Public lighting represents, together with the real estate assets, the main component in the rationalization of the funds, energy efficiency and territory enhancement.
A modern and efficient lighting network has the potential to have a substantial role for what concerns the process of transition towards a smart city model. All of this is possible by supporting the supply of digital urban services and taking advantage of the characteristics of each territory which in order to create a strategic infrastructural network.
In concomitance with the renovation of public lighting, all the surrounding area could be modernized, by substituting or installing hi-tech furniture realized with the requirements and needs of each area in mind.
The goal is to work on the urban energy renewal, in order to develop urban infrastructure which is integrated, innovation, sustainable and at the service of citizens and tourists. It calls for the installation of smart furniture to support the development of Smart City Infrastructure and of the services connected to the Internet of Things (IoT).
Services of added value
The transformation of public lighting networks and of smart urban furniture, with the goal of their diffusion on the territory, has the potential of creating advanced and innovative infrastructure, at manageable prices, which is able to gather data and support the supply of digital services of added value.
The suggested technological solutions, are integrated in a all-in-one platform called Urbanvision, which is modular and scalable. The complexity of these challenges require all information to be connected and archived on efficient digital systems, so that they can be easily sourced, remotely accessed, updated and exchanged.
The gathering of necessary data for each service and their appropriate processing, by respecting privacy regulations, are the vital force of a Smart City.
The integration and coordination of all elements generate the real value of a smart city.
Furthermore, a data processing practice that is spread a cross all territory reduces the unnecessary data flow and the analysis power of data centers.
Gathered data of smart infrastructure can be further integrated with collected data from operating systems, in order to offer broad spectrum innovative services for citizens and tourists.
