About The Customer
The customer is the City of Oakland Department of Transportation (OakDOT). They are responsible for managing traffic safety improvement requests and ensuring equitable services in the community.
OakDOT implemented an integrated solution for prioritizing traffic safety requests in areas of need. They created a data-driven prioritization model that leverages Cityworks and ArcGIS to assign a priority score to each street segment in the community. The prioritization scores are based on three core variables: traffic collision history, land use proximity, and equity. City employees can easily filter, organize, and report on work activities by their assigned prioritization scores.

Turning A Stadium Into A Smart Building
Honeywell created what it called the “intelligent system” for the National Stadium in Beijing, China, turning the venue for the opening and closing events at the 2008 Summer Olympics into a “smart building.” Designed by highly controversial artist Ai Weiwei, the “Bird’s Nest” remains one of the most impressive feats of stadium architecture in the world. The 250,000 square meter structure housed more than 100,000 athletes and spectators at a time. To accommodate such capacity, China turned to Honeywell’s EBI Integrated Building Management System to create an integrated “intelligent system” for improved building security, safety and energy efficiency.
