Intelligent urban mobility and smart parking are part of one and the same ecosystem — one cannot thrive without the other. Modern cities, overwhelmed by personal vehicles, are constantly suffering from a lack of available parking spots. The solution? An integrated transit and parking system that can help reduce traffic and provide automated management of parking spots so that drivers who need them can actually find them.

A battle against the clock: the importance of finding a parking spot easily

It’s not only frustration that stems from dysfunctional parking systems. Each minute spent cruising around the block to find that elusive (if available at all) parking spot means more air pollution. …

What if city lighting poles could serve not one but ten functions? What if a single lighting pole could incorporate connectivity modules, a charging station, air quality sensor, traffic management sensor, CCTV camera, information board, an emergency communications centre? It’s not a beautifully drawn utopia, it’s currently happening! With smart lighting poles already being incorporated across the globe and 5G on its way, cities will become smarter more quickly. Today, we’ll give you a virtual tour of the amazing tech development called smart lighting poles — follow us!

How did it all begin?

The need for automated lighting poles was what laid the foundation of…

We know that this article comes at a time when travel is the last thing on people’s minds. Yet, tourism will return and cities need to be ready for it. Only time will tell whether there will be a significant disruption in the way people travel, but it’s a good idea for city management to have a few tricks up their sleeve to enhance the long-awaited travel experience. We have an idea, and we bet you’ll love it!

Travel post-COVID-19: the uncertainties

It’s been a year of turmoil in the travel industry. As many planned trips abroad got postponed indefinitely while others fell through…

Growing population, demands for more modern solutions in the public transit domain, advances in technology that facilitate the processes involved in the sector — all these and many more contribute to the explosive growth in the global public transit market forecast for the next few years. The Asia Pacific region, followed by Europe, are the trail-blazers in innovation and improvement of their infrastructures, led by the desire to provide better services and curb CO2 emissions in larger cities. What will public transit look like in 2024? Let’s take a look!

Although smart solutions have already been implemented in many cities, it seems that not many people notice their existence. One might argue that this is the whole point — to improve life in an unobtrusive way. But since future developments often rely on public approval before they’re executed, it’s important to know and communicate the benefits of smart solutions to citizens. Especially if success is dependent on mass adoption of a certain technology!

Accumulating the critical mass for smart to work

A smart city is one that deploys a network of IoT sensors and apps which communicate via a high-speed connection. In order for the gathered information and…

Waste management is one of the aspects of city life most people don’t notice at all — but when something goes wrong, the consequences are quite gruesome and city management has to act quickly to avoid a crisis. The intricate and quite often not very well optimised system for waste collection and disposal has potential weak links. As cities grow, urban population and consumption increases which means more garbage being handled by ineffective processes, causing a host of environmental and social challenges. Heaps of waste and overflowing bins are only the beginning of what might even become a health crisis…

A simple definition of a smart city will go like this: a city that uses IoT (Internet of Things) sensors to gather information and then acts upon that information to manage city assets and resources more efficiently. This simple and straight-forward concept came to fruition as modern technology advanced in the past couple of decades. The dream of a modern city where crucial decisions concerning everyday life are taken after careful examination of a data stream is no longer something from the field of sci-fi. Cities all over the globe are implementing different intelligent technologies in a bid to overcome…

The talk about smart cities is big right now — accelerated by the COVID-19 threat, it has reached far-flung corners of the Earth. Small and mid-sized cities are also beginning to consider the move towards smart technologies, while the rapidly growing urbanization is the driving force behind the digital transformation of larger cities. How does city management decide what technologies to implement first? What are the imminent needs of a city and how do we tackle them in order to create a functioning smart ecosystem instead of a fragmented one? Let’s find out!

Digital citizenship is an integral part of the whole paradigm of being a citizen in the 21th century, with all of the rights that it affords us to gain. With the development of information technology and the future leap to ultra-fast 5G networks, the integration of the individual within this system becomes crucial so that he can fully engage not only socially, but also with the government’s institutions (both local and national) and the broader political and societal processes.

The technology we use to construct our digital future is here and is being implemented all over the world with the…
