Users simply attach the cable to a box designed like a mobile phone and serve as a built-in power meter. Ubitricity enables charging from the lamppost and transmits usage data to the server.

SmartCable contains technology to monitor the entire charging transaction starting with authorization and consumption measurements and includes consumption data transfer and billing process.



A simple socket allows the city government to offer a charging station without having to build expensive and destructive infrastructure such as digging sidewalks or buying land.
