Moving to Fuengirola: A guide to all you need to know
FUENGIROLA awarded as the most innovative town for beaches in Spain thanks to the sensorisation project of the beaches to control the capacity in its sandy areas using artificial intelligence that the city council launched last summer.
This was accredited this Wednesday, June 2, by the Aslan association in its 13th Awards ‘Success Cases of Digital Transformation in Public Administrations and Organisations’, which was held in Madrid and was attended by the mayor, Ana Mula, and the councillor for Innovation, Isabel González.
As reported by La Opinion de Malaga, the mayor stated that “Today is a very important day for Fuengirola. We are beginning to see our firm commitment to new technologies and the conversion of Fuengirola into a recognised intelligent city. It is a source of pride for all Fuengirolans that the name of our town appears among the national references of modernity and avant-garde for absolutely pioneering initiatives.” Mula reported that they continue to work to implement more innovative systems that allow “to further improve the quality of life of our neighbours and the services we provide in the city council.”
The capacity control system of Fuengirola beaches using artificial intelligence is a service that the city council provided on the city’s coastline last summer and developed by the local company Juma. The system consists of sensors, which were placed in the dozens of streetlights on the promenade, which are connected to a computer program capable of counting the number of people on the city’s beaches in real-time using artificial intelligence.
