Leading multinationals, SMEs and research and innovation centres showcased a range of technologies that are being developed, piloted and scaled in Dublin and Ireland. Technology giants such as Dell, Microsoft, Intel, Ericsson, IBM and Cisco showed their latest smart city innovations, many of which are being piloted or innovated in Dublin. A wide range of start-ups and SMEs also demonstrated the capability to drive new innovations in areas like low cost bicycle theft tracking, air quality monitoring, wearables, smart parking and low cost flood monitoring.
