Showcasing at the Village at the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona from 14-16 November is City Enabler for Digital Urban Services (CEDUS). Championed by EIT Digital and led by Engineering, this FIWARE-based software product allows urban service providers (public and private) and the local governments to actively collaborate to exploit urban data.

Used for crawling and collecting valuable data at urban scale, supporting decision making processes, and allowing the fast delivery of new digital urban services, the benefits are endless. But that isn’t all. CEDUS is open to other platforms through standard APIs, data duplication is avoided, and it’s compliant with the OASC (Open & Agile Smart Cities) principles. No vendor lock-in, no city lock-in.

The solution is currently being tested in the Province of Trento (IT), Municipality of Málaga (ES) and Municipality of Rennes (FR) and the future’s looking bright. In 2018, the creators of CEDUS plan to reach Technology Readiness Level 9 and launch it onto the market.
