Solutions for City councils

HERA SpA offers interested cities, its services related to the new Smart, Safe, Sustainable city model.

As shown, the service can be provided in Steps:

  1. Step 1: Adoption of SDGs; production of the Dashboard and issue of the Environmental Passport
  2. Step 2: Provision of the Smart services: energy map, satellite maps (asbestos, greenery, land and unauthorised buildings) and possible network of stand-alone environmental sensors (air and/or acoustic)
  3. Step 3: Production of technological infrastructure PUNTOnet, PUNTOnet.BIKE, PUNTOnet.BUS
Smart services and PUNTOnet

The description of each individual step is set out below.

Description of Step 1

Adoption of Bologna Charter SDGs
The City council will adopt the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN 2030 Agenda specified in the Bologna Charter for the Environment. These goals are the centre around which the new city concept described in this document will be developed.

Production of the Dashboard
The IT platform, as described in Chapter 3, will be started and fed with data coming from the city.

Issue of the Environmental Passport
It will include the computerised development of the Environmental Passport, the technical support for collecting the local data so as to feed the service and subsequent updates where it is not possible to carry out automation through computer procedures.

Description of Step 2

Energy map
The Energy Map service will be activated on the Dashboard and will be updated once a year.
This service will include geocoding, annual data flow management and Data Analysis.

Satellite maps
Satellite maps of the fields of study described will be activated.

Environmental sensor
The City council can request the installation of sensors for environmental monitoring. The sensors can be air and acoustic sensors contained in a single box, air only or noise only according to the request made.

The sensors installed will be stand-alone, that is, not built into the PUNTOnet technology stations, and will include a photovoltaic panel and a battery so that the device is energy independent. Alternatively, the devices can be connected to a city mains power outlet. The sensor measurements will be processed and represented on the dashboard.

Description of Step 3

Supply and installation of PUNTOnet,PUNTOnet.BIKE, PUNTOnet.BUS technology stations, inclusive of:

  • Painted metal structure
  • Coverings
  • Photovoltaic roof
  • Electric equipment and charging points (for portable devices and triride)
  • Hardware for video surveillance (six cameras per station)
  • Hardware for wifi
  • Environmental sensor box (air + noise)
  • Package deposit cabinet
  • Six e-bikes

The solutions are modular so some of the services listed above can be excluded and others added.

The parties will agree upon the installation points and identify the best conditions for connecting the centres to the existing electricity and data networks.

The local video surveillance service can be activated by the City council, which will bear the running costs and data network connectivity costs.

The City council can activated the public Wi.Fi. service and will pay the data fee.

The data coming from the services activated at the PUNTOnet technology stations will be processed and represented on the dashboard.
