The smart benches at TIM’s Open Air Lab 

The Canavisia Smart Benches, installed at TIM’s Open Air Lab in Turin, Telecom Italia’s Torre di Pero and the Samsung TIM stand at the World Expo.  All of them are in the experimental platform in support of the IoT (Internet of Things) designed by TIM and adheres to specific ETSI (European Telecommunication Standard Institute) international standards. This integration took place according to the Future Internet technological paradigm on which the European Commission is also investing research and innovation funds. In particular, the Smart Benches enable to the creation of the Smart City where every city component becomes smart and in active support not only of the citizens, but also of the Public Administration. The collection of the data that the smart objects of the Smart City produce is carried out through the TIM networks which, specifically evolved, create the so-called Smart Urban communication Infrastructure (SUI), the nervous system of the future Smart City. This architecture acts as a technological enabler and accelerator of new ecosystems. It develops new value chains, involving, for example, third parties smart city application developers (SMEs and web entrepreneurs).
