Visits to the pilot cities have begun to gain a better understanding of the challenges they face and the solutions MONICA can offer.

The games of Yorkshire County Cricket Club and Leeds Rhinos at Headingly Carnegie Stadium, Lyon’s light festival Fête des Lumières, Hamburg’s funfair Hamburg DOM, Turin’s night life phenomenon Movida and the Kappa FuturFestival: MONICA has begun its first round of visits, interviewing all relevant stakeholders involved in organising and managing these big events, to establish needs, requirements and the choice of applications.

During April and May, MONICA partners will visit the remaining cities, TIVOLI in Copenhagen and the City of Bonn to complete the scenarios and use cases for the use of IoT technologies.
