Source of Funding: This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 691876
Smarter Together - is an initiative funded by the EU and implemented in the three cities of Vienna, Lyon and Munich. Together with the citizens and private partners, the city of Vienna is developing smart city solutions in the south-eastern district of Simmering. The focus is on the areas of building renovation, energy, mobility and logistics as well as information and communication technology. An emphasis is made on dialogue, in line with the Vienna Smart City Framework Strategy where the human dimension of the Smart City is the focus of attention. The aim is to create an innovative, livable and environmentally friendly Simmering and Vienna of the future with the local people.

E-Car Sharing in social housing BWSG-Hauffgasse
E-Car sharing in the social neighbourhood is an innovative approach in the issue of e-mobility in social housing, contributing not only to the environmental goals but also to the community building as a strong societal element.
SIMmobile-Mobile Urban Living Lab in Vienna-Simmering
The SIMmobile is the key outreach, participation and co-creation lab of the Smarter Together project in Vienna.
E-Logistics at Siemens in Vienna-Simmering
E-logistics are an important element in modern on-site plant management contributing to a substantial CO2 reduction. Employees's involvement contributes to the acceptable and sustainable innovation dynamics in the plant, increasing its overall competitiveness.
Open Source Database
The use of database is essential in all modern project management. The essential question is hence whether the data collecting and processing changes in the implementation process are open source or the solution is vendor locked. Smarter Together Vienna chose an open source solution based on FIWARE.
Smart Data Platform & Data Gatekeeper
The City of Munich has built a Platform to collect and handle all generated smart city data accordingly. In a concept named "Data Gatekeeper" all elements that are important for a city are discussed- including data privacy aspect, data classification & anonymization, use case building and data model
E-Bike Sharing for the District
A first E-Bike terminal was opened in April 2018 at the central cemetery of Vienna. A second terminal is at the mobility point. 12 E-Bikes and a Cargo-Bike are in operation. The E-Bikes are available via the SIMBike App or through a chip card offered at the spot. Sycube developed the whole system.
Multimodal Mobility Stations
'Mobility stations' make environment-friendly urban travel possible and offer sharing alternatives to buying one's own vehicle. Eight multi-modal mobility stations were built in the project area, two of which also include Shared District Boxes. Additionally, the stations offer free wifi.
Munich SmartCity App
The Munich SmartCity app is an example of how to make an existing offer smarter – within the Smarter Together project the Munich app became the Munich SmartCity app by adding additional smart services as well as a more user-friendly design.
Shared District Boxes
Munich is testing two “Shared District Boxes” located in the proximity of mobility stations. These boxes make delivery, shopping and sharing services possible on a 24/7 basis. Each box features compartments at different temperatures (cooling, refrigerated or at a constant ambient temperature).
Refurbishment of a Municipal Housing Estate in Vienna (Social Housing Lorystraße 54-60)
The project Lorystraße 54-60 is a medium-size housing block with 95 flats, completed in 1966 and owned by ‘Wiener Wohnen’ the city-owned social housing operator. The thermal refurbishment reduced the heat energy demand by more than 80 percent. Additionally, a 9 kWp PV-System was installed.
Refurbishment of a Rental Social Housing in Vienna
The project ‘Hauffgasse 37-47’, completed in 1987, is a large housing block with 485 flats. It is supplied by a micro-district-heating-grid and currently fired with natural gas. The objectives were mainly focusing on the reduction of energy demand and the integration of renewable energy sources.
Smart Data: Intelligent Lamp Posts in Munich
Intelligent lamp posts were installed to trial sensors for smart data collection in Munich. Additionally, the lamp posts can provide free wifi access (M-WLAN). The lamp posts are used as "urban labs" to test digital services and their benefits.
Smarter Together offers products and services for these Smart City Solutions
Building Energy Management System
According to the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), buildings are responsible for approximately 40% of energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions in the EU.
Intelligent and Connected Public Space
An intelligent and connected public space collects data in public areas and displays or reacts on the data. The data can be securely transferred via Wi-Fi or other similar technologies to be, i.e. combined with a central system.
Public Charging System for Electric Vehicles
The current EU regulation on emissions for cars is the strictest worldwide. Along with further restrictions the thresholds cannot be meet with conventional cars only anymore. One alternative technology, reducing the local emissions, are electric vehicles.
Bike Sharing System
A bike sharing system intends to provide a community with a shared fleet of bikes. Therefore, individual users do not have to own a bike, but rather everyone can use the fleet flexibly.
Virtual Power Plant
VPPs are a response to the growing number of distributed energy resources (DER) making their way onto the grid, as VPPs allow their production to be pooled to achieve the flexibility and scale needed to trade in the electricity market; unleashing gains for prosumers, aggregators, and grid operators.
