The city of tomorrow is already a reality. Thanks to Enel X’s new services for Public Administrations, our cities are becoming smarter, safer and more welcoming than ever.
By taking full advantage of the public lighting infrastructure and using our digital platform, we can offer our clients a wide range of smart city services that integrate information from sensors and video cameras located throughout urban areas and from many sources of Big Data available today. Of course, all of this is achieved in full compliance with privacy legislation.
Video surveillance: to identify events that may compromise the safety of citizens using a system of video cameras and sensors
Connectivity: to provide broad-ranging Internet access using the urban infrastructure for ultrafast fibre optic broadband
Traffic light management: to control traffic light efficiently and respond to changes in pedestrian and traffic flows
Optimisation of mobility flows: to ensure adequate, usable services during specific events or at seasonal peak times
Environmental monitoring: to evaluate the air quality and pollution levels
City Analytics: to plan services based on real demand through the collection, analysis and elaboration of Big Data
Our City Analytics solution in the spotlight
In a world increasingly immersed in the digital transformation, the real challenge is to organise and manage the huge amount of constantly changing data and information available to improve cities on the basis of the real needs of both citizens and Public Administrations.
City Analytics is an Enel X solution that helps plan services on the basis of actual demand through systematic collection, analysis and processing of Big Data.
Through monitoring pedestrian and traffic flows, estimating resident and tourist numbers and creating heat maps of the busiest areas of a city, City Analytics will prove very useful to Public Administrations in:
Making decisions concerning mobility and safety during events and periods when tourist numbers are high
Dynamically organising urban transit on the basis of actual traffic
Optimising the size and location of services and public infrastructure, including defining parking areas, siting e-vehicle charging columns and managing waste collection
