Smart cities – those that use IoT sensors and technology to connect components across and city and derive data that will improve the lives of citizens – are on the rise. In fact, the smart city industry is projected to be a $400 billion market by 2020, according to McKinsey.
But smart cities come with their own set of challenges. As we’ve covered previously on this blog, IoT is driving a data explosion across almost every major industry, and the same is true of smart city IoT components. The volume, variety and value of IoT sensor data is a new frontier for city managers, and they need better tools to help them turn this IoT data into actionable insights.
DVmobile helps companies develop custom IoT solutions and manage IoT analytics through robust dashboards that deliver centralized data in real time. And, for the first time ever, we’re applying our IoT expertise to the smart city market.
At LightFair International last May, we presented our version of a fully interconnected smart city dashboard. In partnership with Visionaire Lighting and Arrow Electronics, we re-envisioned what a city monitoring interface might look like - demonstrating how various IoT sensors and lights can be connected to present disparate smart city data within a single dashboard.
Our solution gives city managers the ability to assess and monitor “smart” municipal operations throughout their city within one easy-to-use interface. With our dashboard, city managers can access up-to-the-moment information on lighting, Wi-Fi, air quality, water usage, energy consumption, crime reports and more, simultaneously.
Delivering this wide variety of data in one consolidated dashboard empowers cities to better manage their operations, plan for outages and service updates, and serve the citizen population.
Ready to see how DVmobile can help your organization or city make sense of its IoT data? Need a new IoT solution for your organization or municipality? We’d love to connect and show you a demonstration of our IoT development and analysis capabilities.
