As an engineering firm, a consultancy and the operator of innovative urban services, Egis has made the “smart city” concept a powerful springboard to promote urban performance in all its facets (appeal, energy saving, resilience, etc.).

Egis develops concrete high added value services in urban engineering, eco-mobility, economic and spatial planning, project structuring, etc., whose positive effects can be felt at all levels of the urban ecosystem.

It is widely acknowledged that systems applied to urban management can help to make cities more sustainable. This systemic approach, applied to many areas – transport, energy, water, waste – can indeed help to manage cities more efficiently and cost-effectively.

Connected devices
Innovation in cities comes from a wide range of sources today: sensors to measure buildings’ energy efficiency, applications to monitor running water installations or air quality, and connectivity between vehicles and infrastructure, to name but a few. IoT (Internet of Things) is promised a central role in the cities of tomorrow.

Smart lighting
Public lighting can be communicating and act as a data centraliser. Wherever they come from, these data can contribute to urban performance. Public lighting thus becomes “smart”.

Shared streets and dynamic bus lanes
Our road infrastructure approach is based on the variable distribution of space, depending on the times at which it is used.

Carpooling
Carpooling is viewed as a comprehensive product encompassing infrastructure (segregated lanes, carpool pick-up stops, etc.) and facilities (signalling, enforcement, etc.) whilst also incorporating the interfaces necessary for its organisation.
