The Beacon Südtirol - Alto Adige project

The Beacon Südtirol - Alto Adige project, born thanks to a cooperation between IDM Südtirol - Alto Adige and the Autonomous Province of Bolzano Südtirol and financed through ERDF funding, is part of the initiatives promoted by the public administration through the "Agenda Digitale 2020". The project aims to implement new technological infrastructures (Beacon Network) and to test new low-cost and low-impact communication technologies (eg. LoRaWAN).

The Beacons are low-power and low-impact transmitters that, by communicating an identifier to a mobile phone, allow to identify its precise geographical position, even without GPS signal.

The technologies introduced by the project, using open and well-documented standards, can be used both by public administrations as well as by private companies. The project will offer to the south tyrolean companies of different economic sectors (eg tourism, civil protection, agriculture, crafts, industry, etc.) innovative tools that can be used to develop innovative services. In this way, the project will help the local companies to be in step with the times and competitive on the local, national and international market.

In fact, digitization is a very important challenge in all economic sectors and the present project intends to create technological infrastructures that are able to help local businesses cope with them.

The project also intend to create a community that promotes the development of ICT in South Tyrol, thus favoring the formation of an innovative context and local economic development.

The goal of the event

This kickoff event is the starting point for the formation of solid foundations for the creation of community of experts both local and national as well as international and for the creation of a context that maximizes the attractiveness of the local territory towards experts and companies innovative.
