Smart city and intelligent street lighting specialist will be present on various stands at  upcoming smart city event

SOWERBY BRIDGE, UK: Lucy Zodion Ltd, intelligent street lighting and smart city specialist, is heading to the Barcelona Smart City Expo World Congress, which takes place on 19th-21st November 2019. The event will provide the company with many opportunities to collaborate and showcase tech innovation.

One of the largest smart city events in the world, the Smart City Expo World Congress provides a unique meeting point for those involved in the whole smart city ecosystem. Lucy Zodion will join the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and the TALQ consortium, among others, on their respective stands to provide insight into the benefits of both collaboration in the smart city and becoming #OptimisedByOpenness.

Collaboration in the smart city

Lucy Zodion is committed to collaboration; its involvement in the event will help to reinforce this, as well as its tech innovation. Through collaboration Lucy Zodion is able to understand unique citizen needs and, in-turn, offer truly valuable smart city solutions.

The company recently launched its Ki. smart city platform and worked with various local collaborators to develop the solution, which addresses a range of municipal pain-points. The result means that Local Authorities are able to monitor and control, evaluate and analyse their smart city assets (such as streetlights), in order to generate actionable insights that better inform urban innovation.

With a vision to unlock the potential of urban spaces with smart, interoperable and scalable systems that truly benefit the community, Lucy Zodion’s ethos mirrors that of the LEP and TALQ for the Smart City Expo World Congress 2019.

Optimised by openness

Lucy Zodion’s collaborative approach doesn’t stop at solution development; it runs deep throughout the entire smart city ecosystem. With a growing impetus for citizen-centric urban spaces, collaboration has never been more important – providers must work together to offer solutions that solve unique needs. This is driving the shift towards multi-vendor smart city solutions.

As a result, there’s a growing requirement for openness. Lucy Zodion’s Ki. solution is #OptimisedByOpenness and has been developed in line with TALQ 2 Gateway and LoRaWAN Class C specification standards. This open approach means it can work alongside other sensor, network and platform providers to develop sustainable, futureproof and open smart city ecosystems that unlock vendor tie-in and give Local Authorities the freedom to integrate new applications based on the evolving needs of the community.

The Smart City Expo World Congress is the ideal platform to explore these core themes further and drive home the ‘Transform lives through tech’ message.

About the event

The Smart City Expo World Congress 2019 aims to be the meeting point to encourage all the stakeholders, ranging from technology industries through to policy-makers and entrepreneurs, to engage in dynamic action to enable a sustainable and inclusive future to take hold.
