Portugal Smart Nation: The tale of how a nation can become global
This side event will present how the Smart Portugal ecosystem is nowadays leading the way on Smart City solutions and emerging as a global player. The session will depart from the notion of the city platforms as enablers of data-driven urban innovations and show case flagship solutions on key sectors such as mobility and tourism.
Join us and become part of the smart transformation of Portugal.

CEiiA – Centro de Engenharia e Desenvolvimento
CEiiA – Centre of Engineering and Development develops new technologies, products and services for the automotive, aeronautical, urban mobility, ocean and space industries.
It has a team of 300 researchers and engineers with full capabilities for product development, including concept, design, research, engineering, prototyping and testing of materials and full-scale structures. CEiiA also provides industrialization support to several Portuguese and international companies, with a subsidiary in Brazil (MIND Brazil) and engineering teams deployed in Spain, France, United Kingdom, Switzerland, and Italy.
On smart and sustainable mobility, CEiiA has 12 years of experience in the development of mobility projects, integrating the development of vehicles (2, 3 and 4 wheels), intelligent platforms and connectivity systems. It works with more than 80 cities all over the world, and is partner of mobility and sustainability international players, namely the United Nations.
‘Valuing what is not emitted’ as opposed to ‘offsetting what is emitted’ is the ground-breaking approach that CEiiA brings to cities all over the world to support their decarbonization processes.
AYR is based on a blockchain-enabled platform that counts and values C02 emissions avoided by people making sustainable mobility choices. AYR rewards the user with green digital credits (AYR ‘coin’) that store the value of C02 savings and can be exchanged for green goods and services, inducing the creation of digital sustainable ecosystems. The platform is interoperable with existing mobility platforms.
AYR has been deployed in the Portuguese Cities of Matosinhos (Oporto) and Cascais (Lisbon), in collaboration with the municipalities, global operators of micromobility sharing services (e-bikes, e-scooters, e-kick scooters), and users.

The technology it develops is its privileged way of touching and shaping the Society and the World in which we live. Digital for People is the commitment and responsibility that FUTURE COMPTA takes to contribute to a better, more sustainable world where people are first.
FUTURE COMPTA, asserts itself globally, as a company of Innovation and Development of Digital Products, where IOT solutions across multiple markets are framed, having the capacity to operate comprehensively as a technology integrator and provider of IT Services and end-to-end business solutions.
In the sectors where it operates, it delivers value by efficiently managing the operations and means of its customers through an Intelligent Consulting approach.
Holistic Approach for Smart Cities IoT Governance
FUTURE COMPTA offers municipalities a rich set of IoT Services, all provided from the same unique backend interface allowing cities to have a global unified view on the city daily operations and management.
Currently in use by more than 45 cities worldwide, “FUTURE COMPTA Smart Cities” Service Modules are helping municipalities to improve city services efficiency, contributing to achieve the sustainability goals they are proposed to while reducing costs and improving Citizens satisfaction.
Service Modules & Aggregation Layer
FUTURE COMPTA Smart Cities Services offer is comprised by:
- Energy Management for Public Buildings
- Street Lighting Management
- Urban Waste Collection Management
- Green Spaces Management
- Forest Fire Detection
- Digital Citizenship
Software modules can be acquired independently (modular approach) allowing cities to “grow as they need”, adjusted to their reality and available budgets.
All modules share a common BEE2 Verticals Aggregation Layer that amongst other advantages, guarantees each city a unique database, a sole login entry point for all the installed services with single sign-on, unified analytics and reporting plus, the same “look and feel” interface across all the applications.
Further to the operational and financial benefits inherent to this model, this approach is a real enabler of the “holistic approach” that allow cities to get the 360-degree integrated view on the performance and efficiency levels of the IoT services deployed.

About SMIITY – Smart Tourism Platform
SMIITY is an accessible tourism platform, free of charge and compatible with iOS and Android mobile devices, which allows regions, cities and / or monuments to communicate with tourists and citizens.
How? Making available to the user, in their language, news, events, points of interest, walking routes and much more.
Through interaction with beacons, small signal emitters that send these contents to the user’s mobile device via Bluetooth Low Energy, these contents can be automatically presented to the user, without the user having to search for them.
Madeira, namely Funchal, will have the installation of several beacons in different parts of the city, namely at the Quinta das Cruzes Museum, providing a more dynamic and interactive experience for citizens and tourists.
In addition to being accessible, SMIITY is an inclusive solution, particularly for the blind community, as it has text-to-speech functionality, which converts text content to audio, in the device’s language.
The mobile device can also be used as an audio guide, making the user experience even more complete, rich and immersive and, thus, eliminating the need for additional equipment.
SMIITY is available in Portugal, the United States and Italy.
