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.
Almanac improves quality of life for asthma patients in Stockholm Smart City
An application for people with asthma, developed by Swedish partners CNet and based on the ALMANAC platform, came second in the Stockholm Smart City Sprint Hack on 22nd June

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.
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.

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.
