Introducing the Intel®-based Bosch Air Quality Micro-Climate Monitoring System
Improving air quality is directly in line with Intel’s mission to improve the lives of every person on the planet, so we are pleased to announce the launch of the new Intel®-based Bosch Air Quality Micro Climate Monitoring System (MCMS). MCMS enables governments, industries and communities to measure, view, correlate, and analyze data from multiple spatially spread devices, set threshold limits for critical measurements, and effectively communicate the information to multiple stakeholders to make real-time air quality decisions.
AT&T Smart Cities Digital Infrastructure with Current, powered by GE, is built on Intel® technology and provides a universal intelligent node that can be installed on any streetlight. Utilizing built-in cameras, microphones and environmental sensors, these intelligent nodes can gather data and disseminate it across a horizontal platform that all city departments can connect to and use.
With 30% of traffic congestion within cities attributable to drivers trying to find available parking, increasing the availability of parking and assisting drivers in locating open parking spots helps reduce traffic, pollution, and parking violations. Siemens Smart Parking System, featuring Intel® software and services, can help drivers find and pay for available parking using their smart phone.
The new Intel® architecture-based E2E solution for smart transportation, developed by Dahua Technology Co., Ltd. meets the new demands of the smart city in traffic management and delivers excellent performance in reliability, scalability, security, advancement, and openness. Already deployed in China, this solution integrates video data for traffic management, monitoring, and safety.
Intel, CIVIQ Smartscapes, and Intersection join forces to deploy the On the Go Travel Station, a dynamic public kiosk funded through targeted advertising that provides a wealth of information to riders at subway stations across New York City. As cities become smarter, public kiosks can change citizen’s lives by instantly providing route and travel information, alerts for public safety & security, and even access to free high-speed WiFi.
Serving the Complex Demands of Modern Cities
Smart cities include services and capabilities across multiple areas. When these are connected, intelligent, and manageable, the outcomes can be significant—from lower power consumption to safer citizens.
Connected solutions can increase access not only for users—but also for hackers and threats. The potentially large footprint of an end-to-end solution for IoT can raise an organization’s exposure to security breaches. Helping to mitigate risk, Intel offers advanced security technologies for devices, gateways, and network, and cloud infrastructure. Intel offerings include multilayered protection at both the hardware and software layers, technologies to safeguard identities, and data, increased security for connected networks, and infrastructure, and much more.
Smart cities are deploying solutions that use sensors, gateways, machine-to-machine (M2M) technology, wireless connectivity, and both edge, and cloud processing to extract more value from data. As cities modernize, they are implementing connected technologies that gather, filter, integrate, and analyze data from multiple sources. This data provides a continuous and often near-real-time portrait of systems and behavior to inform safety and security, operations, infrastructure management, and services. Data-based insight is helping to generate new revenue, increase citizen, and visitor satisfaction, create jobs, and reduce costs.
Scalable, Standardized Building Blocks
Intel’s broad portfolio of secure, open, scalable building blocks helps speed time to market for solutions that deliver actionable intelligence from the edge to the cloud. A proven, industry-standard IoT platform provides reference models and a portfolio of products based on foundational technologies that let cities connect, secure, and manage valuable data from existing business assets that were previously unconnected or from new smart and connected things.
