Rock in Rio becomes a smart city, with Vodafone IoT

Business Need

Rock in Rio is one of the largest music and entertainment events in the world. There are five areas that pose major challenges for the event organisers. Management of the bathrooms, where long queues often form; monitoring the levels in the water reservoirs used for various services, to guarantee water did not run out during the event; management of the power used by the various stages; the amount of waste deposited in rubbish bins; and air quality management.

Solution

Smart Cities solutions from Vodafone IoT have been put into practice across the festival to overcome logistical challenges and identify potential efficiencies.

Smart Cities solutions include:

  • Smart Toilet
  • Smart Water
  • Smart Air
  • Smart Waste
  • Smart Energy

“As events producer, I want to provide the highest quality services to the public. Smart Cities added value because it helped to minimise possible problems and to be more attentive to others.” Pedro Marques,
