Smart city devices help to make everyday tasks easier and more efficient, while also alleviating concerns about public safety, traffic and the environment
Smart grids, which aid in resource conservation significantly, are arguably the best examples of smart architecture and infrastructure
Smart cities offer mindful solutions for a more eco-conscious future with technology backed by the Internet of Things (IoT). Devices and systems that make up a smart city include smart metres, smart waste management systems and smart grids that aid the approach towards conservation and minimise wastefulness, while connecting machines and people in a ‘smart’ way to pave a mindful path for the coming years.
Many cities may turn to technology and advanced networks to help navigate resource constraints with the rise in populations and urbanisation in the coming years. Cities, in particular, may increasingly rely on the Internet of Things (IoT) based solutions known as smart city solution.
Smart cities collect and analyse data using IoT devices such as connected sensors, lights, and metres. Cities then use this information to improve infrastructure, public utilities and services, among other things. Smart city devices help to make everyday tasks easier and more efficient, while also alleviating concerns about public safety, traffic and the environment.
A smart metre is one of the most popular devices among utility companies. Once installed in buildings, they connect electricity meters to a smart energy grid via cloud technology such as AWS (Amazon Web Services), allowing utility companies to effectively manage energy flow. Smart metres also enable users to monitor their energy consumption, which has a significant financial impact on the utilities.
Connected vehicles have risen to the forefront of public transportation and efforts have already begun to bear fruit. Voice search and location data capabilities, in particular, are appealing to drivers and as smart applications evolve and grow, so will the adoption of smart transit.
Waste management is both expensive and inefficient and it can contribute to traffic congestion. Smart waste management solutions can rectify some of these issues by monitoring how full trash cans are at any given time and sending that data to waste management departments that can then provide the best waste pick-up routes.
Air particles, dust, dirt, and cleaning chemicals are constantly floating around in the air. Smart air quality monitors can detect these particles and alert users to the presence of pollutants. Monitoring Air Quality Index (AQI) can alert people to dangerous pollutant levels, either through an indicator light or push notifications to a smartphone or tablet.
Smart grids, which aid in resource conservation significantly, are arguably the best examples of smart architecture and infrastructure. Sensors are installed in the smart grid, which transmits all critical data to stakeholders in real time. Even if a fault occurs, the smart grid can detect it and immediately notify the Distribution Companies (DISCOMS). This saves time and money for the Electricity department. The potential of smart cities is nearly limitless, and the growth of these cities should only accelerate in the coming years.
