Monday 19 June 2017 | 12:51 CET | News

Norwegian regional utility Lyse said and IT company Atea are involved in a pilot project with Stavanger city council and the shopping area Stavanger Sentrum to test new technology. The idea is to turn the city centre and the area within a 10 km radius into a smart city, using a Wi-Fi network and sensors to monitor pollution, refuse collection, road traffic and water levels.

The smart city services will use LoRoWAN as well as Wi-Fi and the pilot will begin in September 2017. The scheme will also enable new payment methods in shops. The company Creator Makerspace will run an open sensor hackathon and the start-up company Bolder is involved, too.
