Smart village of Svebølle

Improving traffic safety for school children with real time data.

The project

To support the development in small towns and rural districts with smart technologies.


Smart Village Svebølle is a living lab for test and implementation of smart technologies supporting development in small towns and rural districts. In Smart Village Svebølle we have for the last 6 to 8 month collected traffic data by sensors mounted in poles in front of the local school.

What the project aims to solve
Based on the collected data, and real time data, we want to demonstrate a smart solution for improving the traffic safety for school children and others who passes the street and square in front of the school in Svebølle. The solution is expected to combine known technologies with new smart technologies using e.g. the present networks, smart phones, LED streetlight and retrofitted new hard wares. You can find more infoabout Smart Village Svebølle here (in Dk).
