May 2021 - “From the centre of Bologna to the airport in merely 7 minutes”
The street furniture and advertising circuit selected by Marconi Express are a masterpiece of modern design and technology and meet the expectations of one of the most ambitious projects in Europe in the transportation field. “From the centre of Bologna to the airport in merely 7 minutes”, the monorail train is a zero-emission means of transport, able to autonomously producing, by solar panels, up to a third of the energy required for the mobility of 2 million passengers.
In this new technological context, IKON Segnali and Imecon have developed street furniture characterized by a futuristic design, an innovative touch-screen technology, and a static sign path, made with top-quality materials and by using 100% sustainable high visibility devices. The touch-screen technology installed features an innovative system that shows the departure and arrival times of both the airport and the station, in real-time, in addition to information about the city, events, and advertising. These are data hubs that are constantly processed and updated to provide infotainment content on the city of Bologna and its main strategic transport nodes. They are high-performing and equipped with maintenance and remote management software to control and manage both the devices installed and content played, using the same technology installed in the well-known London Underground.
