Smart city operations include the range of solutions required to enable smart city concepts by integrating Information and Communication Technology with senors and connected devices to optimize the efficiency of city operations and services. Smart city technology allows city officials to interact with both community members and city infrastructure and to monitor situation in the city in real time. Benefits for city managers include Tracking events in the city in real time, managing congestion, improving operational efficiency, reducing emergency response times, and enabling remote management. Modern solutions will aim to integrate all city data into a single dashboard. Both historical and current KPIs are measured to conduct performance reviews and gap analysis, and to plan future infrastucture and service investments.
Vienna City Council needed a new way to deliver a better service, higher quality care and more transparency while cutting costs and minimizing bureaucracy. The chosen solution must have the following requirements: consolidation of multiple data within a single management system, a user-friendly interface, compliance with new regulatory requirements, cultural sensitivity to the differing requirements of multiple faiths, and more transparency for tracking cases.
With 133,000 inhabitants that receives more than 2 million tourists a year, this seasonal influx complicated access to the Ibiza's centre and caused congestion of vehicles looking for parking in La Marina. This affected the well-being of the population and even had a negative impact on trade and the image of the area. The project that we implemented for the local government sought to: -Speed up parking in La Marina. -Reduce vehicle flow to the centre. -Improve the quality of life and satisfaction of residents and tourists. -Promote the shopping area of the centre.
US Highway 2 at Kalispell, Montana, features a dangerous, non-signalized intersection that has been the site of numerous crashes. The two-lane, high-speed highway intersects with Springcreek Road/Dern Road and has no turn lane. The goal of the project was to improve safety at the intersection without adding lanes or installing signals. Because there is no turn lane, when eastbound cars need to turn left onto Springcreek Road they are forced to stop in the lane of travel and hope that cars approaching from behind see them and stop in time. Unfortunately, too many drivers didn’t see the stopped vehicles until it was too late, resulting in numerous crashes. The posted speed limit on that stretch of US Highway 2 is 65 mph, and the road is heavily traveled by large semis. Finally, funding issues made a build-out of the intersection unfeasible.
