Ateknea helps Widget 3.0 to make charity donations easy and safe

We are happy to announce that our participation in the project Widget 3.0 is coming to a successful close. Within the framework of this project, the Barcelona-based company, Worldcoo, has developed a new generation of their system which allows e-commerce users to easily and safely donate to charities and non-profits anytime they buy something online.

As part of this project, our Software Department developed three modules:

  • A Data Warehouse system that captures, pre-processes, and stores all the activity of the platform.
  • A Business Intelligence system that optimizes the ratio of transactions that end in donation, recommending projects, amounts, and visualizations based on the buyer profile.
  • An SDK that allows a third party to integrate the Widget 3.0 system into their mobile applications.

Bettair, a Powered by FIWARE Solution at the SCEWC 2017

Ateknea Solutions had the honour of being one of the eight shortlisted Fi-Tech applicants chosen by frontierCities2 to participate in the contracting phase of their accelerator programme.

FrontierCities2 aims to help FIWARE SMEs and Start-ups during their acceleration & incubation processes. This year it provided €1.6 million in grant funding across two Open Call strands (Market Acceleration and Development & Acceleration Grants), to further expand the available FIWARE-enabled smart mobility solutions while broadening into other Smart City areas.

FIWARE is a community of independent individuals and organisations who contribute the FIWARE mission of building “an open sustainable ecosystem around public, royalty-free and implementation-driven software platform standards that will ease the development of new Smart Applications in multiple sectors”. This community dedicated to expanding the technology (the FIWARE platform), while at the same time helping to build a sustainable FIWARE ecosystem over time.

Bettair is proud to be a FIWARE powered solution, contributing to the success and growth of Smart Cities around the world. We will be presenting Bettair at the FIWARE stand (Pavilion 2 Stand B-231) alongside the other innovative Smart City solutions “Powered by FIWARE” at the Smart City Expo World Congress, November 14th-16th at Fira de Barcelona Gran Via.


Bettair will be presented as part of SCEWC 2017 Call for Solutions

The Call for Solutions looks for cutting-edge smart city solutions to showcase at Smart City Expo World Congress Call.

Thanks to our innovative and disruptive technology, Bettair, Ateknea Solutions was selected to be part of the Call for Solutions stand at this year’s SCEWC here in Barcelona.

Bettair is a novel smart city technology that provides a highly efficient and large-scale pollution mapping tool that is low-cost, scalable, flexible and adaptable to any city. It provides them with the insights and information they need to better understand and mitigate pollution.

This disruptive technology is based on accurate low-cost gas sensors that use advanced data post-processing techniques, to provide pollution measuring with an accuracy that is very close to that of traditional and more expensive equipment but for a fraction of the price. In fact, Bettair’s Pearson Correlation is higher than 0.8 compared to traditional AQM equipment. The high accuracy of our solution compared to traditional solutions allows cities to deploy them on a mass scale, creating a dense sensor grid that is able to monitor the entire city at a reasonable price. Bettair also offers cities custom visualization tools to visualize the information gathered from the sensors in a user-friendly and intelligent way. The Air Quality Index (AQI) is calculated using the pollution data collected and presented with the latest GIS visualization tools, all of which is adaptable to the requirements of each city. The information gathered allows cities to create appropriate urban plans for improving air quality and helps them to make better, smarter decisions to mitigate air pollution going forward. The technology has been tested in 11 different countries including Spain, Germany, Belgium, Ireland, Norway, Austria, Serbia, Israel, Slovenia, Czech Republic, and the US.

Come see Bettair in action at the Smart City Expo World Congress, Nov. 14th, 15th and 16th at the Fira de Barcelona Gran Via. You can find us in The Village along with Call for Solutions as well at Pavilion 2 stand D-401 and stand B-231.
