Supporting both Wireless IoT and Wireless Highspeed IoT, PE Smart Urban Network enables the remote management and control of a variety of urban services, also setting the ground to design future applications we might not even think of.

PE Smart Urban Network helps City managers to enhance solid waste collection, encouraging recycling and responsible behaviors. By equipping dustbins with ad hoc designed PE Smart Nodes, it becomes possible to accurately track waste input and optimize waste truck routes upon parameters like bin status, filling levels, etc. This increases service quality and efficiency, and generates further savings on fuel expenses and overall maintenance costs. Garbage-related data could also support the introduction of customized fees for household and commercial users, thus rewarding recycling and correct waste separation.

PE Smart Urban Network also allows Cities to offer data-hungry applications such as Pervasive WiFi, and allow residents and visitors to access communication services, online applications and contents, also covering news, events and infotainment services to make Cities more attractive. By collaborating with shops and local businesses, it could also provide the possibility to design proximity marketing campaigns, thus contributing to grow urban economy.

Video surveillance, traffic control and emergency response support are other possible applications, as IP cameras, surveillance systems, earthquake sensors, and potentially unmanned vehicles can be integrated into PE Smart Urban Network to improve public security and fasten law enforcement intervention when needed.
