Wellington City Council, NZ partners with Reveal on a digital twin of the city's underground

City officials wanted an accurate depiction of subsurface conditions as part of its long-term transportation improvement effort. The world-first underground digital twin was built with data from 360-degree cameras, laser scans, and radar. A 3D model spanning 50 hectares of Wellington's busiest neighborhoods depicts everything from utility lines to underground voids. Reveal's work supports community decision-making about public works projects needed to support a growing population.

Barrie, ON and the Canadian government collaborate on a battery-electric bus pilot for the city

Barrie and the national Zero Emissions Transit Fund share the CAD 3.3 million price tag for the pilot.

Milan, LOM pursues first-in-Europe air sanitization project with local taxi cooperatives

Milan and co-op federation Legacoop are using SanificaAria Minis for air quality improvements in taxis. The Beghelli-designed devices use fans to collect air for treatment with UV-C rays. This process eliminates 99.9% of bacteria and viruses at the source of transmissible diseases like COVID-19. Legacoop placed the devices on the back of front-seat headrests to capture air passing between drivers and passengers.
