Smart Cities and Communities
Smart traffic and transportation systems play a vital role in dense urban environments in terms of workforce mobility and safety. Smart transport and traffic systems are comprised of intelligent management systems, smart charging for electric vehicles, and intelligent public transport systems. Most of the investments may be directed at intelligent traffic management systems that comprise of remotely placed sensors, CCTV surveillance camera systems, and ramp meters which play a crucial role in managing heavy urban traffic. These sensors, cameras, and other devices capture data and provide information to transportation authorities, city administrators, fire, and law enforcement agencies. As world populations migrate to urban areas, cities are faced with new challenges that include traffic jams, overcrowding, pollution, resource constraints, inadequate infrastructure, and the need for continuing economic growth.
Smart community grids are the largest segment of the global smart communities market driven by the increasingly urgent need to save electricity for sustainable growth in both developed and developing countries. The effective management of power systems which use solar and wind energy is helping communities reduce power consumption while minimizing cost. Infrastructure-based automated control systems help electricity suppliers reduce transmission losses and conserve electricity. Solutions such as data management, real-time analytics, communications systems, and automation technologies designed to manage smart grid architecture are helping communities to remain connected with power grids and use electricity judiciously.
