Digital Signage Connection reported on the deal, the objective of which is said to be is a move towards a sustainable energy that will fit in with “tomorrow’s sustainable city”, and to transform urban communication methods with a new concept. JCDecaux SA, a global outdoor advertising company, and Armor will present their concept in Normandy on 24 January at the Secure Electronic Transactions (TES) Tech Cluster event, and show the “proof of concepts for self-sustaining, interactive, solar-powered street furniture”.
The two French companies said that the new concept is “a real hub of technological innovation for the benefit of citizens”, and the street furniture will use Armor’s ASCA brand photovoltaic film, which makes it “self-sustaining”, and the furniture itself will include a “very low-energy, interactive screen with a range of possibilities” to distribute information, such as a calendar of city events, and it can be used for polls. The public will be able to interact with the screen using their mobile phones.
