What are Smart Cities and Environments?
Smart Cities, campuses, ports, airports, hospitals, etc use connected infrastructure to make life better for people and planners alike.
They include IoT solutions such as:
- Smart Bins that know when they need to be emptied, reducing the need for collection runs and keeping streets safer and cleaner.
- Smart Benches that can charge devices, scooters and e-bikes, and monitor air quality.
- Smart Lights that save energy, make people feel safer, and help keep traffic flowing smoothly.
- Smart Parking that gives visibility of parking use and improves response to overstaying, in real time.
Insights from the data these clever, connected devices produce are being used to improve efficiency and sustainability now, and to guide the future shape of urban areas and city services.
