Smart City scheme launched in St. Petersburg

Russia’s ‘northern capital’ is following in the footsteps of cities like Barcelona, Oslo and Stockholm by launching a Smart City project to enhance safety, security and flow of people around the city.

Smart City systems rely on cutting-edge technology and a huge number of cameras, digital signature and recognition software – all of which will have to be bought to put the scheme into action. “Using digital signature technology means changes to policies in the city can speed up – by working with one information system, the different agencies in the city can align their programmes,” said Elena Ulyanova, the deputy head of St. Petersburg’s Smart City commission. “In Stockholm, a project like this has not just cut traffic, but grown the number of daily public transport users to 40,000.” 

This Smart City scheme will rely on top-quality security equipment, and the city of St. Petersburg has recently put out a $500,000 tender for CCTV equipment, traffic management software, and data processing software.
