The BISITE Research Group of the University of Salamanca will promote sustainable mobility thanks to ActivEdgeMobile, (Promotion of active mobility through Digital Tokens, Edge Computing and Multiagent Systems – PDC2022-133161-C32). A project for the development of the proof of concept for which we have obtained funding from the Ministry of Science and Innovation.
Juan Manuel Corchado has participated as director of the BISITE Research Group together with Sara Rodriguez, professor and researcher at BISITE. The project is presented under the name “Edge-IoT platform based on energy-efficient DLT technologies for the exchange of green digital tokens through the execution of smart contracts.
ActivEdgeMobile aims to develop and validate a solution to promote active – and thus healthy – and environmentally sustainable mobility. The solution aims to make use of technologies such as Internet of Things, Edge Computing, Green Digital Tokens based on Distributed Ledger Technologies, Recommender Systems, Virtual Agent Organizations and Agreement Technologies.
Technology boosting physical activity
Physical activity plays an important role in the health of citizens in today’s cities. Activities such as walking or cycling outdoors are two ways to promote physical activity. However, in cities it is not always easy to find safe and healthy routes (e.g., areas with low pollution, low noise, green areas, low traffic, safe, etc.) to perform these activities.
In this regard, it is even more necessary to promote the replacement of polluting transport vehicles with cleaner and healthier alternatives that, at the same time, involve more physical exercise, such as cycling. Faced with this situation, both companies and public administrations are very interested in accessing tools that allow them to automatically promote activities aimed at a more active mobility of citizens.
We are sure that this will be an excellent initiative to promote healthy habits in our society.
