The focus of this prototyping before April 2019 will be in the field of 3D modelling of Sabadell, in order to geoposition relevant real-time and static data of the city on this 3D model. During the on-site visit, the students contrasted their ideas with municipal officers from the police, geographic information system (GIS) and energy departments, as well as with other public and private operators in the field of GIS and sensoring. Their proposal on 3D modelling (called “MOD3L”) was designated as one of the finalists of the City of Sabadell’s Coinnovem contest on the 6th November.
