A data-driven city

Low-cost IoT sensor networks for the widespread collection of data about your city

Data for efficient decision making

We want to change the way we look at collecting data about cities or companies, simply, low-cost, universally and ethically. Machine data collection on the quality of life in cities and towns.

We are CITIQ, a higher IQ of any city.

At ŠKODA AUTO, we have been monitoring the occupancy of large parking lots without barriers using dozens of sensors for 5 years, and we are more accurate than a camera.

City laboratory

A unique urban sensory network of traffic and climate phenomena that serves for data-driven parking policy and traffic safety, spatial planning addressing climate change and a higher quality of life in the city. It provides open data in the European DATEX II format and is thus the basis for the creation of new tools of the digital economy.

It consists of a virtual fence of traffic magnetometers that enable unique monitoring of the traffic "breathing" of the city, supplemented by a network of weather stations and specially developed surface temperature sensors. The climatic part of the sensor network enables monitoring of heat islands and overheating of public spaces as well as soil freezing and frost prediction. It serves for future higher efficiency of public services and automation of decision-making. It is thus suitable for the developer's preparation of a new construction. It can also be extended with modules for remote readings of heat, gas and electricity consumption or for monitoring the public lighting network.

The biggest advantages of the city laboratory are the low price, the simplicity of deployment in the order of a few months, and the fact that it does not require a building permit.

Remote readings

Monitoring of all grids of various product pipelines is the basis for more efficient use of resources and grid management. Remote readings of energy, heat, gas, water or monitoring the status of their grids are the foundations of any digitization and a prerequisite for the use of big data.


The system of remote readings is based on a low-cost and intervention-free method of reading through video detection, which can be applied to all types of already installed measuring devices. In remote monitoring of public lighting, long-term current drop monitoring is used for operators.

The automatic parking lot occupancy monitoring system serves as technological support for the parking policy, but also as a source of information for end users. It answers the questions of what is the appropriate capacity of parking areas, the appropriate price of parking fees, when and where is the traffic rush hour, etc. and how to use already existing areas, e.g. of private owners, to offer parking to residents instead of building new parking garages.


Using several sensors located at the entrance and exit of parking lots, the system can replace more demanding camera systems or systems with sensors at each parking spot and is the cheapest way to digitize parking.

Thanks to the low price and small number of sensors, our unique solution is able to provide every city or municipality with extensive information about the occupancy of parking areas.

Digital traffic census

Traffic counting is still usually carried out manually, at long intervals (about once every 5 years on national level) and in short periods of time (within a few days), which do not capture the real form of the traffic flow (significant events, rush hours, effects of the pandemic), and its results depend on the discipline and fatigue of the hired human counters.


An automatic traffic counting system using a sensor network of battery-powered low-cost IoT magnetometers provides count, length, and speed data every 5 minutes. Such a system enables the modeling of traffic, logistics, road closures and works, traffic safety or road management.

The advantage of our solution is the speed of installation, low price, no GDPR, no building permit and no other elements on the infrastructure. Everything can be handled by one device per lane, which is unique in the world .


The system is already used in 500 Slovak and 70 Czech municipalities. It is the basis for the Urban Digital Ecosystem. It integrates a city Internet of Things network based on LoRa communication technology, which can collect data from Internet of Things (IoT) sensors, and an automatically commanded municipal radio, which can be used to control the existing network of municipal radio detectors.


Digitizes public radio announcements and warning signals (siren test, chemical threat, pandemic measures, smog situation or approaching flood/tornado) and publishes them for citizens on the web, via SMS or email. The integrated IoT city network brings the possibility to understand and respond to emerging situations in a timely manner, thus minimizing, preventing or eliminating service outages or damage to the property of citizens or the municipality.

Frost forecast

A system that automatically predicts the occurrence of icing and provides this information to maintenance personnel. The system consists of a whole range of IoT sensors of different nature: surface temperature sensors, weather stations, pyranometer and rain gauges.


Using special evaluation algorithms, the system can predict the occurrence of icing 2 hours before the event, record such an event in the management system and send a notification to the maintenance staff via SMS or email. For administrators, it thus represents an automated record of frost occurrences.

Climate change, microclimate and heat islands

Digitizing the impacts of climate change and the quality of the urban microclimate is a basic prerequisite for responsible development. Being able to correctly set the city's requirements towards developers taking into account the quality of the environment helps to correctly design public space, the typology of greenery, blue-green infrastructure or respect for hygiene limits. This is also relevant to the working environment on company premises.


Using a network of various sensors (rain, light, air temperature and humidity or surface temperatures), the system enables long-term monitoring of climatic phenomena in specific locations and comparisons among them. In this way, intuitive planning of healthy public environments can be achieved and the impacts of climate change can be mitigated.

We are proud that we were able to develop an unprecedented low-cost sensor for the temperature of the surface of the road or pavement, and thus we can monitor the effects of climate change in a wider area.


We use the IQRF network for robust data collection from the infrastructure, e.g. in transport, the system provides data every 32 seconds.

We use SIGFOX in places where no power supply is available and frequent communication is not required from the system, the limit is one message per 10 minutes and the amount of data sent in a packet.

The LoRa network enables reliable data collection within a radius of 1 km with sufficient detail of the transmitted data.

Communication networks

All sensory devices communicate on a fit-for-purpose communication network; IQRF, SIGFOX or LoRa radio mesh network modules are available.
