In the state of Geneva, the city of Carouge is seen as the smart city pioneer. Carouge is recognized as "la Cité de l’énergie" due to its efforts to wisely use energy resources and following sustainable actions for the environment. Now the city takes action for tackling one more milestone vis-à-vis UN's sustainable development goals: water resources.

Today, we are looking into a world where Smart Cities are becoming more common in the public discussion. They can provide several benefits for its citizens, such as intelligent mobility systems or energy grids or simple things like the digitalization for the application of a new car licence and so on. In the NAIADES project we are trying to provide these benefits to an unseen, but essential infrastructure: the local water infrastructure with all its pipelines, pumps and uses such as flowerbeds, drinking water, etc.
