The Smart City App Hack (SCAH) and FIWARE join hands to launch the SCAH-FIWARE Online Competition. This worldwide initiative asks developers, entrepreneurs and urban activists to present their innovative web or mobile app using FIWARE to address any of the five smart city challenges identified by SCAH to help improve citizens quality of life. The online competition will run from September 1st to October 15th.

The best apps will be rewarded by impressive prizes starting by joining the FIWARE Accelerator Programme with more than 150K€ in grants, getting global visibility at Smart City Expo World Congress 2015 and the Mobile World Congress 2016. The less you can get is 10.000 € in cash prizes !

What can you do with FIWARE in the city?

FIWARE Generic Enablers ease the development of a context-aware application which exploits multiple data coming from different devices connected to the Internet of Things or some other sources of context information in the city. In other words, with FIWARE:

1. you can connect your own sensors and devices through IDAS IoT Agents;

2. you can use media streams from the city to analyze audio or video or to create Multimedia applications with Kurento;

3. you can generate or reuse context data from the city (open data) to be aware of what is happening now with Orion Context Broker, or store and query the context history;

4. you can analyze in real time context data (Proton CEP) or in batch big data analysis (Cosmos)

5. you can analyze and visualize your data with the business intelligence tool (Spago BI) or reate your web application with a mashup (Wirecloud);

6. and many other features that you will find in FIWARE catalogue, all of them protected with the security Framework (IdM, PEP, PDP)
