Smart Infrastructures for Smart Cities

The Time is Now!

Smart Cities add digital intelligence to the urban world and use it to solve public problems and achieve a higher quality of life. Powered by networks of connected devices and sensors, smart applications and data analysis tools translate raw data into alerts, insight, and actions which benefits cities, companies and the public. Cellular networks and IoT are crucial to realize the smart city vision. They provide dependable and cybersecure hardware and connectivity to make these systems function. Nybsys 4G/5G solutions along with Industry 4.0 Automation solutions fit in very well to enable scalable smart city deployments.

Why Smart City?

The concept of being “connected” is no longer restricted to electronic devices such as computers and mobile phones. Connectivity is now ubiquitous, on devices large and small, playing a crucial role in people’s lives. In the new era of the Internet of Things (IoT), our daily experiences are being enhanced by real-time information and control of ‘things’ that are all around us. For cities to reap the many benefits of being “smart”, intelligent connected infrastructures built with the help of IoT is a must. A smart city will have a cyber-physical system that employs data collection, storage, processing, and visualization to achieve efficiency, sustainability, productivity, and safety goals. Once such infrastructure is put in place, it allows a city to take advantage of ongoing technological advancements and ultimately improve citizens’ day-to-day lives. By 2025, the smart city market might be worth $1.56 billion worldwide. NybSys solution components are already being used in multiple smart city use-cases. The comprehensive suite of IoT solutions from Nybsys can be used to create a smart metropolitan area with enhanced quality of life for its citizens.

Smart City Solutions

For a city to be considered "smart," it must employ smart urban infrastructure solutions. Nybsys technology provides building blocks for many such solutions. Here are a few instances of smart infrastructures solutions offered by NybSys.

Smart Waste Management

Cities have serious environmental challenges in the form of garbage collection and disposal. Because improper waste management can damage water sources and transmit infections, it poses a significant threat to public health. Nybsys offers a solution to address this that combines AI and IoT. It offers authorities in charge of trash management, a better long-term waste management strategy.

For more efficient trash management, NYBSYS builds ultrasonic-sensor-based systems called “Smart Bin” for keeping a close eye on waste management. By doing so, we are able to provide a complete remote view of all different kinds of waste containers and assist in the planning of collection routes accordingly.

When you have a Smart-Bin Level Indicator & Intelligent Monitoring system in place, you know exactly which bins need repairing and when. You can also map out the best time & routes for collection and have them sent straight to your waste collector. With bin level indicators, overfilling and emergency call-outs become a thing of the past, while significant savings are made on driver time, vehicle wear-and-tear, and fuel consumption.

Smart Drinking Water Management & Monitoring

Water management is a challenge for every municipality. Due to a lack of reliable water management systems, a significant amount of this precious resource is being wasted. Smart city solutions powered by AI can enhance water efficiency and reduce wastage.

NybSys is collaborating with organizations whose mission is to provide access to clean water for all. Our most recent development is the introduction of clean water dispensing machines. To ensure that people always have access to clean water, we have developed the Water ATM. 

The Water ATM is a prepaid operational system that consists of both hardware and software. We issue Water cards that can be used to receive water supplies. Those in need of water may show their card at a Water ATM; the machine will verify the balance on file and distribute water accordingly. 

When a customer inserts their water card into the Water ATM, the iG100 (a gateway developed by NybSys) reads the card, gets account information from a remote server, and dispenses water from a water dispenser.

Smart Roads & Parking System

Smart Roads using IoT is a novel approach to enhance road infrastructure efficiency and quality. When sensors and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies are used on highways, they make driving simpler and safer for everyone. Drivers may get up-to-the-minute updates on the state of the roads and the weather. As a bonus, these systems can assist drivers in avoiding collisions and locating open parking spots.

NybSys provides essential sensors and gateway support for these types of smart roadway infrastructures. Smart parking management systems use our in-ground vehicle detecting sensors. These devices assist vehicles find mall or city center parking spots quickly. A central parking management system sends vacant parking places to nearby vehicles using local signal processors. This decreases car emissions, parking lot congestion, and driver stress.

Smart Power Management

Without a constant power supply, a city cannot be considered smart. With the help of the Internet of Things, smart grids and smart meters may be used to build a more reliable T&D (transmission and distribution) infrastructure. Further, with the help of IoT, power generation companies may improve their energy production operations to keep up with the ever-evolving needs of their customers.

NybSys uses IoT-embedded sensors to monitor power plant efficiency and individual assets, such as transformers. Equipment uptime and downtime can be better managed using real-time data. If machinery suddenly stops working, an alarm is issued to the proper authorities so they may fix it or replace it. As a result, the Utility can promptly undertake CBM (condition-based maintenance) on assets to keep the lights on across the city.

Smart Traffic Management

Congestion in city streets is a severe issue for urban transportation systems worldwide. Congestion is caused by an increase in cars and a lack of adequate road infrastructure.

The NybSys IoT sensor system infused with artificial intelligence can help address traffic jams. Cameras powered by artificial intelligence may monitor traffic in real-time and relay that information to a traffic control center, which can subsequently change signal times to minimize bottlenecks.

An improvement in traffic flow would have a positive effect on the economy in addition to reducing stress on drivers. By reducing traffic delays, cities may also save money on fuel and labor costs.

Public Transportation

It is possible to learn trends in people’s transportation habits using data collected by Internet of Things sensors. Using this information, public transit providers may improve ridership, security, and reliability. Smart public transportation systems may integrate data from several sources, such as ticket sales and traffic reports, to do a more thorough analysis.

The Nybsys Malin solution offers a dependable network that powers similar applications. Additionally, the Nybsys Sentra PTT solution enhances transportation personnel’s situational awareness, coordination, and employee safety by providing dependable and robust communications.

Public Safety Management

Smart city technologies based on the Internet of Things provide real-time monitoring, analytics, and decision-making capabilities to improve public safety. Public safety systems can anticipate future crime situations by combining and analyzing data from sound sensors and CCTV cameras placed across the city and data from social media feeds. This helps law enforcement personnel apprehend or locate suspected criminals.

The Nybsys Sentra PTT App and Dispatch, powered by the Malin private wireless solution, enhances the capability of public safety personnel and relevant command and control centers to communicate with one another, share information securely between mobile devices, and increase situational awareness in high-risk situations.

Street Lighting Solution

The use of IoT helps smart cities simplify and reduce the cost of street light control and maintenance. Sensor-equipped streetlights that are linked to a cloud-based management system can better adjust illumination schedules to meet the needs of each individual lighting zone.

To optimize the lighting schedule, NybSys Smart Lighting Solutions collect data on lighting conditions, pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and other contextual factors, such as, weather, public transportation service hours, holidays, and the time of day. 

The system then “tells” a streetlight to adjust its brightness, color temperature, or state of operation in response to the surrounding environment.
