AFRY supports digitalisation of Lund with integration platform
Engineering and design company AFRY has partnered with the Municipality of Lund, in the South of Sweden, in a new innovation project. Consequently, Lund will become one of the first cities in Sweden to implement an integration platform, which in the future will enable integration of all systems. The purpose is to promote a sustainable environment with a high quality of life.
The ‘Lund Open Sensoring City’ is a project funded by the Swedish innovation agency Vinnova. AFRY is part of a consortium together with Axis Communications, Kraftringen, Lund University, Mobile Heights, Sensative, Sony, Telia and Trivector. Together they will create an open, internationally leading testbed with a focus on real-time controlled solutions within movements and flows in the city to promote a sustainable environment with a high quality of life. The project is headed by Future by Lund, the Municipality of Lund. AFRY will establish project documents, as well as deliver and implement an integration platform, thereby enabling the vision of an intelligent and connected Lund.
“This will make Lund one of Sweden’s most digital cities. The link-up will enable a more sustainable and seamless society within everything from infrastructure to energy usage,” says Magnus Sjöström, Digitalisation Expert at AFRY.
By linking and refining data from different systems with common storage, intelligent connections between traffic, weather and space data will be able to facilitate everything from traffic flows to energy efficient buildings.
The Municipality of Lund wants to establish an open testbed for a future real-time controlled society where people, organisations, infrastructure and sensor systems cooperate to create a sustainable environment.
“We are happy that AFRY and other business partners, as well as academia, together with us want to explore the opportunities to, with the help of digital technology, create the prerequisites for a better and more sustainable future in the cities,” says Anders Trana, Project Manager at Lund Open Sensoring City.
The assignment begins in June 2020 and will last for three years.
