ELEQ Smart City solutions
ELEQ Smart Multi Connection Box and Application Modules
A smart city is a city that uses advanced technology and data analytics to improve the quality of life for its residents and enhance the sustainability of its infrastructure. Making a city accessible and liveable is an important challenge for the future. How do we shape the energy transition and how do we keep our infrastructure efficient and available? Technology and digitization play a major role in managing this large-scale change. The goal of a ‘Smart City’ is simply to increase the quality of life of its residents and visitors. This requires smart solutions and the right technology. That is what ELEQ offers.
The reuse of existing objects in private and public space is the most sustainable solution and prevents a proliferation of lampposts, communication masts and EV charging stations. Due to their height and existing infrastructure – in combination with smart solutions from ELEQ – light poles are extremely suitable for social tasks such as improving mobility, efficient energy use, health and safety.
One of the key areas of focus for smart cities is transportation. Smart cities use data from sensors and connected devices to optimize traffic flow, reduce congestion, and improve public transportation. This can include intelligent traffic management systems, real-time transit updates, EV charging facilities, load balancing, and smart parking systems that guide drivers to available spots. By making transportation more efficient, smart cities can not only reduce traffic-related emissions but also improve air quality.
Another important area for smart cities is energy efficiency. Smart cities use sensors and data analysis to optimize energy usage, reduce waste, and improve sustainability. This can include smart lighting systems that automatically adjust the amount of light based on occupancy, weather, and time of day, but also smart buildings that use energy-efficient materials and sensors to monitor and adjust heating and cooling systems. To ensure optimal operation of these and other new functionalities, ELEQ has developed the Smart Multi Connection Box including a compact kWh meter and communication module. By improving energy efficiency, smart cities can reduce their carbon footprint and save money on energy costs.
Public safety and security
A smart and connected society starts with high-speed internet. Not only at home or at work, but also outside the house. Safety and security is ensured by connected devices and sensors monitoring public spaces, tracking crime trends, and improving emergency response times. This can include things like CCTV cameras, sound detection systems, and predictive policing algorithms. The Connection Box Fiber from ELEQ offers real-time transfer of large files, allowing you to make optimal use of camera applications or traffic installations. In combination with a sound sensor this offers a solution to quickly give warning by incidents, map out the daily noise, monitor temporary situations and measure how many decibels of noise pollute the public space.
In summary, making a city accessible and liveable is an important challenge for the future when it comes to improving mobility, efficient energy use, health and safety. ELEQ wants to contribute to social challenges by offering smart solutions and the right technology. Currently ELEQ offers a handful of solutions, but there is yet more to come!
