Sofia, Bulgaria, 16-18 April 2019.
In Inter Expo Center held the traditional international exhibition "Smart Cities".

A wide range of state-of-the-art technologies and applications related to the construction and management of intelligent cities were presented in the days of the event:

  • Energy efficiency;
  • Sustainable development and mobility;
  • Intelligent networks and cloud services;
  • Information management systems;
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
  • ICT in logistics and waste management;
  • Information platforms and the Internet of Things (IoT);
  • Intelligent planning, modeling and urban planning;
  • ICT for social services, e-government, e-learning;
  • Information and communication technologies (ICT) for smart cities.

The main focus of the exhibition was on systems related to environmental protection.
One of the most characteristic features of the city of Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, is the mountain Vitosha, which naturally merges with the city. The mountain and the forest protect, enrich and enrich the ecosystem of Sofia Municipality in an incomparable way.

Without the forests of Vitosha Park, the city would be doomed,
but whether the citizens of Sofia and the guests of the city think about it.

This is the main reason why the members of NCITES for the second consecutive year presented the experience we have gained in building systems for early detection and prevention of forest fires, especially the ASPires-GEO system.

We also made numerous live demos.
We presented the possibilities of our intelligent observation point in Pirin Park, Bansko, Bulgaria.

A frequent topic in conversations with the visitors at the booth was the question: Is it possible to organize a system for monitoring and early prevention of forest fires on the territory of Vitosha Park using the ASPires-GEO system

More information on forest fire prevention and the pilot implementation of the ASPires-GEO system can be found on the project site –
