Generally speaking, the concept of a smart city implies integrating multiple information and communication technologies (ICT) and the Internet of things (IoT) solutions for urban property management.

Opt-in personalized notifications on your preferred digital channel
Cloud-based solution, no IT load
Publish aggregated data back as open data for anyone to use
The purpose of creating a smart city is to improve the quality of life of the residents. The employed urban information technologies improve the service efficiency and thus allow to better address the needs of the population.
ICTs allow the city authorities to directly interact with the communities and urban infrastructure. Therefore, the authorities have the ability to directly monitor what is happening in the city and how it is developing. This information helps them to find ways to improve the quality of life.
The following technologies enable new ways of cooperative actions and collective problem-solving strategies in the smart cities: Internet technologies promoting cloud services; Internet of Things (IoT); Smartphones and smart meters; Wireless sensor networks with RFID chips; More advanced communication based on the semantic web.
03Smart City solutions
Protocol and vendor agnostic automation framework; powerful and flexible object metamodel; benchmark of 3rd party APIs (response time, error rate etc.); time series storage and REST data retrieval; time series analytics and ML capabilities embedded in rules; easy integration with external IT systems and APIs; all functionality exposed over REST and stream APIs
04Internet of Things
Internet of things, or IoT, is the concept of a computing network of physical objects (“things”). Generally, advanced technologies are embedded in these “things”, enabling their interaction with each other or with the external environment. The concept considers such networks as a phenomenon capable of restructuring many economic and social processes. As a result of implementing IoT human participation is some processes will no longer be necessary. In principle, IoT is the extension of the Internet Connectivity. The biggest advantage of Internet of Things is than the operator can control them remotely.
mart meters are the advanced meters measuring the consumption data more accurately than the traditional household meters. Additionally, smart meters are capable to connect to the network and send the collected data to the monitoring centers. This allows remote monitoring and even remote payments for the utilities. Smart meters are similar to the conventional meters, with the exception of a few embedded modern technologies, such as:Real-time reading, accumulating and storing of information;Capability of detecting an energy loss, and warning the owners about it;Technologies enabling monitoring the quality of provided services.
city of the (near) future
The city of the future will provide citizens with a more comfortable life thanks to M2M technology. Some advances are already making their way into our urban environments and many others will come soon:
There will be systems that will alert drivers when there is a free parking spot. Citizens will no longer waste their time looking for a place to park and the city will be less polluted
Intelligent transport system
Many public transport systems are already interconnected. This allows for different public transports to be coordinated and to provide information in real time.
Some medical consultations will no longer be necessary. There are monitorization systems for patients which keep their doctor up to date when something such as a rise in blood pressure or sugar occurs.
Monitoring road systems will inform drivers about which route is best at any given time. Also, it will automatically manage the traffic lights in order to reduce congestion to the minimum taking into account the traffic volume at certain times of the day.
They will provide the necessary amount of electricity depending on the demand. This way the power efficiency will be maximized.
Smart urban lighting
Why waste energy if nobody is on the street? Smart urban lighting will adjust the intensity of the light depending on the people who are around.
With smart containers and a good fleet management system, the routes can be tailored to any situation. Thanks to this kind of solution, the efforts in waste collection will be much more efficient.
Smart city maintenance
Citizens will now be able to rely on systems to notify the City Council of any damages in the urban elements through their smartphones. This way things will be repaired faster.
Taxi fleet will be connected and customers will be able to book a taxi with an application. The localization system will notify the closest one without the need of human interaction.
Urban ads will be tailored to each citizen and advertising will provide services. Whereas now we see many concert posters around the city, in the future the customer will have the chance to actually buy the ticket via the billboard.
Smart cities for a better world
In recent years, citizens have changed their ways of communication, their relationships, their habits and their way of living. It is time to raise cities to the standard that their citizens deserve.
A smart city is the place where citizens enjoy sustainable quality of life through technology: economy and productivity, mobility, environment, education, health and security.
We make applications that you can rely on 100%.
