Barcelona, a smart-city model

The Indian Leaders discovered the new concept being developed by the city's Council during a walk around Gracia

For Barcelona City Council, a smart city is one which works towards improving its citizens' quality of life by guaranteeing sustainable social, economic and urban development in terms of environment, mobility, business, communications, energy and housing. The Council has been fully committed to this idea in recent years. During the walk, the Leaders had the chance to see some of these improvements, such as the 30% reduction in energy consumption for lighting thanks to LED technology, and the 700 Internet hotspots, 24 of which are located in Paseo de Gracia.

The use of mobile connectivity is key to this new system and is the basis for all services, as the Indian MPs were able to see in areas such as the management of parking in the neighbourhood, an innovative solution that allows drivers and authorities alike to intuitively monitor mobility in the area through mobile apps. The Leaders also inquired about the smart bus shelters with contactless technology, which allows people to access information regarding frequencies, fares, tourist recommendations and nearby services from their mobile phones.
