iWater - Water Pollution Detection for the Smart Cities of the Future
|Coordinator||Ericsson AB - Ericsson AB, Torshamnsgatan|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 449 894|
|Project duration||April 2018 - December 2018|
|Venture||Challenge-Driven Innovation – Stage 1 initiation|
|Call||Challenge-Driven Innovation - Stage 1 Initiation 2018 (spring)|
Purpose and goal
Purpose and scope of the feasibility study was to apply to step 2 of the UDI to further develop a proof of concept regarding digital monitoring of water quality, that had been concluded in 2017. As Ericsson´s strategy for IoT solutions changed during autumn 2018, Ericsson had to withdraw from the project. The project group decided not to apply to UDI step 2 and the project goals could not be met.
Expected results and effects
The expected effect was to investigate the possibility of being able to take the project to step 2 of the UDI call. Due to changes in strategies within Ericsson, the outcome was that the project could not be taken further.
Planned approach and implementation
The project carried out three steering group meetings and began work on exploring the possibilities for a digital monitoring solution for water quality for smart cities. The project investigated if this could be integrated with other similar solutions for smart cities. The universities continued to work on analyzing sensor data to understand the possibilities for a future project. During the autumn, the strategy within Ericsson changed, so the project was not driven further by Ericsson. The university parties examined the possibilities of moving forward but decided to abstain.
