Henderson, Nevada, has partnered with Cox Communications to pilot its smart technology in the city’s Water Street District Innovation Corridor.

 

The Internet of Things (IoT) business line of the telecommunications company will trial new water system control, lighting controls and parking and traffic management solutions.

 

Smart community solutions

 

The objective of the pilot is to measure the overall impact and value created by these smart community solutions, and Cox Communications intends to “aggregate critical data” to make actionable decisions on resource management.

 

“When people think of Henderson, they should envision a forward-thinking, forward-moving smart city,” said Robert Herr, chief infrastructure officer and assistant city manager, Henderson.

 

“We are dedicated to digital transformation and investing in technology to better our communities and working with Cox is an example of that. With the partnership of Cox and its IoT solutions, the Water Street District project will succeed in attracting people and businesses to put down roots here.”

 

The Water Street District is considered the historic heart of Henderson and is located approximately 15 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip. With the forthcoming pilot, the area will soon become an innovation exploration environment for the Cox2M smart communities platform solutions.

 

“Forward-thinking cities are investing in infrastructure upgrades to meet the increased demands of their residents.”

 

The one-year pilot will begin in early 2020 and may include:

  • crowd counting and vehicle detection to improve parking and provide greater public safety during events
  • smart water meters for greater water conservation and operational cost savings
  • smart lighting controls, which will lower energy, maintenance and operational costs
  • data analytics to improve economic development efforts, inter-departmental communication and reporting in the city.

“Energy and water conservation are vital components of sustainable cities, added Barak Weinisman, vice president, Cox2M and smart communities.

 

“Forward-thinking cities are investing in infrastructure upgrades to meet the increased demands of their residents. We are eager to help Henderson realise the benefits of tracking their energy and water usage through smart applications.”

 

Incorporated in 1953, Henderson is Nevada’s second-largest city with more than 317,000 residents.
