Smart City is an urban area that uses different types of electronic data acquisition sensors to provide useful information for asset and resource management. This includes data collected from citizens, equipment, and other assets. This data is then processed and analyzed to monitor and manage traffic, and transport systems, power plants, water networks, waste management, law enforcement, information systems, schools, libraries, hospitals – the list goes on.
Experts around the world know that Smart Cities are the future promoters of economic growth – and, thus, the key to citizens’ quality of life.
Our solution provides one platform for all Smart City data collection needs. This includes smart metering systems, smart distribution and monitoring systems, traffic management, electronic governance, intelligent lighting systems, home and building efficiency systems, intelligent healthcare, and environment monitoring
With our deep understanding of IoT and its access protocols, the EMQ team has proven success in designing standards for the intelligent infrastructure of many Chinese Smart Cities.
In the past ten years, the number of vehicles worldwide has grown from 900 million (2006) to over 1 billion (2014). This number is expected to reach 2 billion by 2035. Many of these projected vehicles will be connected cars – vessels that can communicate wirelessly with various devices, such as sensors, phones, and cameras. Moreover, researchers have predicted that 25 billion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2020, which will open further challenges such as pollution, road safety, and efficiency of network infrastructures.
