Out-there in the cities of the future smart, not just high-tech
Alberto Mattiello interviews Guto Indio Da Costa about his "My City Smart” project
Today technology and 5G are changing the way people live and communicate. Guto Indio Da Costa re-imagines the role of urban furniture by focusing on positive interactions and idea-sharing between people. MyCity Smart is an ambitious and innovative digital project that combines the most advanced technologies with the elegant and functional design elements. It is a complex, yet user friendly system, where the urban furniture - from benches to litter bins, from shelters to bicycle racks - communicates and collects data in real time. This information is used to improve public services and help to make cities safer, more efficient and comfortable for both residents and visitors.
