The “Smart Bench” is a new type of bench, patented by the Politecnico di Milano and developed by a design team and a group of specialists in the field of security in partnership with Axitea, a leading Italian company operating in the integrated security field.

 

It is a solution that provides extra urban security:  it allows people to stay connected all the time in public open spaces; at the park, shopping centre, airport or simply along a city street, people will be able to ask for help with a simple press of a button. The “Smart Bench” is equipped with electrical sockets, Wi – Fi and rain – sensors.

 

Thanks to private security company Axitea, the new bench is equipped with a two – way voice communication system, available at all times.

 

The “Smart Bench” is antibacterial, environmentally friendly and it is fitted with rain – sensors that in the event of rain switch off all power sources, only leaving the SOS system active.

 

axiteaThe Smart Bench is made of composite advanced materials: the frame is made of carbon fibre whilst the edges are coated with epoxy resin which captures and stores the sunlight during the day to return it in the form of light at night, making the bench easy to see in the dark.

 

Finally, the entire out – layer is treated with photo – active titanium dioxide which makes it self-cleaning.
