Aveiro Tech City Living Lab

The Aveiro Tech City Living Lab (ATCLL) is composed of an advanced communications infrastructure and an urban platform for data management and innovative analytics that, together, provide an open and large-scale technology laboratory in the city at the service of researchers, digital industries, start-ups, scaleups, R&D centres, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders interested in developing, testing or demonstrating concepts, products or services.

The access infrastructure is supported on state-of-the-art fibre technology, reconfigurable radio units, 5G-NR radio and 5G network services, aggregating and interconnecting a panoply of sensors and remote information gathering units that extend throughout the urban area of the city of Aveiro. The digital urban platform will allow the collection, processing and analysis of data, enabling the sharing of information from various sources (e.g. sensors, municipal applications and Data Base and external data sources), providing analytical services and the possibility of building predictive services for the different specific areas of city management.
