What is a smart city?

Reducing traffic congestion is a major challenge for communities. Measuring congestion is key to designing multimodal transport in the future. Solutions such as adaptive traffic lights help regulate traffic in real time.

Smart lighting saves a lot of energy and makes people feel safer.

With accurate and up-to-date data, parking is optimized and finding vacant spaces is made easier for citizens and visitors.

The IoT helps optimize waste collection and management.

Connected, self-sustaining scientific weather equipment provides complete and accurate data for your city (precipitation, air quality, etc.).

Smart video enhances the safety of citizens by triggering instant alerts when suspicious activities are detected. The smart city is also the key to predicting natural hazards, which improves protection of its inhabitants, and also its assets and economic activities.

The IoT is an alternative to physical and time-consuming monitoring through automatic location and immediate detection of any malfunction or misuse.

Asset, vehicle or individual tracking solutions enable effective coordination of your resources. With automatic localization and immediate detection, the tracking platform provides an overview of your operations and facilitates their management (e.g., maintenance or disinfection operations management).

Water meters control water consumption and distribution at all times. With real-time alerts, you can quickly access data and reduce risk.
