About the project

The ALMANAC project (Reliable Smart Secure Internet Of Things For Smart Cities) is developing a service delivery platform that integrates Smart City Information System for green and sustainable Smart City applications. The ALMANAC Smart City Platform collects, aggregates, and analyses real-time or near real-time data from heterogeneous sensors and actuators to support Smart City processes. The key element of the platform is a middleware based on a SOA architecture supporting semantic interoperability of heterogeneous resources, devices, services and data management. The middleware supports various Smart City applications by leveraging on a communication network built dynamically by federating private and public networks.

Showcasing ALMANAC at Ecomondo
The City of Turin presented ALMANAC at the green technology event which is the largest showcase in the Euro-Mediterranean area for advanced and sustainable technology for processing and recycling all kinds of waste.
Video on the ALMANAC waste management application
Watch a prototype demonstration of how to achieve dynamic waste collection based on sensors communicating fill levels and citizens reporting waste issues.
Deployment of the waste management application in Turin
On 28th September, the City of Turin started testing technologies for two underground waste containers. By installing an electronic locking system for unsorted waste and sensors monitoring the fill levels of the containers, Turin is hoping to optimise the waste collection and to motivate users to increase the quality of waste.
The ALMANAC project in EETimes
Rick Merrit, Silicon Valley Bureau Chief at the EE times, who gave a key note speech at ALMANAC’S recent M2M workshop in Copenhagen, has just published a story on Turin’s smart city project.
Successful M2M workshop in Copenhagen
On 30th September 2015, ALMANAC conducted a full-day workshop on novel M2M technologies and their applications in cooperation with TDC Denmark and Telecom Italia. The workshop focused on business opportunities from the new access networks for Internet of Things objects in the context of Smart Cities and it was a great success.

Paper presented at the FiCloud conference
The federated Smart City Platform developed within the context of ALMANAC was presented by Dario Bonino from ISMB.
Hello – my name is Smarty and I am a smart bin
Demonstrations of the latest waste and water management solutions were shown at the IoT Week 2015. Watch the video where the smart bin Smarty introduces waste management with ALMANAC.
ALMANAC knowledge used in the deployment of capillary networks in Italy
The capillary network technologies developed and tried in ALMANAC are being engineered and pre-deployed in four Italian cities during the next two years.

The ALMANAC project is co-funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 609081, objective ICT-2013.1.4 'A reliable, smart and secure Internet of Things for Smart Cities'. Duration: 1st September 2013 to 31st August 2016.
