Project Title

RADICAL (RApid Deployment and adoption of sustainable socially-aware and intelligent sensing services for emerging smart cities)

Project Duration

36 months

Start Date

01 March 2013

Funding Authority

ICT Policy Support Programme (PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP)


Pilot B

Type of Instrument

R&D Project




In the scope of RADICAL, TAGES has a role to perform the analysis of stakeholders’ requirements and requirements for Pilot operations, user evaluation tasks and planning of sustainability and replicability of the services.

The main goal of the project is to provide the means for cities and SMEs to rapidly develop, deploy, replicate, pilot and evaluate a diverse set of sustainable ICT services that leverage established Internet-of-things and social networking infrastructures. These services will address the main societal and business challenges that are targeted by modern smart cities.

To this end, RADICAL will take advantage of available R&D results (in the scope of background FP7 projects of the consortium partners) in order to integrate a novel ICT platform enabling the rapid development and deployment of pervasive multi-sensory and socially-aware services for urban environments and territories. Based on the RADICAL platform the project partners (notably the SME integrators) will develop, deploy and pilot seven distinct pilot services dealing with Cycling Safety Improvement, Products Carbon Footprint Management, Object-driven Data Journalism, Participatory Urbanism, Augmented Reality, Eco-consciousness and the Commercial and Transactional Data for Pedestrian Flows. These pilot services will be accordingly replicated across several smart cities of the consortium, taking into account the peculiarities of the various cities in terms of their technical infrastructures, socio-economical characteristics and legal environments. While all the services will be deployed across multiple smart cities, a living labs approach involving representative samples of the population will be employed in order to study the penetration and sustainability of the services within each individual city.
