?
In particular, what role can it play in improving healthcare, making our streets and transport safer or informing and empowering citizens?
The determination to find answers to these questions has been the driving force behind Manchester’s high-profile CityVerve project.
Backed by government funding, CityVerve is a smart city initiative involving local authorities, start-ups, universities and a number of technology partners - including BT. In fact, the project has seen twenty-one different organisations coming together to apply the latest IoT innovations to a number of use cases in the city.
