IoT Living Lab

The IoT Living Lab provides public networks, open infrastructure, and data for developers to accelerate emerging IoT innovations for Smart City solutions. We do this by engaging developers and citizens in public spaces using a bottom up, crowd sourcing approach to innovate by “sandboxing” the city.

Glimworm creates Internet of Things infrastructure for the city of Amsterdam via the IoT Living Lab by installing Eddystone beacons, iBeacons, sensors and LoRa (long range) wireless networks that accelerate smart citizen solutions.

The Living Lab is open and implemented in public spaces to provide access to developers and solution providers to test next generation interactive mobile applications that also generate open data thus creating new value chains across industries.

The goal of IoT Living Lab is to provide IoT infrastructure and actionable Open Data and developer friendly platforms for emerging IoT innovations which stimulate the creation of new startups and mobile applications making a rapid impact on the local economy.

Recently Glimworm received 100,000 euros funding from the Open Data Incubator Europe to hold the European Presidency IoT challenge that will focus on solving big problems that create positive social impact and share those innovations with other EU member states.

Specific (and demonstrable) applications include the following: The Beacon Mile, Indoor wayfinding, Interactive Museum exhibitions (e-Culture), Smart Parking signs, crowd management, virtual guides and next generation wearables for sports and e-health apps.
