SPEAKER @ INNOVATION SUMMIT 2016 IN PARIS
On 14th June was held in Paris the INNOVATION SUMMIT 2016 organized by the canadian multinational corporation Sierra Wireless; it is an international event organized annually to address, together with operators and users, the themes of technological innovation to enhance the daily experience of life.
Sierra has invited a.p.systems as testimonial of the innovation that is hitting the territory and sees cities, in many parts of the world, turn into the so-called Smart City.
In fact, this year the focus was on the Internet of Things and Smart City and our product manager, Davide Bassetto, provided an overview of the potential of this sector in which a.p.systems is providing long since many solutions that are widely appreciated both by customers and citizenship.
At the round table entitled "Smart City Round Table session" D.Bassetto has also issued guidance on the integrated use of Linux-based technology of Sierra and gave a glimpse of the results obtained.
Today, in fact, more than 100,000 streetlights of Italian roads are managed by the smart lighting platform designed by a.p.systems; cities, provincial capitals but also modestly sized municipalities are benefiting from the use of such technologies, thanks to which they have achieved a twofold result:
- huge improvements in energy efficiency of streetlighting, with a lower fuel consumption by more than 40%
- exploitation of the streetlighting network as infrastructure to provide Smart City services.
