Smart city technology provider Cimcon has announced several new partners to its NearSky Connect partner programme.


The programme brings together sensor/device manufacturers and application developers to make it easier for cities to specify, procure, and deploy smart city solutions.


Street pole economy


Cimcon said the partners would help the company to expand the “street pole economy”, helping to provide cities with parking and flood management and security solutions using sound detection technology.


Collectively, they will provide cities with actionable data on parking, sound, carbon dioxide and flood levels to optimise operations, maintenance and safety through a single platform.


The new partners in the programme are:


Senix Labs has developed a suite of ultrasonic transmitters to perform water monitoring with non-contact technology. Thousands of its sensors are installed in applications around the world for irrigation, stream- and sea-level monitoring, flood and tsunami warnings.


Adsum Networks has developed a smart parking monitoring system, which provides information on parking space occupancy that allows cities to efficiently manage their parking inventory, while reducing related costs and increasing parking revenue.


Sound Intelligence has developed patented sound classification solutions that make security monitoring systems proactive, enabling early detection of potential incidents, swift intervention, and in many cases, prevention of further escalation. Sound Intelligence’s technology has been deployed in thousands of applications around the world including prisons, healthcare institutes, schools, public transportation and convenience stores. Sound Intelligence analytics work with products from Cimcon’s existing partner Axis Communications.


Senva provides environmental sensors, including a CO2 sensor which will be used with the NearSky platform to provide information on a city’s greenhouse gas concentration.


“The technologies that these partners bring to the NearSky platform further enable us to expand the ‘street pole economy’, said Anil Agrawal, CEO, Cimcon. “And continue building an ecosystem of device manufacturers, network providers, system integrators, app developers and data analysts that will provide cities with the opportunity to monetise assets on or near the street light pole, while improving resident safety and providing opportunities to take advantage of new digital services.


“Together, with our partners we are maximising the potential offered by the street light pole by removing any friction that cities have historically faced in building a smart city.”
