Oslo’s municipality environment department built smart bicycle pavilion, where cyclists can fix or wash their bikes, while learning tips how to improve the environment and get support from the municipally. It’s truly modern connection between people, municipally and knowledge.
Oslo is the capital city of Norway and has a population of 658,390. Oslo’s approach to conserving its natural areas and restoring its waterway network is just one of the many reasons why it won the European Green Capital Award for 2019. In 2017 Oslo banned parking cars in city center. Numbers of cyclists significantly increased. While cycling has its benefits, it brought some new challenges such as bike parking and bike maintenance.
Oslo’s step was in building smart bicycle pavilion – outdoor self-service service station. Pavilion has the tools cyclists need for bicycle maintenance.
But pavilion with tools alone is nothing special. Smart city solution are remote diagnostics LCD signs built in to pavilion structure. Digital outdoor signs enhance communication between municipally and citizens in this case cyclists.
Oslo’s municipally needed high quality, full outdoor digital sign with remote diagnostics.
Norway climate isn’t really lenient with outdoor LCD systems. LCD panels are very thermally sensitive and need special care. Bad thermal management can lead to disfunction and even permanent damage.
Controlmotion remote diagnostic makes maintenance and support of the units much easier. Constant system monitoring and instantaneous alarms enable fast and quality measures. Final result is less time spent at the location leading to lower after-purchase activities and cost.
Internet connected wall mount LCD digital signs were built in to the pavilion structure. Beside the benefit of 24/7 communication system signs also inform cyclists about parking space in nearby parking place. Other messages on the signs are in conformity with the title European green Capital and are purely environmental, such as tips on how to improve the environment with municipality support.
Oslo’s municipally chose our imotionFLOW 75” Wall Mount landscape design. The idea was for screens to be built for harsh environment with remote diagnostics.
