In a quest to expand its smart city initiatives, Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole has chosen a consortium that includes Gisaïa among 10 others consortia in a smart city initiative for digital technology at the service of the territory’s project.

The competitive call for projects received over 30 innovation applications covering diverse themes: mobility, culture, energy, the environment, living in the city, digital inclusion and IOT.
Gisaïa, ICIA Technologies, and Patrick Gendre, who is a mobility expert, proposed the “Open Mobility Dashboards” project.

The Métropole is looking to develop mobility indicators that will support data-backed decision making to improve travel for its citizens. arlas.city, our public transportation data analytics solution will support the initiative in developing public transport indicators. The Open Mobility Dashboard will also include mobility indicators for pedestrians and cyclists.
The projects were selected based on the the following criteria
- The service: level of utility, added value,
- The innovative nature of the project
- Potential economic benefits: visibility and development potential of the project
- The ability to be experimented (the quality of the protocol and the monitoring of uses)
