About Gate To Europe

Evropská street is heavily impacted by road traffic. This corridor is used as a connection from not only the airport but also the rest of the northwest regions, including Kladno, into the city Center. Considering all these aspects, Evropská street was chosen as the Smart City Testbed.

Why Evropska Street

Evropská street is quite different from other streets in the City of Prague for its beneficial location that collects all possible attributes and possibilities for implementing new technologies. Not every solution and idea implemented for the Evropská street can be scaled up to the whole city.

Areas of Expertise

Considering the strategic placement and importance of Evropská street, any changes both positive and negative would have a noticeable impact on the whole transportation network of Prague. This alone is reason enough to manage traffic on Evropská street using modern solutions for better optimization.

We may also understand the Smart City Testbed’s system as a sheltering component, integrating all its individual subsystems. When describing a system structure, one should first determine the hierarchy of each layer. Such hierarchy is described as a pyramid.
