Meer (smart redirect optimization)

Based on data from the HT network, a module will be developed as part of the overall Big Data application, which would relate to the direction of arrival / departure of visitors to a specific location / defined point; as well as the speed of movement of those same visitors. In this way, it is possible to show from which direction the visitors are coming to a specific location, and accordingly the traffic network optimization, additional promotional and marketing activities on more busy routes can be accessed, and the like. In addition to the directions, it will be possible to recognize the time of day when the inflow of visitors from certain directions is highest, which certainly provides an additional option for optimizing the traffic network for the purpose of improving the flow from the most frequent destinations in peek days (or nights).

Also, within this module it will be possible to define the speed of movement of visitors to a specific location. Defining speed is important in the context of separating car-based visitors from those walking to a specific location - this information may also be relevant in optimizing traffic infrastructure, as well as in promotional and marketing terms in order to tailor the offer to the more populous visitor population (whether it be pedestrians, or visitors moving in vehicles). Also, it will be possible to more accurately track the number of people in a particular location - those visitors who moved at a higher speed certainly stayed less time in the location.


Donte (Site Attendance Statistics)

Donte as a module of the overall solution will refer to a report on the type of visitors to a specific location over a period of time (hour, day, week, month). Visitor type implies demographic distribution of visitors (age, gender, country from which the visitor comes from a tourist, postal code if a visitor from the Republic of Croatia), length of stay at a location, number of people at a location in a particular period. This report can also be very useful in terms of optimizing the transportation network near a specific location; as well as in terms of organizing various events at a specific location.


Teddy (virtual geographic view of users)

Teddy presents a visual representation of the concentration of people in the wider area and their migration, based on data from the HT network. Teddy will allow you to view different demographics in a specific area for different time periods, with the ability to track the concentration and migration on an hourly basis for a defined area. Teddy will serve a wider view of the area, while a more specific location report will require a location scoring module to be launched.

Teddy's functionality allows the end user to view the intensity of the user's movement on the map (territory of the Republic of Croatia) with selected parameters with which the data can be filtered.

The Teddy filter will have the following parameters:

• time period (on selected day, yesterday, week, month, interval of two selected dates)

• gender (M, F, all)

• age (expressed in intervals, all)

• user type (business, private, all)

• hour of the day (if not selected, daily aggregations are displayed


Picolus (high precision of user position for Teddy system)

In addition to the location scoring module, it is also envisaged to evaluate the location using the so-called location scoring module. pico cells, which would provide maximum precision in terms of the number of people at a particular location, at the smallest possible granulation of 5-10 minutes, but for microlocation, up to 50-100 meters in radius. In this way, specific sites could be evaluated to the extent that reports also show visitors who stayed on the site for a very short period of time, thus making this module the most accurate possible site evaluation report. Pico cells can be moved from location to location, so the system will be able to manage their locations and settings. The settings refer to the range and position of the cells implying the location.




The Smart Lifestyle area covers projects related to improving the quality of life. The main aim is about improving the health culture and quality of health of all age groups.

City Smart View

The system provides a display on the LCD screens of bus stations, booths, etc. about the current state of all smart gadget systems and applications that are connected.

The idea behind this view is to actually explore all the technical functionality for presenting information and display it on the LCDs of smart booths and other similar information desks in the jurisdiction of the city, so that the wider audience can see the data collected and processed within Smart City CEKOM Project River. As part of the development of the display itself, it will be predefined which displays will be visible, and a sequence will be created to plan the displays to be displayed on the LCDs themselves.

Data Driven Destination Management System Creating and maintaining a central repository of content and destination information, automatic use of content across multiple communication channels / resources for guests at the destination, and for the purpose of promoting and selling the destination



The Smart Governance area contains projects that make public authority transparent and make public and social services accessible to citizens. The above is a prerequisite for educating management employees (strengthening administrative capacity). However, the availability of different databases and the creation of an information service for communication with citizens are also important. These are projects that encourage citizen participation in decision-making and involve citizens in the process of drafting strategies, plans and other documents relevant to the local community.
