Basic Elements of IoT in Smart Cities

Public Safety

  • Law enforcement wearables

    City law enforcement can operate more efficiently and responsibly with officer wearables connected to IoT network services. IoT devices for officers include body cams that can record video/audio and sensors to monitor the officers’ vital signs. This smart city technology improves police accountability for citizens and emergency response for police officers.

  • Crime mapping & prevention

    Smart cities provide critical data for understanding crime patterns. With reliable connectivity, you can receive real-time updates of crime scenes and criminal activity. The aggregated data can be used to map ‘crime hotspots’ that help predict when and where a crime will take place.

  • Gunshot detection

    Sensors stored in appropriate city locations detect gunshots and notify policy with information such as location, number of shots fired, shooter position, and gunfire history. Established IoT connections can provide quick gunshot alerts allowing law enforcement to intercept potential mass shootings.

Environmental Improvements

  • Smart Infrastructure

    Smart city planning and building are improving energy efficiency with solar energy, LED lighting, and smart grids to monitor energy flow. These features can be monitored, controlled, and improved with constant IoT connectivity.

  • Smart Waste Management

    IoT connected trash bins allow waste collectors to monitor waste level and optimize fuel usage. Sensors inside the waste bins can notify city workers to create a more productive waste management system.

  • Smart City Platforms

    City platforms are used to monitor pollution levels, water consumption, irrigation systems, and gas leakes. This smart city technology records data from multiple sources to be used for future environmental initiatives.

Transportation Efficiency

  • Traffic Management

    Adjust to city growth with reliable traffic management. IoT traffic sensors monitor traffic flows throughout the city and send automatic updates to adjust traffic flow. With strong IoT connectivity, traffic lights can be altered to improve road conditions within seconds.

  • Smart Parking

    In congested city lots, smart parking identifies vehicles entering and leaving the lot. Traffic management platforms can then update drives on open parking spaces and traffic flow. Real time updates allow for a quick response on traffic platforms.

  • Car & Bike Sharing Programs

    Vehicle sharing programs make transportation services more available and accessible to city residents. These programs help reduce fuel emissions and traffic congestion.

Core Values of the Internet of Things for Smart Cities

Economic Development

Businesses and individuals within smart cities benefit from improved safety and economic performance. City developments attract positive growth with the help of IoT data and strategies.

City Productivity

Improving the city productivity with better transportation services and environmental strategies are viable through IoT technology and connectivity. Bringing reliable connectivity to devices across the city can be accomplished through our reasonably priced IoT services.

SIMON IoT provides transparent pricing and a user-friendly data portal to make our IoT connectivity your best option.
