The solution can ensure a rich analyses of the city’s energy needs, provide power consumption analysis on regular intervals and facilitate graphic reports to pinpoint any abnormal energy activities as well as past and future energy trends. Here, data collected from sensors on the eNlight Cloud can be used to create a smart grid consisting of Smart Meters that monitor and manage the flow of electricity from all power generation sources to meet the varying electricity demands of its end-users. With Smart Metering, Smart Grid, Energy Storage & Load Management, Charging Stations and more we can keep your Smart City energy efficient and always POWERED ON!
Data-driven systems enabled by ESDS Cloud can help Smart Cities reduce traffic deaths, bring efficiency in tracking crime, provide emergency policing and emergency response by capturing data through sensors and processing it in real time. Data can be used to predict criminally active areas and also to protect citizens during emergencies. Sensors deployed across railway stations can provide real time data on crowd management so as to avoid dangerous over-crowding scenarios that frequently occur in developing nations. Similarly, gunshot sensors can provide authorities with real time information on criminal activities to enable time policing.
With clients like Nashik Traffic Police Commiserate, Matrix Telecom & Security and others ESDS is already moving towards enabling a Smart Public Safety infrastructure.
ESDS Cloud can accelerate the process of eLearning wherein students can access tutorials and all learning material anytime and anywhere employing ubiquitous devices. Similarly, the ESDS’ Smart City cloud and its vast reach can enable School Management, Cross-Institutional Sharing and Research as well as address the problems of Distance Learning. In a Use Case scenario, teachers can upload their class tutorials, assignments and tests on the cloud server which students will be able to access via Internet using computers and other electronic devices both at home and college 24*7. Our Smart City Cloud Computing platform will make it possible for the teachers to identify problem areas in which students tend to make mistakes, by analysing students’ study records. The same method can be used to collaborate with other students and studies in research academia across universities.
Information generated through big-data analytics on the ESDS Cloud will become the Sun of the IT-enabled healthcare solar system. This information is integrated and connected to a platform where seamless exchange of data can take place. ESDS’ Smart City Cloud can serve as this platform where digital emergency response can be generated, digital health records can be maintained so that patients and doctors are on the same page of treatment and paperless appointments can be made possible. Moreover, diagnostics and monitoring of remote patients can be done through tech-enabled devices through this cloud amongst a host of other activities.
ESDS’ Smart City Cloud solutions can help cities use technology to alleviate pain points and make commuting as easy as a pie. Read smart parking, traffic management, fleet tracking, road condition sensing and more. Passenger information systems provide real time information to passengers using a public transport system. Usually the expected time of arrival (ETA) is displayed on electronic sign boards at the bus stands, Metro Rail platforms or the Airports and Railway stations. Real-time parking management systems also provide the information related to available parking lots through a publically displayed electronic sign board. IOT sensors across the city send real time data to the cloud which stores, processes and sends data to relevant information management systems.
Smart Buildings are going to be an essential factor in Smart Cities and they are largely defined as those that use cloud-based computing like ESDS’ Smart City Cloud to integrate all aspects of the building and provide an enhanced living experience for the occupants. Systems like security and surveillance, Heating, Ventilation and Cooling (HVAC as well as water, parking and lighting management can be assimilated on the ESDS cloud through sensors and other IoT devices to ensure complete control and management through single dashboard, anywhere and everywhere.
ESDS’ Smart City Cloud platform delivers smarter water management through insights from data to help authorities manage storage & distribution, quality monitoring, waste water treatment and flood control measures. From handling water pressure to detecting leaks/threats and optimising water consumption, the ESDS Smart City Cloud uses advanced data management, visualization, correlation and collaboration technologies. This transforms the vast amounts of disparate data received from various devices like metering systems, assets and stakeholders into actionable information that can guide executive and operational decision-making.
ESDS’ Smart City Cloud Water Management solution can also transform the agricultural sector by using data insights gained from sensors for alerting farmers about irregular weather conditions so that they can take proactive steps to protect their crops. Similarly, it can also alert the irrigation sprinklers in farms in the absence of farmers.
A cloud-based smart waste management mechanism can serve several purposes like waste sensing & collection, sorting, recycling, disposal and others. In a use case scenario, waste bins are equipped with sensors, capable of notifying their waste level status and upload the status to the ESDS Smart City Cloud. The stakeholders including officials are able to access the desired data from the cloud. This data is used to redefine the waste collection schedule to maximize the collection. Location of vehicles and waste bins are used to find the shortest possible collection route for each truck to establish fuel efficiency. The whole process can be monitored centrally and thus provides a high quality service to the citizens of a Smart City.
