Smart Cities look for sustainable growth, diminishing the impact of economic and demographic changes and taking advantage of IT and communication technologies.
What does a Smart City might involve?
- Quality of life
- Governance and public management
- Urban planning
- Internal projection
- Social Cohesion
- Mobility and transport
- Human Capital
Half of humanity 3.5 billion people live in cities today and 5 billion people are projected to live in cities by 2030.
IoT Solution for Smart Cities
What can be measured?
- Air quality, pollution
- Noise levels
- Waste management
- Parks and green areas
Applications of IoT technology for Smart Cities
Air quality, pollution
Measurement of air pollution levels in urban and industrial spaces.
Acoustic and noise level monitoring
Monitoring of noise levels in urban and industrial spaces.
Control of the filling level of waste containers to optimize collection services and transport routes.
Lighting, electricity management
Management of public lighting to optimize energy consumption according to lighting needs.
Water resources management
Water resources management.
Monitoring parking spaces availability in the city.
Monitoring vehicles and pedestrian levels to optimize driving and walking routes.
Monitoring of vibrations and material conditions in buildings, bridges and historical monuments.
Mobility patterns and prediction of mass movements at public events.
Parks and green areas
Maintenance management and water consumption savings.
Management of the traffic of people and vehicles in urban spaces to guarantee mobility in all means of transport.
Social distance control
Detection of people and vehicles in public spaces to guarantee compliance with social distance regulations in pandemic situations.
Benefits of IoT technology for Smart Cities
Smart Cities normally improve citizens’ quality of life beyond money-saving or return on investment. Saving money is not the central driving force. Smart City visions that are holistic, pluralistic and citizen-centric, focusing on improving services and solving pressing urban issues, will be the most effective and cost-efficient in the long term.
Smart Cities Products
Smart Cities is a product designed to detect different basic parameters related to ambient conditions, noise levels, air quality and luminosity for several applications.
Products are constantly updated, improved and developed to offer the greatest efficiency
Allied with specialized companies, integrating the best sensors in the market
Interoperability: any wireless technology including LPWAN communications: important for Smart Cities projects
Any cloud platform: compatibility with city council platforms
High accuracy sensors (continuously improving). Calibrated gases sensors are useful to measure the exact value in PPM’s of a gas concentration, it is designed to be used in applications that require accurate readings and exact concentrations
Particle Matter Sensor -commonly known as “Dust Sensor”- is integrated in the platform. This sensor allows to measure PM1, PM2.5, and PM10 particles. This sensor comes also calibrated from the factory
Long battery life
Predictive and preventive models can be built
- Minimal maintenance costs
- Weatherproof enclosure
- Easy to deploy
