Kista Science City wins international recognition
Kista Science City, using Appear´s context-aware software infrastructure, awarded best-practice for Technology Innovation at Digital Cities Convention 2006
Stockholm 14 December 2006 - The Wireless Internet Institute has awarded Kista Science City´s Mobile and Broadband Showcase the best practice award for Technology Innovation at the prestigious W2i Digital Cities Convention in Philadelphia. Winners were selected according to their exemplary efforts in realizing the promise of broadband-wireless solutions for their communities.
Kista Mobile and Broadband Showcase, using Appear´s context-aware software infrastructure, demonstrates the benefits of intelligent mobile solutions to consumers and employees in Kista´s Shopping Mall. Context-awareness means that information is intelligently distributed to the right person at the right time in the right context. For example, maintenance workers in the shopping mall have the possibility to receive specific task notifications, whilst retailers can receive sales information. An important application is the security alert that can instantly inform employees of theft or potential dangers to the public. Consumers can also receive information on the latest product offers, restaurants and entertainment within the mall. Contributing to Stockholm´s reputation as the IT capital of Europe, the solution in Kista Science City can provide a platform for intelligent mobile solutions for local governments in other European cities.
"The award is proof of how innovative mobile technologies, such as Appear´s context-aware software platform, can help to create truly intelligent mobile environments, particularly in the retail sector
. This international recognition inspires us to strive even harder to remain the leader in our use of technology," says Tomas Bennich, project leader for Kista Mobile and Broadband Showcase.
