Smart city

As intelligent as its name suggests, the Smart city learns the habits of its citizens, to adapt to them and offer them a better quality of life. It has a range of smart infrastructures that can communicate with each other in real time, forming an ecosystem that is safer, more reliable and more environmentally friendly. The advent of the Smart city notably encompasses the introduction of new transportation solutions that promote electric mobility and shared mobility, as well as the deployment of a new intelligent electricity grid system, the appropriately named Smart grid.
