Smart city Jelgava

How can we reduce the air pollution by reducing mobility in the city centre of Jelgava?

Every day residents of Jelgava and areas around are using infrastructure of Jelgava, most of the times they choose fastest and easiest root Street Lielā to reach their destination. This choice brings a lot of stress to environment and infrastructure.

Challenge vision

Jelgava is Latvia’s fourth-largest city, but with a population of around 61,000, it’s still considered a micro city. However, Jelgava ranks six among micro cities (those with a population less than 100,000) in the “Connectivity” category.

The city is becoming known as an economically developed centre of knowledge, technologies and innovation. Jelgava has set a goal to become a modern and sustainable environment by increasing the use of renewable energy sources, improving the transportation sector and promoting energy efficiency. It’s been less than a decade and the city has achieved a number of its goals thanks to the connection of IT and city management services, working with tools like a cloud system and Internet of Things.

At the moment municipality is looking for solutions how to get, analyse and give data about intensity of transport and meteorological data to the citizens.  How to use benefits of modern technologies and concept of the smart city to create a dialogue between drivers and city authorities?

Participants will be provided with metherological and data about mobility.
