“The use of IoT technologies is a common trend in the world’s smart cities. Moscow has been using IoT for several years in medicine, housing and communal services, ecology and other industries. This is especially facilitated by the well-developed communications infrastructure, which makes it possible to quickly transfer information from various devices throughout the capital. The Internet of Things makes it possible to collect information from various city sensors in an automated mode, and subsequent analytics helps city services to quickly make management decisions, which makes the capital even more comfortable for life, ”said the Minister of Government, Head

Department of Information Technologies of Moscow Edward Lysenko.

Site of the state environmental budgetary institution Mosekomonitoring Is an official and reliable source of information on the state of the air in Moscow. Real-time data is available around the clock to any user – both professionals (ecologists, public organizations and the world community) and city residents.

“Moscow has fully realized the constitutional right of residents to information about the quality of the environment. And for these purposes, the most advanced international practices are used to provide the population and authorities with data on the state of the environment. Thanks to the use of automated methods of monitoring and data collection, the city of Moscow is the first and only one of all constituent entities of the Russian Federation, which, in accordance with the Aarhus Convention on Information, provides citizens with data by air in real time, without hiding anything. All information is open to citizens. The data is available online on the Mosecomonitoring website in real time, “said the head

Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection of the City of Moscow Anton Kulbachevsky.

The data on the portal is updated every hour. Information on pollutants comes from 56 automatic atmospheric control stations in Moscow. For the convenience of users, the information is displayed in the form of an interactive map. The site also provides online broadcasts from CCTV cameras for the most interesting events in the field of Moscow ecology. In addition, you can take part in interactive polls. More than eight thousand users visit the site every month.

Moscow was the first Russian region to start publishing ambient air monitoring data online in the public domain. In terms of efficiency, volume and list of indicators, it corresponds to the best international practices implemented in the largest cities of the world: London, Paris, New York and others. The demand for environmental monitoring is growing every year, the openness of this data in Moscow is used by domestic and foreign expert organizations to create their own Internet resources and mobile applications for air pollution.

In 2020, the Mosecomonitoring website was included in the shortlist of the award The DADI Awards in the category “Non-profit projects and charity”, and in 2021 – in the short list of the Smart Cities Council Readiness Challenge competition.

Another project of the Moscow Government – the EMIAS.INFO mobile application – was highly appraised by the IoT Global Awards jury in the Health and Wearable Devices nomination. Users have full access to information about their health in the “Medical record” section. There you can also read online the protocols of doctors’ examinations, the results of laboratory tests, CT, MRI, fluorography and other instrumental studies, hospital discharges, the history of vaccinations, including those of your children. Medical documents from the application can be downloaded and sent by e-mail or via messengers, as well as independently added to the medical record.

The application allows you to make an appointment with a doctor, laboratory tests and referral procedures, view appointments to specialists, cancel and reschedule them. Users can set up notifications for upcoming doctor visits so they don’t forget about an appointment, as well as add the event to their calendar.

“The application has become especially relevant during a pandemic. An affordable and easy-to-use tool helps users to reduce the number of additional visits to medical facilities and reduce the likelihood of infection spread. Millions of Muscovites now use electronic medical records and get access to their medical data directly from their phones in the EMIAS.INFO application. Recognition at the international level confirms its usefulness and relevance, “- said the deputy head

Department of Health of the city of Moscow Ilya Tyrov.
