Opinions, think-pieces, articles and observations around smart cities and the future of urban living.
In recent years innovation in the smart city tech landscape has enabled cities to deploy established pilots. But these pilots have stayed just that, pilots, as the cost and complexity of having numerous vertically integrated applications has hindered cash-strapped local authorities. As such, AI-driven solutions have evolved to enable data collection on a whole new level. This year's hot topic goes beyond data collection to the realms of data ownership and data trust. How can cities use data collected from smart city sensors to become more sustainable, all while retaining transparency with citizens? Here is our list of ten events to look out for, touching on the latest in technology developments and policy-making.
Last week at the Abu Dhabi Municipal Lighting conference, Telensa co-founder Will Gibson presented on the potential for wireless outdoor lighting controls to act as the foundation for a range of smart city applications.
At Smart City Expo this year, Telensa and Microsoft demonstrated the power of a platform approach to smart city applications and data insights.
Over the past couple of months Telensa has been hosting Smart City Forums, inviting local authorities and others in the smart lighting industry to discuss the evolution and future of smart cities. It’s been a pleasure to see new and familiar faces and we’re thankful to all those that contributed and participated. Below is a recap of the forum held at Sony’s UK Tech Centre in Pencoed, Wales, where all Telensa products are made:
