Starlab is participating in the coming “Smart City Expo World Congress 2014” that will take place in Barcelona, Spain on November 18th, 19th and 20th at Gran Via Exhibition Center (l’Hospitalet de Llobregat).
The Congress and Expo Area had visitors from 293 world cities from 80 countries last year, with 300 speakers and 3000 delegates attending.
Starlab Barcelona will attend via Generalitat de Catalunya stand presenting its SmartIrrigation system, lately modified to be used in Parks and City Gardens. Moreover, the tree health monitoring system called “iArbre” will also be presented.
SmartIrrigation is a web-based soil moisture information service for irrigation management that integrates data from our specifically designed on-site sensors with space imaging. With the objective of knowing the soil moisture, temperature and EC levels in real time, Ajuntament de Barcelona main council deployed an integrated sensor network to gather information about their parks and to control irrigation treatments in a more precise way.
Being able to control irrigation amounts allowed Parcs i Jardins de Barcelona to optimise water levels applied maintaining the desired level of humidity at all times.
On the other hand, a novel and innovative service was tested this summer in Barcelona city. iArbol is a tree health monitoring system based on Earth Observation techniques, that measures the Vegetation Index of trees from the space.
Come meet us at stand B232 (Generalitat de Catalunya)!
