Telefonica Vivo taps Ericsson for smart parking solution for digital city project in Brazil

Telefonica Vivo has selected Ericsson to supply the smart parking and smart lighting solutions and system integration for its digital city project in Aguas de Sao Pedro, Brazil.

Ericsson will be responsible for the design, installation, roll out of the project and managed services, including operations and maintenance after rolling out.

The telecom network vendor will deliver and install a solution enabling the public energy system to remotely control and monitor the energy consumption of each light point, switching lighting on and off where necessary.

Ericsson will assist Telefonica Vivo to save energy and cut costs.

Ericsson will deliver and install smart parking sensors across public parking areas in the municipality of Aguas de Sao Pedro. The sensors will detect whether a parking spot is vacant or not, and the system will cut down on both traffic congestion and carbon emissions. The rollout of the project is already underway.
