Fujisawa surfboard and smiley Coupon field trials have been presented on 27th May in Kamakura station in presence of Enoshima Electric Railway manager, one of the main ClouT stakeholder together with Fujisawa Smart Development Town.

Information from Santander city has been also provided on the dashboard, thus demonstrating the replicability of the ClouT technology in another city thanks to ClouT sensorized data. Besides the purpose of the ClouT review meeting, displaying information from another city could also foster friendship between citizens and visitors of both cities.
