The Zhaga Consortium is launching a new awards program, the global Zhaga Smart City Sensor Awards, to address the needs of many cities that have installed Zhaga-D4i certified streetlights. The awards encourage and recognize excellence in smart city sensors that can be installed on streetlights using the Zhaga Book 18 standard and are suitable for Zhaga-D4i certification.
The awards are open to sensor manufacturers as well as universities and students. The Zhaga Smart City Sensor Awards will promote and celebrate innovations in this smart city revolution and Zhaga invites manufacturers, innovators and academics/students to enter.
All submissions must be received at info@Zhagastandard.org by 17:00 (Amsterdam time UTC+1:00), on 3 March 2023
There is no cost to enter
Winners will be announced in April 2023
