Athens, Greece – 05 October 2021 - Intracom Telecom, a global telecommunication systems and solutions vendor, announced a Smart City project in Belgrade, Serbia, focusing on monitoring the city's air pollution and improving the overall air quality. Intracom Telecom, together with its partner Ecomaks Solutions, have undertaken the implementation of this multi-year project, while first results are expected before the end of the year.
The City of Belgrade, aiming at improving its citizens' quality of life and providing Smart City services, initiated the procedures and started looking for solutions to monitor and eventually reduce air pollution. Intracom Telecom is providing its state-of-the-art Unified IoT Orchestration platform (uiTOP™) for data acquisition & visualization and its innovative Cognitiva™ suite of AI-powered applications for data modeling & forecasting, while Ecomaks Solutions is supplying the air quality stations.
Through this project, a wide network of air quality monitoring stations will be installed all over the city, monitoring and measuring several air pollutants, as well as other environmental parameters closely linked with air pollution, such as temperature, air pressure, wind, humidity, etc. The solution is complemented by a centralized data acquisition, processing & visualization module, through which data are collected, enhanced with other sources and further analyzed. Based on such rich data source, the system will be able to provide short & mid-term air quality forecasts, on the area 's AQI (Air Quality Index) as well a number of pollutants. All advanced data processing, modelling & forecasting are performed leveraging AI & Machine Learning techniques, so as to predict pollutants levels based on the collected & enriched data.
"Air pollution remains stubbornly high in many cities across Europe and we feel it is our obligation to contribute our innovative Smart Cities solutions portfolio to changing the air quality in our cities. Our IoT & AI technologies will help the City of Belgrade in having a healthier atmosphere and preventing many citizens from living in a polluted area.
