Let's make cities and the citizens' lives better!
Welcome to the second MARVEL Newsletter, the H2020 EU-funded project planning to put Extreme Scale audio and visual data at the service of smart cities, to improve the well being and safety of citizens. The end of this quarter was crucial for our project since our first Work Package was completed, signaling the beginning of the change MARVEL aims to bring in the field of smart cities. WP1 could be described as a strategic review of our objectives and approach and was intended to refine everything we planned a few months ago, to ensure that our solution is still relevant and in line with recent technological and social evolution. Few outcomes that will be released in the upcoming days include the MARVEL Edge-to-Fog-to-Cloud architecture and the experimental protocol, that presents the real-life societal trial cases in the smart cities of Malta, Trento, and Novi Sad.
Our consortium, consisting of 17 Partners, worked hard to have everything in place and defined for the research to start and for the experiments to be ready to be performed. In the meantime, we have already started spreading awareness regarding our project and our objectives, collecting feedback and ideas from the market and the experts in the field but also from the citizens themselves using our social media platforms. Take a look on a few of the highlights of these last 4 months and make sure follow us online if you are not already, for more immediate updates!
