CeBIT exhibitor Advantech at stand S25 has deep expertise in data gathering sensors. Turning an ordinary city into an intelligent city involves aggregation of all the individual systems that make up the real infrastructure under the wireless umbrella of a cloud-based infrastructure.
An important feature of all cloud-based systems are intelligent management functions for equipment and devices. For example signage administrators used to send staff to regularly check digital signage equipment located in public places but now such equipment can be remotely controlled over the network.
Also public institutions could authorise some of their management tasks such as traffic intersection monitoring to system builders and service providers so as to optimise resources and achieve the most efficient oepration.
Public and private cloud systems will empower the digital cities of the future, and industrial clouds are the final piece of the puzzle. They will help enable more diverse smarter functionality, helping us all benefit and prosper in the intelligent city.
