What is a Smart City?
By bringing open data and technology together, a city infrastructure and local community can be enhanced by improving local services allowing residents to enjoy a better quality of life.
A smart city is the convergence of multiple information and communication technology (ICT) and internet of things (IoT) to manage key services including (but not limited to):
ICT enables city officials to interact directly with the community and aggregate data from multiple sources. Through the use of sensors integrated with real-time monitoring systems, data is pulled in from the community and devices. Individuals in the community can prioritise what’s important and the technology allows the feedback loop between the city, the community and local businesses and services.
Aralia Systems Ltd has partnered with Design 4 Social Change to bring together real-time big data analytics and little data citizen engagement platforms.
This innovation tool allows individuals to engage directly with city security administrators in the identification and verification of potential threat and incidents in real time.
Combines bottom-up citizen data (little data) with top-down statistical / historical city data (big data) to co-create smarter cities in real time.
Changify is developed for public infrastructure service providers to solve urban challenges by aggregating ad prioritising local issues together with communities in order to gauge or improve citizen service satisfaction.
Aralia’s software incorporates real time cataloguing of sensor data, including video, automatic reporting of alarms, filtered through user-defined actionable intelligence and rapid SQL-based querying.
The comprehensive querying capabilities of Aralia software, together with 3D capture of geospatial information, facilitates correlation of data, threat ranking and effective deployment of resources. The distributed architecture uses the processing power of the entire network to execute operations on the database; intuitive query building tools are available to the operator, providing rapid and accurate situational awareness.
