Dr. Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut gathers information on smart city trends

Important visit at Hess. On Friday, 2 August 2019, the Minister of Baden-Württemberg for Economic Affairs, Labour and Housing Construction, Dr. Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut, visited the luminaire and site furnishing manufacturer on site in Villingen-Schwenningen (DE).


The delegation, including Detlev Bührer (5th from left; mayor), Dr. Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut (centre); Jürgen Roth (4th from right; Lord Mayor) and Karl Rombach (2nd from right; MdL [member of state parliament]), was received by Tobias Roos (2nd from left; Head of Product Management), Jürgen Duffner (6th from left; Sales Manager DACH) and Marco Walz (right; Head of Marketing/Communications and HR)
The minister was accompanied by a delegation which included Karl Rombach, a member of the state parliament, as well as the Lord Mayor Jürgen Roth and the Mayor Detlev Bührer (both of Villingen-Schwenningen). The focus of interest was the infrastructure of a city: networked, intelligent, simply smart.
In this regard, Hess, a leading specialist for Smart City applications, can offer a wide variety of tried-and-tested as well as forward-looking solutions. The luminaires can be equipped in a variety of ways: With WLAN, cameras for security-relevant areas, loudspeakers, GOBO projections, power and water supply, sensors of any kind or charging stations for e-mobility – everything is possible and can be perfectly integrated.
Ideal for an attractive appearance, clearly structured surfaces and a smart environment within urban spaces. Additional functions are also being introduced in the area of site furnishings. For example, benches with qi-charging stations that enable wireless charging of mobile devices and also offer a high level of protection from external influences.
Tobias Roos (right) gave an overview of the latest developments and future trends.
In the future, intelligent rubbish bins will have an automatic fill level indicator to ensure that disposal routes are optimised and that the rubbish bins are only driven to when they really need to be emptied.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you again for your visit!
