Use of urban infrastructure to measure and guide mobilities in order to reduce traffic pollution in real time
As part of the creation of the AIRLAB, Citelum a subsidiary of EDF Group, will be testing a connected urban street furniture prototype that measures mobility in real time.
An active player in the creation of a more sustainable city, Citelum is putting all of its expertise in smart lighting and connected services to work to support Airparif’s policy to improve air quality in the Île-de-France region.
The innovative system draws on urban infrastructure (lighting, traffic lights, cameras, etc.) fitted with next generation image sensors to measure the circulation of the city’s different forms of traffic (vehicles, bikes, pedestrians, etc.). The data collected is then combined with data from the Airparif air quality surveillance system and processed via the public space management platform MUSE® (lien hypertexte sur l’expression surlignée http://www.citelum.com/our-services/transversal-services/muse), developed by Citelum. These results will help decision-makers and urban planners to identify corrective actions and to adapt and develop new infrastructure and behavior.
With this pilot project, Citelum and its ecosystem of innovative partners in the field of connected networks and objects are aiming to make an active contribution to the environmental and health goals of the Regional Air Quality Plan “Let’s Change Air in Île de France”.
