Based in Manchester, CityVerve is a consortium of 20 partners led by Manchester City Council and funded by Innovate UK and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. It aims to provide a step change to how cities use the internet of things to deliver smarter services and create a real-life blueprint for smart cities worldwide.

There was chosen three businesses to help make the city smarter. The companies are the following - Retail Sensing, a Manchester-based people-counting and data collection provider; Tracsis, a leading provider of transport survey and data-capture services to the public and private sectors across the UK; and Apadmi, an award-winning UK mobile technology provider in Manchester. Each company submitted an application outlining the potential of their technology through the implementation of small-scale demonstration pilots, which address challenges identified in the council’s City Centre Review.
