Project was centred in the ‘Corniche Area’ and used low power wide-area network technology
Abu Dhabi has completed a “wide-ranging” smart city project with its partner Technology Strategies Middle East (TSME) in which Cumulocity IoT is used as the foundation Internet of Things (IoT) platform.
The Abu Dhabi City Municipality launched the pilot phase of a five-year project for smart cities and artificial intelligence (AI), called the Zayed Smart City project, earlier this year to validate key use cases and its viability.
The city-wide project is designed to digitally transform the environmental, social, and financial aspects of urban life to improve the lives of the United Arab Emirates capital city’s citizens and visitors.
The proof-of-concept spanned sensors, actuators, and Cumulocity IoT to connect key components across the city. The project was centred in Abu Dhabi’s ‘Corniche Area’ and used low power wide-area network (LPWAN) technologies to transport sensor data from across the city to a central office, where Cumulocity IoT used code-free integration capabilities to monitor and manage the use-cases.
“The project envisions the future, drives innovation, and provides a ‘best-in-the-world’ infrastructure”
“The smart cities project stems from Abu Dhabi’s pioneering vision and is designed to digitally transform the environmental, social, and financial aspects of urban life to improve the lives of Abu Dhabi’s citizens and visitors,” said Ahmed Abdul Samad Al Hamadi, director of IT, Abu Dhabi Municipality.
“The project envisions the future, drives innovation, and provides a ‘best-in-the-world’ infrastructure.”
The 10 use-cases include air quality monitoring, asset tracking and logistics monitoring, structural health monitoring, water metering, palm tree weevil detection, street lighting, smart parking, waste management, water storage tank monitoring, and swimming pool monitoring.
“The Abu Dhabi City Municipality is one of the leading pioneers of smart city innovation. They have developed a realistic plan, tested their plans extensively, and are using data and technology to improve lives – all the key elements of a smart city,” added Bernd Gross, senior vice president, IoT and Cloud, Software AG.
“We are delighted and proud that they selected Cumulocity IoT as their IoT platform of choice.”
