The Super CampusThe campus works as a “living lab" structured in 9 areas.

The Super Campus

The Brazilian Government started an investment campaign in 2018 to support the research of possibilities of implementations of IoT applications. This way, they want to lead the country into an economically strong and sustainable future. Three years before, a smart campus had already been put into place in the city of Sorocaba in the university Faculdade de Engenhaira de Sorocaba (FACENS). On the campus the smart city is simulated: mobility and safety, energy, environment – these are just some aspects in which IoT-based applications in communal living are to be developed.
