Established by EMSI in 2015, SMARTiLab is a research, development, and innovation laboratory with areas of specialisation including embedded computing, information systems, data analysis, materials, artificial intelligence, connected objects (IoT), energy, mechanics, networks, and systems.
The laboratory is not only a place to create solutions to socio-economic challenges but a platform for the development of high-level research. As such, SMARTiLab is tasked with increasing the visibility of scientific research produced by the school, developing unifying projects with Moroccan and international industries, integrating, and involving talented students in research and development and innovation projects; and producing patents of invention.
SmartiLab offers several services, products, and applications to its customers.
SmartiLab offers a complete range of inventions for a better life. This commitment also fuels our ambition to be recognized as a socially responsible laboratory capable of meeting the challenges of tomorrow.
The SMARTiLab team of professors, scientists, academics, and doctors have a vast portfolio of expertise in topics as varied as energy efficient construction, solutions for nonlinear elliptic problems, biomedicine and biosciences, spectral-classification energy optimisation, hybrid energy production systems and many more subjects. The application of research in creating prototypes has seen many projects lead to full implementation, including open source data platforms for citizens, the ‘Wind Energy Project’, SMARTyPARK, AquaSMART, Senstenna and many more.

At SMARTiLab, technological innovation and scientific research are at the service of the development of a world where it is good to live, alone and in community.
In cities that are increasingly connected and congested, implementing a smart and efficient city management policy is a crucial step to take. Moreover, according to the recommendations of major companies dealing with smart cities, the issue of transport and mobility is a key criterion.
In this context, SMARTiLab has raised the issue of urban parking as a major challenge facing any smart city.
