Innovative GIS solution for road maintenance
ENBW INNOVATIONS: VIALYTICS, PARCONOMY AND SMIGHT
GIS solution revolutionises road maintenance – EnBW presents innovations at SMART CITY SOLUTIONS 2019
When bin lorries in future fix potholes while doing their rounds, this may be a sign that local authorities were at SMART CITY SOLUTIONS and found out about vialytics, an innovation from energy supplier EnBW. A smartphone on the windscreen takes pictures while the lorry is on the move, vialytics automatically analyses the state of the road and makes available the data collected, regardless of whether roads are deliberately driven on or whether the pictures are taken on journeys that are already scheduled.
vialytics is one smart solution for cities and local authorities that EnBW is using to showcase in September in Stuttgart – but it isn’t the only one.
With Parconomy, the energy supplier has also addressed the issue of parking: An Open Parking System organizes access to parking garages for car drivers and cashes the parking process in the background. At the same time, value-added services such as charging electric vehicles can be booked and billed with the parking process. With SMIGHT, EnBW also offers a flexible and modular solution for traffic management. Without any civil engineering work, traffic sensors are installed on existing street lamps and real-time data on the traffic situation is recorded. Alternative routes can then be displayed via guide signs.
vialytics, Parconomy and SMIGHT are just some of the highlights of SMART CITY SOLUTIONS 2019 (17 – 19 September 2019, Messe Stuttgart), where many more exhibitors will be presenting their innovations to visitors.
