Smart City Operations

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.

    • The non-smart legacy surveillance platform lacks video processing capability, resulting in unclear images and low work efficiency • The existing information systems are isolated, making it difficult to centrally manage video surveillance products and achieve multi-platform interconnection and collaboration. As a result, intelligent analysis of massive data and effective data mining are impeded.
    Kiunsys: A New Level of Urban Freight Control via RFID
    The municipality of Verona had the exigency to enforce the regulations for commercial vehicles for into the historic city center to reduce traffic, vehicles with permits dedicated to city logistics within certain hours often exceeded the permitted period of stay inside the congestion zone. In addition Verona had the goal to eliminate the falsification of disabled parking passes and increase the on street enforcement. The historic city center of Verona was already equipped with a congestion area system comprising of video cameras, but the ratification of the system limited the functionality of the system. It was not possible to measure time of ingress and egress nor the duration of stay of single vehicles. Once entered, it was not possible to verify if the vehicle spent more than the consented period of time inside the city leading to an increased congestion. For disabled people, the existing solution led to various problems: to access to the city center handicapped drivers or passengers had to inform the municipality up to 48 hours in advance for avoiding a fine and falsificated copies of disabled permits (CUDE) were a frequent problem. A new solution needed to cover all this aspects, while digitizing the related processes to increase efficiency and reduce the workload at the cities helpdesks.
