Digital innovation

Wolverhampton is embarking on its journey to become a Smart Digital City.

Internet of Things (IoT) sensors enable urban areas to remote control aspects of public services and utilities, from street lighting, traffic management and car parking. Data collected from sensors also support the management of city services; enabling cost savings by directing resources to where they are needed and when they are needed. Environmental sensors that detect, monitor and track air quality and temperature alongside those that count footfall, traffic and cyclists can be utilised in city planning and regeneration.
