A CITY
FOR THE
CITIZEN...

A city that improves the quality of its citizens' lives by guaranteeing a sustainable social, economic and urban development, based on the innovation and the new information and communication technologies (ICT), is a city for its citizens.

CITIZENS
FOR THE
CITY...


Citizens who love their city and care about its development, are citizens for their city.

Children are the citizens of tomorrow’s cities. Educating them in civic values is a task for today, achieved through educational games in public spaces and by adding ICT.

YOUR CITY WANTS TO PLAY WITH YOU!
AND YOU?
A BETTER
CITY, A SMART
CITY...


A city that transforms itself into a global smart area, where citizens interact with the city through U-SMART TOYS and with their fellow citizens in U-SMART PARKS.



Communicating and getting familiar
Getting involved with the city development
Being active citizens
Rediscovering the city
Encouraging collaborative and inclusive gaming
Fostering comprehension and creativity
Promoting urban gamification through an App, transferring the virtual recreation to real outdoor playing.

OUR CITIES
ARE LIVING
ORGANISMS...
U-Smart Toys are more than techie toys
in the urban landscape
U-SMART VALUES
U-SMART TOYS are toys that foster civic values in children, such as collaboration, inclusion, creativity or sustainability. While inviting them to discover and care about their own city, they understand it as a living organism.

U-SMART AVATAR
Imagine the city represented by an avatar, a virtual character that reacts on whats happens in the U-SMART PARKS.

This avatar is the voice of the city's mood.

U-SMART APP
The city's avatar can interact with the citizens through a web and app.

U-SMART PARKS
The avatar invites the children to go out in the streets, intervene in the city, know it better and take care of it playing with the U-SMART TOYS in the U-SMART PARKS. The physical actions made by the children will influence whats happens online, everything in real time.


THE CITY
IS PHYSICAL
AND VIRTUAL...
The new SMART CITIES offer platforms for collect and manage the city's formation, with an extensive network of sensors that allow real-time management of the city.
U-SMART CONNECTED PARKS
U-SMART TOYS connect their toys through new ICT technologies to this interconnected network, all of them grouped in U-SMART PARKS. Each U-SMART PARK is an interactive node, formed by several U-SMART TOYS, which can act between themselves or in connection with other parks around the city.

U-SMART TOYS
The U-SMARTTOYS can be created as such or adapted to existing local street games using kits of sensors and actuators.

SENSORS
The sensors (of atmospheric pressure, temperature, lighting, sound, GPS ...) receive data from the use of toys by cildren, and the environment characteristics where are installed.

ACTUATORS
The actuators (of light, color, music, movement parts, inflatable parts, projections, etc), return the response back to the user, in this or another U-SMART TOY, completing the interaction with the citizen.

THE CITY
INTERACTS!

Through the U-SMART TOYS the most little citizens interact with each other, with his city and his mood; they receive calls to go to play on other parts of the city; are aware of the city where they live and learn civic urban values while are playing.

THE U-SMART
TOYS ARE A
GAME...
IN THE STREET
ACTIVE
The U-SMART TOYS are a new physical vehicle with which to interact and get out to play in the city.
AS ALWAYS
The activities proposed in the U-SMART PARKS are simple, and the games are based on typical shared games: Like hide-and-seek, run-and-catch, etc.
TECHNOLOGICAL

MECHANIC
The U-SMART PARKS devices have mechanicals components, to encourage children activity and react to their actions (such as inflatable or the bubble generator).
ICT
Keep in mind the ICT usage with the distance interaction. Making possible the interaction with other children in the park or, furthermore, intervening in what happens in others U-SMART PARKS. The data collected can be good for the city for solve the young people needs in public spaces.
SUSTAINABLE
The U-SMART TOYS are self-sustainable, they incorporate solar panels and power generators, which are activated by the movement of the games itself.
EDUCATIONAL
CITY
The U-SMART TOYS use new technologies for the city benefit, teaching children taking care of their city. Thus, it is an educational platform that any Smart City can adapt to their environment.
VALUES
Playing with the U-SMART TOYS give to the children an opportunity to convey values as collaboration, inclusion, cooperativity and public spirit.
CREATIVITY
The U-SMART CLOUD platform is at service of the young citizen, to learn, play and while interacting promote the individual and collective creativity.
SECURITY
The U-SMART TOYS are designed and builted to ensure safe use and long life, through a tight maintenance done by our teams.

THE VOICE
OF THE CITY:
U-SMART
The U-Smart App is a mobile and web application that works as a game and communication channel with the U-SMART TOYS users. Is where lives the city's avatar, the virtual representation of the needs and status of the real city.

With the app, the children take care of the city in a virtual way, becoming familiar with the values and civic habits: Recycling, energy savings, collaboration, inclusiveness.

At the same time, the avatar invites children through friendly messages to participate in street games, using the U-SMART TOYS in the U-SMART PARKS.

U-BUGS:
THE FIRST U-SMART CITY TOYS

The first U-SMART TOYS that arrives to the parks and markets of the city are five fun models made in Barcelona, each with its own character and capabilities, which have come to reinvent traditional street games with the incorporation of new technologies and fresh innovation design.
