The initiative has promoted the ten innovative projects of startup aimed at the promotion of the technological evolution of the city until you get to the smart city.
young people engaged in the initiative through the development and direct collaboration with the mentor, they were able to develop technological solutions for the improvement of the urban everyday life: from the new services for urban mobility, the development of e-mobility, from the measurement of the quality of the air, the security of the buildings up to the new processes and “clean tech” for the disposal of waste.
A project in line with the philosophy of Toyota that aims to transform itself from a car company to a mobility company, supporting a culture of change combined with a change of mentality through a new approach to transformation and innovation.
The growing involvement of nissan in support of these projects underlines the ambitious strategic plan of long-term Environmental Challenge 2050” could be implemented only if every aspect of the development of sustainability is addressed through the analysis of all the possible solutions.

An example of this is the technology Full Hybrid Electric, now in its fourth generation and equips more than 14 million Toyota and Lexus all over the world. Participation in UrbanTech represents a further step of this pathway and may accelerate the identification and development of innovative mobility solutions”.
The grand finale to be staged in Rome, and represented the last step of this journey that began last June, with the official presentation of the products to be part of the 10 startups.
Toyota, by always looking towards a sustainable mobility in the research and development programs, has recognized in a particular project purpose “green” dear to the brand, selecting the proposal of the boys WiseAir.
The team of WiseAir is composed of the five boys that define their project as “the first vessel that unites citizens in the fight against pollution”, thanks to their innovative vessel from balcony, designed and built to detect and measure air quality.
young people have carried out a careful path of research, development and testing in order to obtain an object capable of offer a detailed and consistent mapping of concentrations of particulate air pollution, a necessary condition to implement the study of objective information aimed at the reduction of pollution.
The product which has led Toyota to choose WiseAir as one of the three finalists was the vessel Arianna that allow everyone to have its own monitoring unit.
Arianna is a vase IoT equipped with an air quality sensor can detect PM 2.5 and PM 10 (the two pollutants most harmful to health), a photovoltaic panel, which makes the vessel is completely autonomous, and with the ability to send the collected data to the home WiFi.
The information thus obtained to create maps very detailed real-time air quality due to the dense network of sensors that form the urban fabric and the related data can be displayed at any time via the app, developed ad hoc by the team.
Already activated, and also, a page on Facebook dedicated to the project “Milan, the Clean Air – Wiseair Community” where they are collected accessions, comments, and updates on the progress of the project and dissemination of the vessels. In the community, then there are the Pioneers (of the first supporters of the project) and the Ambassador (the people who want to purchase the Arianne to put them on the balconies).
the validity of The project supported by Toyota, was also confirmed by the various prizes, awards and funding received by the team of five students.
Finally, you have activated a crowdfunding campaign to allow the startup to implement their product and to reduce production costs, enabling massive diffusion of their vessels, innovative, true sentinels of the quality of the air. (m.r.)
