          Abstract

          This paper discusses the development and progress within the multi-partner £10M CityVerve Internet of Things (IoT) demonstrator project currently underway in Manchester, UK, focussing on innovative public realm Installations that marry together design, virtual technology, contemporary art and heritage. CityVerve IoT city demonstrator is based around the large-scale deployment of IoT technologies creating a ‘Healthy City Region’, building on the ground-breaking work achieved through the Devolution Manchester agreement between the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and HM Government.

          A range of use cases have been identified with partners across four key themes: health and social care; energy and environment; transport; culture, public realm and community. The project will pioneer the deployment of a range of existing and newly developed IoT technologies across these use cases in an integrated way to derive place based impacts and benefits. This approach will demonstrate and evidence benefits to citizens through environmental improvements, economic opportunities, and the more efficient and effective delivery of services. The demonstrator will provide the ability to create new services and operating models through the interoperability between these four themes, establishing an IoT Centre of Excellence for the UK.
