Galleria degli Specchi (Palazzo Medici Riccardi) - Florence, Italy

The ELASTIC project developed an integrated, safe and smart urban mobility environment, with less accidents, efficient traffic management and reduced maintenance costs by enhancing the interaction between the city infrastructure, the public tram network and private vehicles. In particular, ELASTIC provides the required scalable computing infrastructure to the Florence tramway network, enhancing the tramway public transportation services as well as its interaction with the private vehicle transportation. These results will improve the overall Florence transportation network performance, thus enhancing the quality of life of citizens in terms of safe mobility and service availability.

The novel ELASTIC software architecture has been evaluated with three specific applications to assess and highlight the benefits of ELASTIC technology for newly conceived tramway solutions. Three trams in Florence have been equipped with sensors and advanced connectivity to test test the developed technologies in this real-case scenario. Are you interested in seeing in real-time these research results from the hand of our ELASTIC experts?
