Smart cities

The smart city is a city with an open mind. Through sensors it can almost see, hear, feel, smell and taste the digital information that is contributing to a more caring, efficient, safe and sustainable society. Examples of smart city solutions can include everything from smart power grids that balance loads and reduce energy consumption to high-efficiency public transport networks where the routes are optimised with the help of large volumes of traffic data. They can also include automated and resource-conscious waste management and energy-saving lighting that shuts off when everyone has left the office. With both the expertise and experience needed to build entire cities, Sweco has the capacity to transform every city or society, regardless of size, into a smart city or smart society.

Digital three-dimensional models of construction projects allow our customers and other stakeholders to see and understand the end result. 3D can bring plans to life as early as the conceptual phase and make advanced drawings easier to understand.

Combining three-dimensional building models and aerial photos with terrain and altitude data, we depict reality in an extremely graphic way. Visualisation improves the quality of the final result, accelerates the work process and reduces costs.  

Sweco’s experts customise cost efficient solutions, from simple visualisations to advanced 3D web applications. We have developed our own systems for collecting various types of data in shared models, including a solution to easily display 3D images in ordinary browsers and mobile devices.

Sweco can also assist with gathering necessary information through various types of data collection linked to our measurement operations.
