Smart Cities: Cities that have their own operating system

That's it Hull England is one of the smart cities that started using its own operating system (operating system) to bring them all together date and manage its resources more effectively.

Using the sensors Internet of Things (IoT) distributed around the city to provide real-time data, Hull City Council says it will be able to better control street lighting, garbage collection, parking and congestion, at a reduced cost .

Smart Cities

The council worked with a local telecommunications service provider, Connexin, based on Cisco's Cinetic Cities for Cities platform, a software that allows city operators to view and manage data from many sensors and from a single panel.

Furqan Alamgir, founder of Connexin, said that smart cities wanted to create a central operating system to avoid having too many systems to manage.

Smart Cities

The platform, called CityOS, pulls and gathers information from a number of different IoT sensors, then transmits it to city operators. This means that data is easier to see and can be used to better manage resources.

Councilor Daren Hale said the system gathers information that allows the entire city to manage public resources in real time.

This does not mean that the City Council will depend entirely on it technology and that traffic lights or waste collection will collapse if one day CityOS has a problem.

The sensors installed inside the containers monitor the waste levels and the data are used to determine the optimal waste collection times or more efficient collection routes.

Alamgir said it was nice to see the UK innovate.
