Integration of information and communication technology (ICT) and Internet of things (IoT) demands the need for careful planning of not only the implementation but also the ongoing support and management. A Smart City will enable new and improved services for citizens and local business providing an environment where people want to live and work delivering opportunities and improvements for the local economy.
Monitor parking space availability in the city to allow control of traffic flow and improvements in service delivery.
Also allows for delivery of offer/discount vouchers based on location leading to improved user experience and revenue generation for business.
Intelligent road systems can deliver warning messages and divert traffic according to air quality, climate conditions and unexpected events like accidents or traffic jams.
Intelligent street lighting that adapts to weather conditions and can also serve to deliver car charging points and wireless charging points.
Monitor the material conditions and vibrations of buildings, bridges and other structures.
Optimize trash collections routes by monitoring rubbish levels in containers and detect hazardous materials being dumped.
A city has a heart and nerve center that needs information to flow through it to keep it alive. Our Network Operations Centres (NOCs) monitor all the intelligent technology, receiving and analysing the returned data and returning information to controllers situated around the city. Interaction with data sources as a hub to it can contribute to third parties such as utlility companies to increase efficiency and reduce downtime. Increased efficiency provides energy companies the opportunity to deliver cheaper services.
