(25/11/2013) On Novembre 19, 20 and 21, the 3rd edition of Smart City Expo took place at the Gran Via venue of Fira de Barcelona. It was composed of the conference and the exhibition.

On one hand, the conference has got together world leading experts, such as Richard Florida, professor at the University of Toronto, or Ken Larsson from MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), who have shared their idees about the Smart Cities of the future.

Different strategies to face the coming problems of cities have been discussed, including environmental threats, the over consumption of non-renewable resources or the ageing of the infrastructures.

On the other hand, companies providing solutions to smart cities have presented their most innovative products and solutions in the exhibition. There were more than 160 companies from all over the world. Some of the solutions presented included intelligent urban waste collection using containers that can inform about their available capacity, monitoring and management systems of electrical energy, or intelligent control of public lights.

In the stand of Nexus Geografics, Newronia's partner, the visitors could see the urban delivery and pick-up route optimisation system Routing Reparto.
