MONICA project successfully closed

The MONICA project demonstrated how cities can use IoT technologies to support the management of security and (un)wanted sound at large, open-air cultural and sporting events which attract and affect many people. Even though the project officially ended 31st of March 2020, the results live on and we invite you to browse our pages to see how you can benefit from the solutions and experiences of the project.

Achievements of the MONICA Project:

Applications for crowd safety and security

MONICA services include crowd and capacity monitoring, detection of security, health and safety incidents as well as location of and communication between staff, visitors and control centre.

Applications for sound monitoring and control

Organisers of concerts want to give their performers and audiences the best music experience but they also wish to comply with local regulations on environmental sound exposure. MONICA deploys an acoustic system consisting of novel sound field control schemes which provide an optimised sound field in the audience area while minimising the exposure to noise in neighbouring areas.

Applications for citizen engagement and innovation

MONICA created several user-driven applications, rooted in advanced technologies grown by the needs of cities and its people.
MONICA created an open data repository that enables cities to make MONICA sensor data available to the public. The aim is to provide factual information as a basis for better decision-making and enable the use of the results for new smart city applications.

CheckHealth launches RheumaCloud

Today CheckHealth launched RheumaCloud, a service for rheumatologists aiding long-term management of patients. RheumaCloud is designed to help a rheumatologist engaging patients in their own care between visits to the clinic. An intelligent assistant guides and instructs the patient what to do every day based on a health plan provided by the rheumatologist. RheumaCloud continuously visualises the health status for the patients based on their own input. This gives them feedback on progress and stimulates them to follow your therapy, and increases their self-efficacy. RheumaCloud is the result of a long-term collaboration between the Rheumatology department at University Hospital Dusseldorf, UDUS. CheckHealth Sweden is a MedTech company focused on developing and marketing products and services for remote care and patient data collection. CheckHealth Sweden is a subsidiary of CNet.
