Sustainable development of metropolitan areas requires an integrated approach based on new technologies, solutions, and services. The “online” use of available resources allows us to improve economic efficiency along with social, cultural, and urban development.
Integrated telecommunications networks, connectivity tools for regional sensors: these allow us to monitor natural gas and water usage, to manage heat and energy usage in buildings, to monitor car park occupancy levels, or the fill levels of public rubbish bins, but also safety in the city, smart lighting, industrial automation, and so much more.
Our area model is sustainable, intelligent, and competitive. From agriculture to roadway infrastructure and the safety of the same, from monitoring river and storm-sewer capacity to the weather, falling rock, and landslides, from park services, to LED lighting, and finally tourist services, we work hard to make sure the immense natural and cultural heritage we enjoy has a bright future.
The first step toward a “smart city” is expanding the use of innovative, digital, IoT technologies, which allow for the data recorded by sensors to be collected. This is the backdrop for A2A Group's A2A Smart City, which works for the city of tomorrow:
