Project "Smart City" in Antalya
In Antalya, the city administration continues its work on the project "Smart City" - the introduction of digital technologies in all areas of urban life: tourism, transport, health, security, social life and municipal services.
Several points of this project:
Since April 2018 free Internet points will be installed in more than 40 places most visited by tourists. Since 2015, free Wi-Fi is available on the territory of the women's beach in Sarysu, on the beaches in Konyaalti, on Republic Square in the city center, in the Old Town, in the parks Karaalioğlu and Yavuz Özcan.
Another point of the project is the city information displays, which broadcast photographs and video of Antalya, acquainting tourists with Antalya and its sights in Turkish, English, Russian and German. At the moment, there are only 2 displays in the terminals of domestic and foreign airlines of Antalya airport. This year the number of such displays will be increased to 20. For the first time tourists coming to Antalya will also be prepared a special map based on Google - it will indicate the most important directions and routes. Also in the most visited places of Antalya and the region will be comfortable kiosks with air conditioners, free Internet connection, sockets for charging the phone.
ENERGY and WATER SAVING
An important part of the project is intelligent lighting and irrigation systems. In the pilot areas (parks Yavuz Özcan and Serdengeçti), street lights will be installed that increase or decrease the light, depending on the level of daylight brightness. This system will save up to 40% of urban lighting.
With the help of sensors, the level of soil moisture in parks and squares will be analyzed. The irrigation schedule will be set in accordance with the weather forecast and the current level of soil moisture. All the amount of water used will be recorded in the centralized management of irrigation systems. Thus, water losses will be prevented. The project concerns many points and is intended to lead Antalya to a new level of rendering services in all spheres in accordance with the available opportunities of digital technologies.
