What is a smart city?

Improving traffic flow is a considerable challenge for communities. When thinking in terms of multimodal transportation for the future, being able to determine the amount of congestion is key. Solutions such as adaptive traffic lights enable traffic regulation in real time, fewer traffic jams, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

Smart lighting leads to major energy savings and improves residents’ sense of safety. By automating the management of lighting for playing fields, parks, and buildings, you not only reduce your energy expenses, but facilitate the work of your employees. Such management can be handled much more intelligently through the use of presence sensors and lighting levels, as well as automated scheduling.

By using data that is both up to date and precise, residents and visitors will be able to discover empty parking spaces in advance and optimize their routes and movements through busy commercial areas. This will also contribute to reducing traffic caused by drivers searching for parking spaces.

Optimize the selective collection and smart management of garbage with solutions ranging from sensors that indicate when bins are full to the optimization of collection routes. You’ll reduce the number of unnecessary trips and keep your parks, common areas, and public spaces a lot cleaner and more welcoming to visitors when you can receive notifications once garbage levels have reached pre-established limits.

Connected, self-sustaining scientific weather equipment provides complete and accurate data for your city (precipitation, air quality, etc.).

Smart video enhances the safety of citizens by triggering instant alerts when suspicious activities are detected. The smart city is also the key to predicting natural hazards, which improves protection of its inhabitants, and also its assets and economic activities.

The IoT is an alternative to physical and time-consuming monitoring through automatic location and immediate detection of any malfunction or misuse.

Asset, vehicle or individual tracking solutions enable effective coordination of your resources. With automatic localization and immediate detection, the tracking platform provides an overview of your operations and facilitates their management (e.g., maintenance or disinfection operations management).

Water meters control water consumption and distribution at all times. With real-time alerts, you can quickly access data and reduce risk.

Connected transportation and vehicle fleet management

Municipalities can benefit from a connected transportation solution that tracks their fleets of vehicles.
