Smart City: At My Ventures

Smart Infrastructure & Smart Utility  => Efficiency. Maintenance.

Electricity. Water. Road & Transportation.

Smart connected “Systems”

[e.g., Smoke sensors in buildings connected to the Fire department, leading to quicker responses in case of an emergency]

Smart management of City “Resources”

Traffic, Parking, etc.

Large Scale Engineering   #LargeScaleEngineering

Digital Displays

=> Access to “City Services”

Examples:

Transportation, Metro-train, “On-demand Cars” etc.

=> When City Officials and National Leaders want to allocate budgets for “Smart City”, they look for Technologies that are visible, so that people can instantly identify the City as a “Smart City”.

“Digital Displays” with access to “City Services”, are one of the technologies that can play this role. The Spanish City of Barcelona embodies this concept.

Consulting to “City Governments”

“Services” built utilizing Data.

Disease outbreak Prediction & Control

with full respect to Citizens’ Privacy.
