Smart & Safe Cities
What is a ‘Smart City’? There is not one definition that defines a Smart City. For many city leaders the term has become incremental for technology that makes cities work better or more efficiently.
According the United Nations, by 2030 about 60% of the worldwide population will live in urban areas, the demographic transition from rural areas to cities. Urbanisation means more centralised, socialised and efficient production and consumption, therefore integrated and complex urban management are required.
The reality is Smart Cities don’t just happen. Together with Hexagon (our technology provider), we believe cities must be shaped. Collection of data, technology and connected systems are crucial in shaping Smart Cities.
For us shaping Smart Cities rely on three core fundamentals – Digital, Safe and Connected!
- DIGITAL first
Smart cities need to see everything, everywhere, with the ability to extract insight and relevance with confidence and speed.
- Always SAFE
Cities need an integrated, coordinated approach to improving security, safety and quality of life.
- Absolutely CONNECTED
Cities need to bring simplicity to synchronicity, creating an autonomous system of systems and reach their full potential – digital, safe, connected, efficient, clean and thriving.
