Starting from December 4, 2018, the commission for the evaluation of the Torino City Lab proposals is operational. Proposals are evaluated according to the criteria of consistency, feasability, innovation, economic sustainability and potential socio-environmental impact.
The first project admitted to testing is “LAURA – A new way to live the street”, an infomobility system to digitize the signals of the traffic light systems. Through an app, near the intersection, the status of the traffic lights will be displayed on the smartphone display, taking into consideration the position and associating a vocal message and a vibration to each state. The system is able to recognize the flow of data in real time on servers via web for information technology that can be developed in the future.
Torino City Lab is open to any company (Start-ups, SMEs, Social Enterprises, Industry) willing to test innovative solutions at the pre-commercial phase in any domain of the “Smart City”. Read more on www.torinocitylab.it.
