    Smart Street Lights - Cologne

    Use of LED adaptive lights: using radar sensors to dim and brighten the light depending on traffic. Brought over 70% saving vs. traditional streetlights. Also installed a WiFi mesh for communication, environmental sensors and re-used the radar sensors to measure traffic flow. The latter two are linked to the traffic lights which will change based on the [ui!] UrbanPulse parameters.

  • Zero Energy District - Innsbruck

    Zero Energy District - Innsbruck

    Smart energy district management through smart meters and integration with the utility provider’s grid management system to achieve at least 40% primary energy savings and increase the share of renewables by at least 20%. Over 1m sq ft of the city will be retrofitted with an optimized electricity grid and solutions of district heating and cooling. UrbanPulse is used to integrate the smart meter technologies (direct and hybrid sensing solutions).

    Environmental Sensing - Wiesloch

    Often combined with smart streetlights, the sensors can be configures as needed to measure : noise, temperature, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Nitro dioxide (NO2), Ozones, Hydrocarbons (VOC), Oxygen (O2), Carbon Monoxide (CO), and fine particle emissions (PN10). The values are displayed in real time by parameters (i.e. location) on the [ui!] COCKPIT.

    Peer to Peer Energy - Saarlouis

    Integrate the use of renewable energy (i.e. solar, wind, geo-thermal, water) with traditional grid energy to increase resilience and reduce peak loads through peer-to-peer energy sharing model. Through an online marketplace households may buy or sell excess renewable energy generated by their neighbors. While generating and consuming energy locally, the “holon” is off the main grid.

  • Real-Time Traffic Flow - Darmstadt

    Real-Time Traffic Flow - Darmstadt

    Re-use of radar sensors from the smart streetlights, as well as traffic camera and sensor coils in the road, to provide near real time traffic information. The data was used to determine the [ui!] UrbanPulse parameters within which traffic is “normal”. When the flow approaches a threshold, it can trigger an automatic response, such as timing of traffic lights or re-route certain type of traffic etc.

  • eFleet management - Berlin

    eFleet management - Berlin

    Manage and optimize cross-fleet use of electric vehicles for municipal, public and corporate fleets. Fleet usage is optimized for economic efficiency in total cost of ownership. This includes route planning, real time monitoring of charging status and operational data as well as a mobile app to book the vehicle.
