Remotely controlled street lights on the public domain for local administrations.
Apr 2019 - Jun 2019
A small part of a bigger smart city project planned for the cities of Romania, starting in Iași, made by Urbio, a 100% Romanian group of companies, delivering integrated professional services in design, street lighting, Smart City systems & renewable energy: https://urbio-romania.ro/
Urbio had a new LED street lights infrastructure already installed in the majority of localities around the county of Iași, Romania, so they needed to put in place a smart system that would make them communicate with a server installed at the mayor's office and interact with them on a responsive platform.
- Web platform mostly for the public administration representatives who would see an overview of the lights system status and get reports on functioning schedules, maintenance done by techs and power consumption stats.
- Mobile platform for technicians to install the system, set it up, diagnose and maintain it and even add or adjust many more smart city features in the future (temperature sensors, traffic control data, parking etc.
First few discussions gathered information to start some basic research on street lighting, the smart city concept, competitors and personas.
With a few assumptions from our part, we facilitated a 3-day workshop together with the back-end, front-end, Android developers and technical manager of the dev team.
With this, we started iterating and refining the concept map and user flows, until we got to testing prototypes and handing over the assets for development.
