Our field-proven solutions are based on an open urban data platform
as the basis for numerous innovative services.

Based on [ui!] UrbanPulse, sensor and other real-time data from different data sources are collected and processed,
analysed and visualised as the "pulse of the city" in all relevant areas as beneficial data-based services.

[ui!] UrbanPulse

[ui!] UrbanPulse

Open Urban Platform (OUP)

With [ui!] UrbanPulse, a real-time sensor data platform has been developed that follows the vision of an Open Urban Platform, as expressed by the European Innovation Partnership Smart Cities and Communities (EIP) and specified in DIN SPEC 91357.

[ui!] UrbanPulse is based on a highly scaleable architecture for data processing and analysis, with a special connector framework for an easy integration of sensors and other urban management systems.

On the basis of open interfaces, the platform offers integrated access to urban data from different urban areas.

City administrations, companies and citizens can use the data collected, refined with [ui!] UrbanPulse, to optimize their individual decisions and improve their digital services and processes.

[ui!] UrbanPulse


Visualization of information is the basis for the benefits to a city.

A digital city is a very complex subject and affects several areas at once. Here, the possibility to visualize an overall picture is often missing.

[ui!] supports the possibility of identifying the real potential of a Smart City in an urban overview and communicating it to the citizens. 

Various [ui!] COCKPITS with different and individually compiled urban data are available.

Here is an example:

[ui!] Festival COCKPIT

With the [ui!] Festival COCKPIT, which was especially developed for large events, important data such as traffic volume and speed, weather data, parking lot occupancy, visitors, temperature and environmental data, towing operations and much more can be displayed in real-time at a control center.

This gives the responsible people an up-to-date overview at any time and that way they can intervene if necessary.


Street lighting
With more than 20 years of experience, we cover all issues related to street lighting. From simple LED lights, to sensor-based controls and street lighting as a central IoT infrastructure.
Intelligent, situation-oriented systems for increasing public safety with integrated solutions such as emergency call modules, CCTV, audio and image analysis.
Environment and weather
Recording of environmental and weather data according to individual requirements such as: temperature, noise, Co2, ozone, NOX and particulate matter, as well as the determination of the Air Quality Index.
At one glance
Visualization of all collected data on a unique dashboard like the [ui!] COCKPIT.
Usage of calibrated sensors
High quality of the collected data by using professional and calibrated sensors.
Traffic and parking
Real-time analysis of traffic volumes and the utilization of parking areas of any kind, adapted to the existing infrastructure and situation on site.
Transparent data management
The collected data always remains the property of the customer. You decide on the form and scope of use.
Compliance with standards
Compliance with the standards for imHLa according to DIN SPEC 91347.

Real-time traffic information
The [ui!] TRAFFIC APP shows the current traffic situation by means of information provided on the basis of data from an urban traffic control computer. Thus real data is displayed in real-time for the user. Here is an example from Darmstadt:
Traffic light phase prediction as a component of traffic optimization

The analysis and prediction of the switching-commands of traffic lights in real-time, provide new types of information, which, via suitable assistance functions, enable "connected" vehicles to make significantly improved journeys through the city's road network. 
Drivers who do not yet have a vehicle with appropriate assistance functions, receive recommendations for optimal driving behavior via the app [ui!] ECOMAT, which they can install on their smartphone. Further information:

Smart travel with artificial intelligence

Development of a nationwide, intermodal travel option - in order to be able to travel with one ticket and a one-time payment process. This will take into account the various regional and national mobility providers, such as rental bicycles, rental scooters, car-sharing, local transport and even rail or air travel. Further information:

Mobility controllers for disabled people
Digital support for the implementation of an accompanying service in public transport.


Smart City Project Sinfonia

Together with international partners, innovative energy solutions are being developed which serve as a model for the European cities of tomorrow.

Sinfonia is the acronym for "Smart INitiative of cities Fully cOmmitted to iNvest In Advanced large-scaled energy solutions."

The focus is on the energetic renovation of buildings, the expansion of the district heating network and the increased use of regional and renewable energy sources.

The project is directly aimed at the scaleability and transferability of the solutions implemented in pilot districts. At the core is the demonstration of technical measures and a great proximity to applications.

With the [ui!] COCKPIT, residents have access to all the digital information available about their apartment. The graphic visualization helps you to understand what is going on in your apartment. A concrete example are parameters, such as room temperature and humidity, which provide an indication for the prevention of mold. Residents can thus react to these indicators at an early stage and instead of when mold is already visible.

Smart Home
The reading of individual consumption data of your own household on your tablets. For this purpose, appropriate sensors are installed and tablets with necessary software are provided.

Questions & Answers


Who owns the data?
Data sovereignty belongs to the city or region, which decides which data is passed on to which party of interest, free of charge or for a fee.
Open Urban Platform = Open3

Open Source, Open API & Open Platform Standard.

The open standard of the Open Urban Data Platform supports numerous suppliers of sensor manufacturers of different kinds to collect their data centrally on one platform - to process them and then make them available for further use. The connectors required here can be created by customers themselves free of charge or provided for a small fee by [ui!].

Open Standard = Open Source = Free of charge?
Although there are free open source solutions, which have to be adapted by IT experts in a very time-consuming process, the software is not free of charge.
These costs should not be neglected.
Can our city afford this?
By passing on certain data to third parties, funds can be raised which will pay back the investment in the shortest possible time.


How does the [ui!] UrbanPulse work?
The [ui!] UrbanPulse data platform uses existing sensor data, for example from traffic lights, intelligent lighting, parking systems and much more. The data is collected, processed, analysed and prepared for further use by means of connectors. This can be a visualisation by means of [ui!] COCKPIT for the transparency of urban data use towards the citizens as well as. For example, as an annotated road map with traffic information via a web server. In real time - twice as fast as conventional solutions and without a complicated integration process.
What about data security?
Only non-personalized data is collected in the [ui!] UrbanPulse and securely stored on European servers.
Who receives the source code?
The source code belongs to your city or region. In the event that we no longer support you, you will own the source code.

[ui!] Group

How long has [ui!] been around?
[ui!] was founded in 2012 to support cities in their efforts to jointly develop innovative concepts and solutions in the sense of a Smart City and to use them in a meaningful way.
What does [ui!] stand for?

[ui!] stands for innovation - quality - safety - experience - trust. The term [ui!] is an abbreviation for [ui!] Urban Software Institute.

Where can I find [ui]?
The [ui!] Group has five locations in Germany in Berlin, Chemnitz, Darmstadt, Wiesloch and Munich. In addition to the German branches and international subsidiaries in Brisbane (Australia/New Zealand), Budapest (Hungary), Oxford (UK) and New York (USA), there is also the [ui!] Urban Software Institute, the [ui!] Urban Lighting Innovations and the [ui!] Urben Mobility Innovations.
Can I also join the [ui!] TEAM?
Of course - we are looking forward to all applications from people who enjoy working with innovative products and solutions and need their freedom. You can find our current open positions under Jobs.
