30.000€ funding! Do not miss the chance to solve Trikala’s challenge!


A tender has been launched by the University Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC) for the development of a mobile or web application which addresses a mobility challenge in the city of Trikala. In order to develop this solution, you will get the support of ΞMBERS, a Mobility Back-end as a Service (MBaaS) that provides all the tools you need to build your solution – mobility data, open interfaces and SDKs ready to use. During the project real sensor data of many European cities are being integrated into the platform that can be accessed by device and application developers through standardized open API.


Join ΞMBERS’ Open Call by solving Trikala’s challenge!

The City of Trikala is looking to provide its citizens with a smart mobility solution that not only routes and guides them to a free parking spot of their choice, but also gives the city a tool to monitor and visualize traffic and parking occupancy in real-time. Moreover, the integration and unification of data from multiple departments will allow the city to develop useful insights, such as historical usage of parking spots and how parking occupancy and traffic affect traffic flow in and around the city.
