SMART CITY SOLUTIONS FROM INFINITE DEVICES
SmartCountr for the smart city
We developed the facility management system SmartCountr. The key to a smart city. It’s not just about recording visitor flows at entrances and exits and indoors in real time: complex smart city solutions are possible thanks to the versatile plug-and-play combinations with other sensors.
SmartCountr enables digital control and measurement of visitor flows and capacities in shopping malls, sports arenas, museums, libraries, trade fair and event rooms of all types and sizes. The scalable access management is also an important security tool for leisure pools, markets and folk festivals. The Magdeburg start-up Infinite Devices is currently developing access management in the Ice Dome: Because of the versatile plug-and-play combinations with other sensors that can be used, the system is the basis for modern smart city solutions.
The Ice Dome, for example, is equipped with networked sensors, so-called beacons. This allows movements of the guests to be detected. All visitors who want to use the diverse range of services. can be informed with push messages. Are there open, closed or crowded arena entrances? Information about waiting times at the kiosks and snack bars. Parking space sensors that enable an “intelligent search for a parking space” can be networked. The companies Park & Control (www.park-control.de) and Safe Place (www.safe-place.com) are already working with the Parking Pilot. Available parking spaces, Push notifications about the traffic situation, local transport departure times, traffic jams and alternative routes are displayed. But it goes even further: Hotel and restaurant recommendations, discount systems for loyal customers can also be connected – the possibilities are limitless. SmartCountr guarantees security, privacy and Precision indoors and outdoors – 100% GDPR compliant.
Passion for innovation: What is the potential of the Internet of Things (IoT) with artificial intelligence (AI). The Smart City concept is in its infancy: more than 7.8 billion people currently inhabit the world. In 30 years, the world population is expected to grow to 10 billion people – 75 percent of whom will probably live in urban areas. Smart City requirements will continue to grow to enhance technology-driven change and innovation in urban spaces. The focus is on the areas of Economy, People, Governance, Mobility, Environment and Living. The smart city is the answer to how to enable sustainable, efficient and socially harmonious coexistence despite increasing population density. Smart City concepts are not utopian, but reality and future!: In the USA, Asia and in our European neighbors there are many groundbreaking concepts – in Germany, unfortunately, the development is progressing more slowly. What is it?
One of the reasons why Germany ranks so far behind in the technology factor is that the country scores poorly on several criteria in the area of regulatory and technological frameworks such as start-ups, communication technology, mobile and wireless broadband. It cannot be due to know-how, because a lot is invested in research and development in Germany: When it comes to the use of robots in the areas of training, research and development, Germany takes second place worldwide. The problem is the lack of networking and a comparatively weak technological infrastructure . Both the Global Competitiveness Report of the WEF and the World Digital Competitiveness Ranking of the IMD show that Germany, with its ability to innovate, stable economy and well-developed environment for research and development, has good prerequisites for solving this shortcoming and being right at the front again to play along.
