SEVILLA is paving the way for the cities of tomorrow, despite being one of Spain’s most historical hot-spots.
A multimillion euro venture between mobile phone provider Vodafone and technology giant IBM will see the Andalucian capital transformed into a ‘smart city’.
The installation of intelligent services will ensure the effective management of city resources, from building design to security.
The city’s emergency and utility services will also receive a boost from the €243 million investment in intelligent hardware.
“This project will help turn Andalucía into an innovation centre as well as create new employment opportunities linked to data analytics,” said Antonio Fernández, Vodafone’s regional Andalucian director.
