Function with design and service: Our aim is to integrate street furniture and media stylishly and discreetly into the urban environment while helping to design modern public spaces by providing services and infrastructure. This includes the construction and management of customary street furniture such as bus shelters and toilet facilities, but also the provision of digital media and the option of displaying municipal information on them. Our portfolio also includes installations individually tailored to a city’s needs as well as the removal of unauthorised posters.
Sustainability is important to us throughout our entire product and service portfolio. Our digital advertising media are already powered by electricity from renewable energy sources. Our management processes also undergo a continuous optimisation process in order to conserve resources and reduce CO2 emissions.
Smart City & Digitalisation
Thanks to the Internet, quick information and direct dialogue have become an ordinary part of our everyday lives. Digitalisation in the public space offers many interesting possibilities in this context.
Used as municipal information systems, digital media in public spaces facilitate the flow of information and dialogue between the city and its residents. Calls for citizen participation, event announcements to promote the cultural scene and support for local businesses contribute to a modern, open and solidarity-based community just as much as the possibility for ad-hoc warnings, real-time alerts about missing or wanted persons, and general safety notices. Placed along streets, in public transit areas, pedestrian zones, railway stations and shopping centres, a city can use the digital media in its “municipal information system” to reach its citizens in public spaces at any time.
Our “Kommunales Informationssystem für Städte “(KIS) [Municipal Information System for Cities] provides information for cities right on site. The content shown on our digital media is a varied mix, comprising editorial programmes such as news from our partner t-online or sustainability updates as well as infotainment in the form of weather reports or knowledge questions. Advertising is also included, primarily from local retailers.
Together with external partners, we are developing sustainable space-saving solutions that can be integrated into or onto our advertising media and street furniture. These include air filters, energy-saving e-ink timetable displays, solar panels, sensor technology to measure air quality, and the greening of roofs and surfaces.
The result is street furniture and outdoor advertising media that make an active contribution to the continued development of the smart city model – communicative, digital and sustainable.
