Cities take a step towards the future with iPaviment, an “intelligent” pavement with incredible connection options for citizens. It will be presented internationally at Dubai’s International Building & Construction Show, and will be manufactured in Spain as of June 2012.
This innovative breakthrough will integrate intelligent technology in cities by using sensors, connections and applications that will make citizens’ lives easier. Some of the applications that will become available are, for example:
Analytics iPavement: “Analyzes and interprets statistics on every aspect of the movement of people in cities… everything we wish to know on the use of public spaces, and we never knew how to find out… this will help improve our service to citizens ”
MS-Alert: “Pavements in a poor state of repair, risk of frost, incident alert… all warnings can be programmed such that the street can send us notice to our cellphone or email, or warn public services if necessary ”
Other applications include Via Coupons for product placement in establishments in the area, Via Maps for tourists and non-tourists, including all kinds of options in culture and gastronomy maps, etc.
