Challenge / Goal
The city recognized the need for a Smart Cities Platform to act as a hub for the collection and use of information and data.
Logroño intends to grow with several objectives
- increase the quality of life of its residents
- to ensure the economic, social and environmental sustainability of the city
- to make Logroño a more innovative, competitive, attractive and resilient city.
The "Smart Management of the City of Logroño" project consists of many different tools, such as a municipal GIS system, remote control of public lighting, smart irrigation system, anti-theft devices for lighting cables, etc. They are also part of the Spanish Network of Smart Cities (RECI) and the Covenant of Mayors. The city wanted to change while maintaining its identity, strengthening its economy and placing citizens at the center of all decisions and encouraging them to participate more. Smart Logroño is a set of strategic solutions to prepare the city, its workers and all projects.
The objectives and vision for the future of the city were identified, with the aim of placing citizens at the center of all decisions made and all development undertaken.
Three main groups were defined: Infrastructures and Communication Networks; the Integrated Control Center CCI; and the Integrated Municipal Services Management Platform - each group taking on different tasks.
- The Integral Control Center CCI is the symbol of the integration of resources dealing with traffic, transportation, street lighting, etc.
- Communication Infrastructures and Networks provides the necessary connectivity of smart cities between people, devices and systems.
- Integral Management Platform of Municipal Services offers Open Data to citizens, creates relationships with different groups and organizations in the city, stores Big Data related to Logroño among other things.
While offering services to its citizens, the city is able to manage itself autonomously through automation or with minimal human intervention. It is also able to monitor the amount of resources such as water and energy used and is able to automatically program itself to reduce its use. The system warns of any potential service failure, allowing the city to work ahead and save time.
