Cisco pilots smart city technologies
Global technology company Cisco has partnered with the Government of South Australia and the City of Adelaide to pilot smart city technologies and establish the Adelaide Smart City Studio as part of its global Lighthouse City program.
Two pilot projects commenced – one to replace existing street lights with sensor-driven LED lights to demonstrate power saving and smart control capabilities, and another to deploy cameras that remotely monitor the use of on-street carparks. Other projects will address environmental monitoring and people movement.
The Smart City Studio is identifying opportunities for further projects and helps businesses, entrepreneurs and industry transform smart city inspiration into successful products and services. These new, smarter ways of doing things will contribute to a carbon neutral Adelaide.
