Because the US heads into Thanksgiving, and all of those other world starts to scope Black Friday deals, I’m settling in after last week’s Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona. The big event located over 18,000 attendees that reached see the latest in smart city technology from vendors and metropolitan areas which have deployed these solutions.

AvePoint was proud to participate the Microsoft Pavilion and showcase our solutions combined with the other Microsoft partners centered on making metropolitan areas more sustainable, safe, and digital.

I’d the privilege of talking with city officials, authorities officials, and partners all centered on enabling truly citizen-centric services.

Enabling Citizen-Centric Services

AvePoint labored with Microsoft and many other partners to exhibit attendees the potential for citizen centric services.

Microsoft’s Connected Vehicle demonstration highlighted how partner solutions and Microsoft Aware could work together to provide a citizen-centric reaction to a vehicle crash.

Within the demo, a vehicle crashes right into a streetlight. This sparks the vehicle airbags, and knock the streetlight over.

Sensors within the vehicle airbag, streetlight, and using their company IOT-enabled devices immediately start delivering notifications and knowledge to relevant city services departments.

This data may trigger an answer from emergency services just like an ambulance to watch the healthiness of the citizen or police officials to direct traffic and assess for just about any criminal activity.

It might also trigger non-emergency services to correct broken property like the street light.

Drones might be deployed to collect a complete spectrum of information around the accident site, which help inform emergency and repair services on the way! In this manner, metropolitan areas can deploy sources to aid and aid the citizen, whether that’s ultimately delivered by one department, or many.

AvePoint Citizen Services Leaps Into Action

AvePoint Citizen Services performed a vital role within this demonstration. The most recent form of our platform, which we debuted only at that year’s Microsoft Inspire Conference, uses Azure’s IOT integration and machine learning abilities.

Our streetlight IOT integration began something request when the light went, that your dispatcher then allotted to the right field teams.

Citizen Services directed the area team towards the correct location, and sent notifications when the repair was marked complete. Machine learning aids in ongoing streetlight maintenance, for example, supplying warnings when lights might have to go out soon, so metropolitan areas can optimize field sources.

The way forward for Citizen-Centric Services

While streetlights were the instance used a week ago – exactly the same could apply for several scenarios! Monitoring sewer systems or water mains for overflow, transit facilities for damage, or perhaps the sensors that are used in next-generation vehicles!

With this particular much deeper integration in to the Azure cloud, Citizen Services goes beyond improving citizen engagement with easy-to-use portals and ask for interfacing, we’re helping metropolitan areas become more positive – to solve challenges before they exist!

Keep tuned in the approaching days, when we’ll be discussing more videos and content, showcasing AvePoint Citizen Services!
