From the outset, Eridanis has believed in the philosophy of returning data ownership to the end user.
Today, as a Gold Member of the FIWARE Foundation, Eridanis has managed to work for a variety of projects and companies consistently using FIWARE technology.
Eridanis was established in 2016, the same year as FIWARE, a happy coincidence. Thanks to FIWARE, Eridanis has been able to work successfully with many communities.
The Aix-Marseille-Provence metropolis, the largest urban area in France and made up of 92 municipalities, located on the Mediterranean coast in the south of France, is at the forefront of technological innovations in smart cities. The metropolis also came out on top in the ranking of the most advanced smart city in France in 2019, notably thanks to the number of projects, the number of contracts, the diversity and the maturity of these projects.
The city wants to focus its development on improving and operating the city with new technologies by building on what has been its strength: the quality of life of its citizens. The metropolis places the citizen at the heart of its concerns in order to bring about an industrial and societal revolution that positively impacts citizens in their daily lives and the modernisation of the territories.
As the Metropolis makes the environment an absolute priority, air quality is becoming the first priority of the Environmental Agenda. In this context, the city has launched, with its partners, the DIAMS (Digital Alliance for Marseille Sustainability) project, 80% of which is funded by the European Union. The project consists of deploying a platform for exchanging air quality data and digital services that allows everyone (political decision-makers, experts, citizens, civil society, economic actors, for example) to get involved in developing coordinated action plans at all territorial levels (individual, hyper-local, urban, regional, national and supranational). 2,000 mobile sensors are made available to citizens and public service actors, thus becoming actors in pollution monitoring.
Air quality data is collected via a digital platform set up by Atos, and made available in Open Data, to encourage the creation of new applications.
Metropole Nice Côte d'Azur
The Nice – Côte d’Azur metropolitan region is located on the Mediterranean Sea in the south of France, near the Italian border and the enclave of Monaco. The region has a population of approximately one million, of which 340,000 live in the city itself. The region’s economy is based on three main factors:
– the port, which is the main link with the island of Corsica;
– the airport, which is the third largest in France and the gateway to the entire Côte d’Azur tourist cluster
– tourism itself.
As a world pioneer and recognised intelligent city, the Nice Côte d’Azur Metropolis has taken up the challenge of new technologies and new sectors, and is currently pursuing a resolutely ambitious policy aimed at improving the lives of its inhabitants, optimising city management and creating jobs.
The Nice Côte d’Azur Metropolis places innovation and sustainable development at the heart of its economic development strategy. The many Smart City initiatives undertaken on its territory have led the Nice Côte d’Azur Metropolis to strengthen its collaboration with major industrial groups, local SMEs and start-ups. The city of Nice is recognised as one of the most innovative cities in Europe in the field of smart cities.
To operate more efficiently and quickly in modern smart cities like Nice, Eridanis, a FIWARE member, has developed a standard offer for a smart city master plan based on an architecture with many components from the FIWARE catalogue, with the Orion context broker being the main pillar of the solution.
The original Eridanis platform based on FIWARE components was co-created with the city of Nice before becoming a commercial offer via the UGAP (Union des Groupements d’Achats Publics). The solution has evolved over the course of the projects and today offers a solid database, capable of adapting very quickly to numerous applications thanks to the flexibility and openness offered by the NGSI protocol as standardised by FIWARE.
This basic architecture is then adapted to each project in a specific way, taking into account the different industrial fields, cities and territories. Eridanis strives to use the Smart Data Models defined by FIWARE within the projects, in order to push the customers towards the standards as much as possible while ensuring interoperability.
Reunion is an island in the Indian Ocean and an overseas department. It is located approximately 500 km east of the island of Madagascar. In January 2021, it had a population of 858,450. Like the other four overseas departments, Reunion also has the status of a region of France, and is an integral part of the French Republic. The island is an outermost region of the European Union and is part of the euro zone. The economic engine of the region is tourism, followed by the production of agricultural goods.
Due to the economic performance which is highly dependent on the environment, the island’s government decided to develop a strategy for an ecological and industrial transformation of the tourism and agricultural sectors. To this end, the city has set up a pilot project in the community of La Possession and launched a call for tenders for the development of a Smart Island platform for ecological and industrial transformation.
The tender was won by FIWARE member Eridanis, which is developing the digital transformation platform (2021).
The company was congratulated for the development of the project “Definition of a platform for ecological and industrial transition”, for which Eridanis recommended the use of a standard architecture based on FIWARE. The company was congratulated by the French Prime Minister, Jean Castex, and the President of the TCO, for the development of this project and its participation in the award of a grant from the French government.
The city of Noisy-le-Grand
Noisy-le-Grand is a small town in the suburbs of Paris, with a population of about 70,000. It is located 15 kilometres east of the city centre of Paris. Thanks to its good train connection to the city, Noisy-le-Grand is very popular with commuters travelling to and from Paris.
The city’s smart city strategy is conceptualised around a Smart Data approach. This includes a global database to ensure the interoperability of data from the city’s various digital services. In addition, the strategy aims to develop tools using artificial intelligence to help improve the city’s services.
Smart mobility, smart health and smart environment solutions. All the data collected is collected, analysed and made available on an open data portal.
This makes Noisy-le-Grand more transparent for the city’s inhabitants. They can also benefit from a better quality of services thanks to the information shared by the city’s digital services.
In this way, the city government wants to ensure that all citizens benefit from the city’s digital transformation.
In Noisy-le-Grand, the development of the platform focuses on an open data platform that is being developed with the help of a pilot involving air monitoring stations and other IoT devices.
