The Brazilian startup Infravias will be at the World Mobility Show in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. CEO Aloisio Pereira da Silva will be one of the speakers and will present the INFRAVIA system during the event that will take place on March 6th and 7th with the theme: “Intelligent Cities and Infrastructure for Intelligent Mobility”, addressing challenges and opportunities in the area of mobility.
In Dubai, Silva will show the case of Foz do Iguaçu where the startup will integrate urban planning, infrastructure, mobility and environment, with the proposal to build a pilot project in Vila A, revitalizing the neighborhood to make it a model of sustainability . The initiative counts on the partnership of the municipal prefect of Foz do Iguaçu and the Itaipu Technological Park (PTI).
Infravias is developing a bus stop for smart cities, a comfortable and safe place with access to the WiFi network. Attached to it there will be a bike rack for a bicycle system and shared scooters.
The INFRAVIA system is an innovative solution for urban infrastructure networks that proposes the creation of a sustainable model of underground ditches under sidewalks and bicycle paths, using recycled plastic from urban waste. In addition to organizing the networks of gas, water, sewage, electricity, communications, sewage and storm drainage, the project brings improvements to the road system, contributing to the population’s well-being and quality of life. The system has already been presented at events in Bangkok, Barcelona, Vienna, Germany, the United States and in several Brazilian cities.
