IESE CIMI Smart Cities 2019 730x1024

The Top 50 Smart Cities In The World 2019 – CITI IO

IESE Business School in Barcelona has released the data and rankings for the world’s smartest cities for 2019. The IESE Cities in Motion Index (CIMI) is now on its sixth year and the research is led by IESE professors Pascual Berrone and Joan Enric Ricart. This year’s index covered a total of 174 cities (79 of them capitals) representing 80 countries.

The authors stressed in their study that no matter how good the city’s strategy is, without the active collaboration of the public sector, private companies, civic organizations, academic institutions, and government, nothing will be possible and it will be destined for failure.

Collaboration with IoT data is spelled YGGIO.

Smart cities must do more to deliver value for citizens | ITProPortal

Why interoperability is the key to delivering real value from IoT-connected cities.

This is the value of Yggio.

The alternatives for massive IoT and Smart Cities or Buildings would be to either invest in one technology like 5G and try to use it for everything or embrace the different technologies with their strength in different use cases and link everything together with Yggio.

“Samarbete och öppen källkod skyndar på kommunernas digitalisering” – Computer Sweden

Kommunerna måste få det lättare att dra nytta av framsteg som göra i andra kommuner, skriver Nordix vd Daniel Byström ​​​​​​​och föreslår införandet av en nationell app store för mjukvara baserad på öppen källkod.

Sensative kan inte annat än hålla med till 100%. Vi är med och driver denna fråga med vår open source-baserade horisontella IoT-plattform Yggio, för att skapa en grogrund för mängder av tjänster som lätt kan flyttas mellan olika kommuner.

Smart Cities: What about smart suburbs and villages?

The smart city movement is still in relative infancy. There’s something of an intellectual land-grab afoot, where multi-billion dollar companies are willing to develop smart city applications in exchange for being front-of-mind when it comes to the associated benefits of smart city technologies.

Yet as the excitement dies down and the movement spreads outwards from urban hubs to the suburbs and beyond, a more legitimate business case must be presented if smart technologies are to gain traction. The wow factor is not enough. Local planners, local authorities and local residents need clear socio-economic benefits that save money and improve lives.

What cities can learn from Barcelona on data and smart city projects 

“The smart-city model has been sold to policy-makers as a very top-down, technology-first agenda where primarily big tech vendors “basically preach a model of a highly technological city that would magically solve all our problems — a technological solutionism, let’s say. We understood that wasn’t going to work. We wanted a future model of Barcelona — a future city that was not just about technology but solving the big challenges we are facing in the city and putting people — not technology — first.”

Guldlänken 2019 till Stockholmsprojekt om öppna data

Riktigt roliga nyheter!

Vinnare av Guldlänken 2019 är projektet ÖdiS för en bred satsning på ökad användning av öppna data. ÖdiS är ett gemensamt projekt mellan alla 26 Stockholmskommuner.

Sensative i samarbete med Civity har levererat den tekniska plattformen som möjliggör projektet. Vi är mycket stolta!


The Gold Link is the Swedish eGovernment Awards which was initiated 1999, and is organized by Swedish Municipalities and County Council (SKL), Vinnova and the Government Office. The award highlights the main examples of innovative change work of the year in order to inspire change work, stimulate courage and increase the spread of smart solutions to more players.

Sensative and Civity supplies the technical solution to the winning project ÖdiS.

Amerikanskt intresse för svenskt innovationsarbete inom Smarta Staden

Sensative var nyligen tillsammans med Future by Lund med i den svenska delegation som deltog i Smart Cities Connect i Denver och kom hem med nya intressanta kontakter inom bland annat energiområdet. De amerikanska konferensdeltagarna visade stort intresse för det svenska sättet att driva samarbeten kring innovationer för smarta städer.

Vi åkte till Denver med ambitionen att lära oss hur man arbetar med städernas digitalisering i USA för att förstå hur och till vilken kundkategori vår horisontella IoT-plattform för smarta städer bör marknadsföras, berättar Mats Pettersson, vd på Sensative. Mats var dessutom en av talarna på konferensen.

Vilka lärdomar tog ni med hem från Smart cities connect?

– En stor lärdom är att USA består av väldigt många städer som alla har olika förutsättningar. Många städer är jämnstora med Malmö och Lund, och de visar ett mycket stort intresse för vår plattform och det sätt som vi jobbar med nära samarbete med både kommun, universitet och ett ekosystem av partners som levererar smarta tjänster till staden, säger Mats Pettersson på Sensative.

Connected street light deployments to reach 70 mln units by 2023 – Juniper Research

Smart street lighting deployments will help cities worldwide achieve cumulative energy savings of USD 15 billion by 2023, according to new data from Juniper Research.

These savings will be achieved through a combination of swapping to energy-efficient LEDs and by adding connectivity to monitor and control the status of individual lights. The research shows that connected street lights will grow on average by 42 percent per annum between 2019 and 2023, reaching almost 70 million units worldwide. 

One of the drivers behind open Smart City platforms

The research found that many cities are now moving away from point solutions, towards platform procurement. It argued that street lighting platforms would serve as the entry point for a number of cities looking to deploy smart city projects.

“The cost savings enabled by smart street lighting mean that many cities will look to this as a first-stage smart city project”, remarked research author Steffen Sorrell. “Choosing an open platform will be key here, as additional services can be launched from the same point, while simultaneously driving up third-party vendor competition.”

Sveriges smartaste stad

Linköping är Sveriges smartaste stad, tätt följt av Malmö, Lund och Uppsala. Bland de minst smarta städerna är Eskilstuna, Borås och Jönköping. Det anser respektive stads invånare, enligt rapporten Samhällsbarometern.

Kul att notera då både Malmö och Lund bygger IoT och smarta staden tillsammans med Sensative och vår integrationsplattform Yggio.

Connectivity Options for Smart Cities: LPWANs and Cellular Networks

Network connectivity may either make or break a smart city solution. This article discusses some of the key considerations in choosing the right network for a smart city solution. Smart cities should be built using IoT solutions that connect via a healthy range of wireless networks.

“All the networks are better in their own way, as explained above, and the choice of which to use may vary depending on the requirements, timelines, and budget. The conclusion is that a heterogeneous network approach is necessary for smart cities. Smart cities should be built using solutions and connecting via a wide range of wireless networks, including the new 5G wireless.”

All these networks still need to be managed effectively and efficiently. Sensative Yggio provides ONE API to all IoT technologies and standards. One technology neutral interface to all assets for seamless management and data flow integration.
