Smart Cities

Smart Cities look for sustainable growth, diminishing the impact of economic and demographic changes and taking advantage of IT and communication technologies.

Smart Cities

The challenge

 

What does a Smart City might involve?

 

  • Quality of life
  • Governance and public management
  • Urban planning
  • Technology
  • Environment
  • Internal projection
  • Social Cohesion
  • Mobility and transport
  • Human Capital
  • Economy

Half of humanity 3.5 billion people live in cities today and 5 billion people are projected to live in cities by 2030.

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.

Waste management

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.

Smart Parking

Monitoring parking spaces availability in the city.

Traffic Congestion

Monitoring vehicles and pedestrian levels to optimize driving and walking routes.

Structural health

Monitoring of vibrations and material conditions in buildings, bridges and historical monuments.

People

Mobility patterns and prediction of mass movements at public events.

Parks and green areas

Maintenance management and water consumption savings.

Mobility management

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.

Smart Cities Products

Features

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

Solar powered

Long battery life

Predictive and preventive models can be built

Physical characteristics:

  • Minimal maintenance costs
  • Weatherproof enclosure
  • Easy to deploy
