Today, Smart Society Services participated, together with Amsterdam Smart City as one of the 6 innovative smart city projects in the Global City Teams Challenge in Washington DC. His Majesty King Willem-Alexander and Foreign Minister Koenders from The Netherlands visited our booth accompanied by Peter Molengraaf (CEO Alliander). They learned about FlexOVL, our new and flexible switching system of public lighting. The King was very interested in the benefits for the municipalities in using this new smart city application.
The Global City Teams Challenge is a collaborative network of project teams, or “action clusters,” working on innovative applications of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies within a smart city / smart community environment. More than 50 forward-looking cities and communities showcased new IoT technologies that are transforming decision making within a smart city / smart community environment around the world.
