Emitel, in cooperation with the Municipality of Piaseczno, designed and built a network and configured and supplied sensors for intelligent city solutions. This is another project in Emitel’s portfolio built on the basis of LoRaWAN technology.

The scope of work carried out by Emitel included the supply and commissioning of 130 sensors for remote measurement of occupancy of parking spaces in designated areas and 10 ultrasonic sensors for measuring the level of filling of baskets as well as 6 alarm flood sensors for monitoring water levels in rivers and main drainage ditches. Also, a set of sensors for environmental testing (temperature, noise level, and air humidity measurement) has been installed.

– Thanks to the cooperation with Emitel, the Piaseczno Municipality has become another place on the map of Poland that deserved the name of a Smart City by using information and communication technologies to increase interactivity and efficiency of the urban infrastructure – said Daniel Putkiewicz, the Mayor of the Piaseczno Municipality. – Thanks to new technologies and the Internet of things, our municipality is able to become more citizen-friendly, better organized, and more effective in its use of the available resources – added Daniel Putkiewicz.

Emitel has extensive experience in the development of Smart City solutions. It was one of the first companies to start implementing innovative projects in cooperation with local governments. As a part of the network provided by the Company, local governments can implement solutions that improve the standard of living of their residents, help to combat environmental pollution, and find free parking spots in the city. Such a solution has been implemented in such cities as Wrocław and has brought many benefits to the residents, among others by limiting the traffic of tourist buses and, as a consequence, the emission of exhaust fumes.

– According to the report of the working group for the Internet of things at the Ministry of Digitalization, in the long term, implementation of the concept of Smart Cities may constitute an important driving force for the Polish economy, bringing tangible benefits to residents, public administration units, and private businesses – said Maciej Staszak, the Vice-President of the Management Board of Emitel S.A. – I am extremely pleased that Emitel has solutions that significantly contribute to the development of cities in Poland through the use of new technologies and to growing trust in the Internet of things – added Maciej Staszak.
