The need for more effective technological solutions in public spaces is becoming more apparent, so the 'Totem' street pole is intended to be a powerhouse for civilians.

Outfitted with solar panels on the top portion, the 'Totem' will capture energy from the sun and store it within battery packs inside the unit. This energy can be used to charge electric vehicles or even directed into the grid in order to help when it comes to energy generation within city spaces.

The 'Totem' street poles feature WiFi and 4G modules, which could help to provide connectivity for city dwellers or for students on a college campus. Finally, the 'Totem' features smart lighting in order to ensure that the optimal level of illumination will be provided.
