The new artistic lighting system in the Grand Gallery at the Royal Palace of Caserta by DZ Engineering

On the 1st of March this year, after almost a century, the north wing of the western arm of the Royal Palace of Caserta was resplendent with light once again.

The restoration work, carried out by a temporary joint venture between DZ Engineering S.r.l., Vincenzo Modugno S.r.l. and Costruzioni and restauri Cosedo S.r.l., has made it possible to renovate these rooms, which had remained in disuse by the Air Force, to be used as spaces for temporary exhibitions.

As part of the project, DZ Engineering was responsible for the design and installation of a functional and accent lighting scheme, controlled by an integrated management and monitoring system.

 

Artistic accent lighting

During the design and installation of any artistic lighting system, DZE focuses on preserving and enhancing the intrinsic characteristics of the space involved in order to provide the public with a high-quality experience and, through the use of accent lighting, to create points of interest around the works on display, thereby capturing the attention of visitors and aiming to create an immersive experience for them.

In this setting, the objective is the conservation of artistic and cultural heritage through lighting installations that enhance and complement the structural, material and artistic elements of the various spaces in order to best highlight the works of art, as well as the architectural details that characterise the areas used for exhibitions and display.

 

DZE’s project for the Grand Gallery at the Royal Palace of Caserta

The artistic lighting system created for the northwest wing of the building by the 18th-century Italian architect Luigi Vanvitelli is based on a balance of functional and accent lighting, designed to respect the vision of the spaces as they were originally conceived of by the neoclassical architect.

The intensity of the lighting varies throughout the day thanks to the automatic light management system, which makes the lights flexible, allowing them to adapt to the ambient light.

DZe-FLAG FOR SEPANG INTERNATIONAL CIRCUIT

DZe-FLAG, its origins and the phases of the project

The aim of the project that led to the birth of the illuminated flag system was to create a useful aid to ensure the safety of drivers on the track, by guaranteeing – thanks to cutting-edge LED technology – perfect visibility in all weather and light conditions, during both day- and night-time competitions.

The DZe-FLAG patent

DZE’s engineering team created the electronic flags based on the guidelines provided by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA).

Compared to other competitors on the market, the system designed by DZE stands out because of its ability to wirelessly communicate with the various components involved.

The patented technology allows the signal flags to be controlled and operated by means of touch-screen tablets, which can be highly customised in a short period of time, without compromising industry safety standards.

Electronic signal flags are unprecedented in this field and represent an element of true technological innovation in the motorsport sector.

What has happened since 2008

Following the debut of electronic flags in 2008 at Singapore’s Marina Bay circuit, the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) has introduced new guidelines with the aim of increasing safety levels at all international circuits.

New regulations and new standards have been introduced by both the FIA and the FIM (Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme) and our company has responded accordingly with full compliance as regards the illuminated flags project by becoming certified suppliers and installers of electronic signal flags for circuits of all categories and grades (Grade 1, 2 and 3 licenses assigned by the FIA and Grade A, B, C by FIM), thus becoming one of the three players in the world in possession of the full range of required certifications.

Smart City Control Room Florence, the role of DZ Engineering

Smart City, an ambitious project by the European Commission

A smart city embodies the ideal of an urban context where resources are managed with a view to achieving energy self-sufficiency and economic sustainability in order to guarantee its citizens a significantly higher level of quality of life.

 

In projects that involve the renovation of infrastructure and services provided to citizens, the use of IoT technologies has become of fundamental import for several reasons, for example: improved management and optimisation of resources, reduced environmental impact, the design and construction of environmentally sustainable urban transport networks, improvement and enhancement of services as well as the development of new ones.

 

Within a smart city, we also “work” to foster relations with intellectual, human and social capital: all citizens actively contribute to public policy and make city administration an interactive and responsive enterprise.

 

Furthermore, sustainability, efficiency and innovation make it possible to increase the level of safety in urban spaces, providing protection for the entire population.

 

 

 

Technology developed by DZ Engineering

The Smart City Control Room project is the result of the experience and know-how developed by DZ Engineering in both the motorsports industry and urban safety. The implementation of CCTV control systems at F1 and MotoGP racetracks (Singapore, Monza, Imola, Hanoi and Mandalika) and the city infrastructure in Ravenna, Forlì, Cesena and Crotone were the foundations for achieving a high level of excellence in the field.

 

A true gem of advanced technology that will allow the City of Florence to:

  1. increase the efficiency levels of its mobility management by facilitating complete information sharing;
  2. have total control over what happens every day regarding public and private mobility, security, lighting, traffic lights and infomobility;
  3. create a model to analyse joint urban functions where all data and information are leveraged to organise the day-to-day and extraordinary management of the city and to define strategies.

 

The IT infrastructure of the Control Room

The infrastructure of the SCCR has been designed to accommodate an operations centre that is responsible for communications and cooperation between the various stakeholders, the exchange of information and synoptic overview of shared information, and the integration of information systems and processes.

 

In order to foster collaboration and cooperation, a single workspace has been created where the hardware and software systems make it possible to:

 

  • centralise the information contained in municipal databases and management systems regarding the street network;
  • create a platform to interface with the systems of external operations centres;
  • develop a monitoring and management system that provides a real-time view of the level of efficiency of systems and municipal services.

 

Activities carried out in the Control Room

Day-to-day work in the Control Room involves the use of predictive logic to plan for and coordinate all events that could have an impact on city mobility, for example, construction sites or public demonstrations.

 

The transparent management of scheduled and unscheduled events allows efficient solutions to be implemented and pertinent information to be shared in a timely manner with all parties involved.

 

This modus operandi makes troubleshooting and/or problem-solving faster and smoother.

 

Finally, the Control Room constantly monitors public services and the proper functioning of technological equipment installed on the streets, such as lighting and Wi-Fi antennas.
