Smart Agora can be used in a broad spectrum of applications that include the following: crowd-sensing, gamification, citizen science, collective decision-making, governance, participatory budgeting and policy-making and other. Citizens, scientists, policy-makers and other actors can make use of Smart Agora. A few examples are given below:
Crowd-sensing of bus and tram stations can reveal important information about arrival delays, available capacity of vehicles, traffic congestion and other.
Crowd-sensing the factors that result in accidents in different locations, for instance, traffic, light conditions, bike lanes, etc.

Crowd-sensing the available capacity and hygiene of public waste bins to orchestrate more effective waste collection strategies.
Smart Agora can be also used to perform a rigorous social experiment in public space that has augmented realism compared to experiments conducted in the lab. It aspires to promote new novel experimental design approaches for science.
