Internet of Things (IoT) technologies can connect vehicles and infrastructure everywhere in a city, and make it safer, smarter and operate more efficiently.
Cities, public organizations and businesses across the country want to reduce high energy and lighting costs by replacing their aging outdoor and street-lighting infrastructure. Smart lighting control is an example of how the Internet of Things can generate real financial savings by embedding intelligence and connectivity into everyday objects. Smart lighting makes outdoor lighting more efficient, safe, and affordable with open-standard control networking technology.
Smart street-lighting sensors are connected to Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. Quectel modules can control outdoor lighting that makes it easy and affordable for lighting owners to increase the efficiency, safety, and versatility of their municipal and commercial lighting systems.
Searching for a parking spot in a crowded city center can at times be annoying and time-consuming. According to researches, drivers aimlessly looking for a place to park cause up to 30 percent of all urban traffic congestion – not to mention the environmental cost and energy waste. However, a smart parking solution could solve these problems. Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) is a suitable technology for smart parking in urban areas, which can help realize the reservation and sharing of idle parking space. Quectel NB-IoT module is the key component for the innovative parking solution.
Web-based waste container and advanced forecasting system can greatly improve efficiency for waste collection fleets. It has wireless module and sensor installed in the waste containers, which can monitor whether the garbage bin is full or whether there is a potential fire, and the module will send relevant data to the backend for analysis. The system then calculates optimised collection schedules and routes, send the information to urban cleaners, and hence increase their work efficiency and save manpower cost.
Internet of Things (IoT) is empowering cities to respond quickly to demographic and economic shifts. It connects devices, vehicles and infrastructure everywhere in a city and makes it safer, smarter and operate more efficiently.
