A prestigious award for Smart Bench intelligent bench adopted by the city of Ivrea, and which will shortly be installed in close proximity to the pedestrian walkway. ICT Innovation Award Piedmont SMAU.
The project Smart Bench was in fact one of the finalists of the Innovation Award ICT Piedmont, ev event organized by the Italian SMAU observatory and dedicated to the most innovative use of digital technologies by enterprises and local authorities, and won in the category "Innovation for community".
The award was presented Wednesday, May 14 at 14.30 at the pavilion room 1 of the Oval, Lingotto Fiere.
The idea was born in Ivrea, where Olivetti was born there and grew up: the dream of an inclusive technology at the service of the company obviously has very deep roots. "The need - said the commissioner for innovation and deputy mayor of the City of Ivrea, Mr. Capirone - was born from the initiated dialogue between us and a group of companies who have got together to create product innovation". In a series of brainstorming on the topic of smart cities, the idea came up of investigating around the static objects that characterize the city. How could we make them dynamic and intelligent?" Ours is a city totally wired to wi-fi and people have the problem of having to recharge smartphones and tablets - sums Capirone - so why not offer a connection to the electricity grid to those who decide to stop for a moment?".
Smart Bench made its debut in October 2013 in Ivrea, near the new pedestrian bridge over the Dora Baltea in Via Mulini. "In those days of trial - says Capirone - the interest and satisfaction of citizens have been remarkable. "Since then, however, after this first public appearance, Smart Bench is "in blck bench" waiting for the cameras to be installed in the area. "We want to protect ourselvec from vandalism", says Capirone.
