What’s a smart city? Technology research company Gartner defines it as a city in which “multiple sectors co-operate to achieve sustainable outcomes through the analysis of contextual real-time information shared among sector-specific information and operational technology systems.”
In a nutshell, the “real-time information” is big data; the “sharing” is done by all the intelligent devices that populate the Internet of Things transformed by the byNode to create a secure Building Internet Of Things.
The outcome? An intelligent system that makes a city more livable, more economically competitive, more sustainable.
Imagine connected city grids that keep the lights on with increasing efficiency, intelligent wind farms that produce clean energy, and car and rail traffic solutions that reduce congestion and air pollution.
