"Creation of comfortable cities is one of the most urgent tasks currently facing our country.

Some of the proposals developed within Shvabe are aimed at innovative solutions supporting urban environment and smart urban transport projects," noted Sergey Dmitrochenko.

The tasks solved by Shvabe major projects can be attributed to the Smart City subsystems, in particular, the maintenance of the Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) in Moscow, where thousands of traffic lights, security and traffic infringement cameras and other technical solutions are operated by Shvabe-Moscow Holding Company. The second initiative, is the organization of architectural and artistic illumination of the main cultural sites and installing the energy-saving equipment by the Holding’s Ural Optical and Mechanical Plant named after E.
