Smart cities are driving towards Digital Transformation to improve city operations and citizen services. Innovative outdoor Edge technologies deployed on smart streetlights will accelerate that transformation by powering connected sensors and controls, collecting data, managing devices and cybersecurity, local processing, backhaul over wireless networks, and cloud applications for user displays, alerts, reporting and data analytics.
This webinar introduces an Innovative, outdoor Smart City Edge IoT Platform. Installed on a luminaire, the Edge-based platform performs multiple data functions for connected sensors – capture, analysis, aggregation from multiple sensors, and communication – to cloud SaaS applications. In addition, the Edge platform delivers network flexibility, communicating data to the cloud over both wireless smart grid and cellular networks.
Technology factors driving Edge platform adoption and wireless infrastructures for smart city applications will be discussed:
•Speed data analysis
•Reduce the volume of data transmissions
•Lower hardware compute and storage costs
oMetrics and measurement for real-time analysis
oData analysis plus Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
Real and installed “smart” applications using this technology – urban planning, traffic statistics, bicycle and people counting, road condition monitoring, environmental air quality, power line monitoring, video and audio analytics – and their associated benefits will be highlighted.
