How cities should be built

Planning and architecture solutions, such as intelligent bus shelters, smart parking and bike sharing reimagine how cities should be built and lived in, while air purification and photovoltaic systems sssscreate lasting value for future generations.

Make the difference

These solutions are integrated hand-inhand with technological systems such as home automation and fibre optic connections as well as social innovation practices that empower citizens to make a difference in their communities.

Planet’s technological solutions are facilitated by the Planet App, which provides access to smart solutions within cities and residences, such as home automation and social innovation practices.
