A smart city project distinguished during the Smart City World Expo Congress in November 2018 in Barcelona, OnDijon led by the French metropolis has competed amongst 473 projects for the World Smart City Award. The project, worth EUR 105 million, half of which given by the City of Dijon and Dijon Metropolis, is expected to lead to considerable savings of energy and optimization of equipment which will enable funding the creation of new intelligent services. The project is unique for France in what is the only centralized and connected management of public equipment so far. Starting from this spring, it shall make possible the rationalization of the biggest part of the technical equipment such as street lights, traffic lights, video protection, road services, thereby facilitating the management of public spaces based on open data.

As a first stage in building the smart city of Dijon, the creation of a single command post shared with the 24 municipalities of the territory is previewed. Ultimately, this will allow to offer new services to the citizens, such as signalling road accidents from the smartphone, broken street lights or simply submitting administrative requests and optimising mobility around the city.
