We understand that IoT is a complex subject facing our cities. Therefore, we keep it simple
The Internet of Things for communities is first and foremost a means of improving the quality of certain services. Many infrastructures are today based on networks of sensors which provide useful information for monitoring services, such as road salting, mobility, air quality, household waste collection and much more. These connected infrastructures are a key element in the development of smart cities.
Management of traffic, transport, mobility and parking solutions
Nowadays, mobility is a major challenge facing city dwellers. IoT infrastructures can provide dynamic and smart solutions to reduce mobility and parking problems:
Avoid traffic jams
Reduce fuel consumption and vehicle emissions
Give available parking information
Identify structural problems like bridges, tunnels, buildings, roads
The objectives and expected results will save time, energy, gas and particulate emissions and maintain a smooth flow of traffic.
Safety and security are the main concerns of authorities and governments around the world. Without technology, it is difficult to trace the inappropriate behavior and offensive conduct in cities and towns. Top-quality surveillance programs are needed to eliminate threats. Diginav IoT-enabled solutions can quickly help police and security personnel detect risky locations, the suspects involved, and the number of people affected.
IoT sound sensors
Smart video surveillance
Smart street lights
The IoT in security systems can also help in the effective surveillance of public places like markets, shopping malls, airports, hotels, metro stations, banks and hospitals.
The modern age has brought sedentary lifestyles. Even though the advancement of medicine and technology has improved the life expectancy of human beings, it has also created new types of diseases and health problems in the urban population. IoT in the healthcare sector facilitates remote monitoring, thanks to smart sensors and activity tracking devices, IoT technologies thus play an essential role in e-health! Smart cities need smart hospitals that can:
Track patients remotely
Quickly deliver emergency services
Offer preventive measures
Analyze patient data and use it in better research practices
Waste management is an important issue for territorial institutions in urban areas. A population generates a large amount of waste, IoT smart bins, garbage disposal methods, garbage monitors will help communities maintain a clean, pleasant and peaceful environment.
Many organizations use Diginav IoT-enabled solutions to measure the filling of bins and thus optimize collection.
The identification of garbage according to its characteristics: biodegradable, electronic waste, non-degradable, recyclable, etc. will help improve our environment and make it more sustainable.
Smart energy consumption and the environment
While technology makes life easier, it can also hurt our environment such as the use of carbonaceous natural resources. To preserve future generations, cities are investing in renewable forms of energy such as solar, wind and water, also in reducing energy consumption through smart devices. Gathering data from connected infrastructure will help your organization:
Monitor usage and provide lighting in different areas based on their real-time needs.
Adapt the lighting settings to environmental conditions such as fog or rain.
Use real-time data to control the working status of light poles, indoor and outdoor.
The IoT plays a key role in term of sustainability, by setting up networks of connected sensors to monitor the quality of the environment for better information and decision-making. Diginav smart solutions can be the answer to some challenges like:
Reducing water consumption
Improving air quality
Controlling the elimination of wastewater
Most Legionella outbreaks are primarily attributed to the construction of water systems that are not managed or maintained properly and can lead to Legionnaires' disease, lung infection and respiratory disease which, in the worst case scenario, could be fatal.
By choosing proactive monitoring of your water systems, the risks of causing a Legionella epidemic are considerably reduced.
Optimization and savings: the operation of buildings, car parks, smart lighting, remote monitoring to control incivility, waste collection, can be transformed thanks to IoT connectivity and Diginav smart solutions.
Decision support and policy evaluation: communities inform citizens about air quality, both inside and outside buildings, for noise pollution evaluations, the economics of water resources, or the assessment and regulation of road traffic.
Citizen service: Open data platforms are one of the tools that improve user information
Smart grids: which optimize production, distribution and consumption, then adapt supply to demand for electricity. These networks can apply to buildings or cities infrastructure.
Smart infrastructures for the autonomous vehicle: The 5th generation road must integrate the circulation of autonomous vehicles, via appropriate instrumentation, which makes it possible to analyze in real-time the data transmitted and received by vehicles and infrastructures.
We will look at all the connectivity aspects, ''what connectivity and what type of network to choose according to your need?'' - optical fibre, cellular technology, LPWAN, Wifi, NFC, RFID or even the 5G network.
