Real areas for access to the Smart City, in the Digital Islands users can use the free recharge columns for their electronic devices (pc, tablet, smartphone) and at the same time have the opportunity to keep up to date on the events of the city , on cultural and tourist events or on the state of mobility, traffic and public transport, knowing in real time the position of the various vehicles through a multilingual touch-screen totem.
Another primary function of the Islands is that of parking spaces reserved for both private electric cars and the current provider of the Car Sharing Full Electric service.
