A smart city is an urban area that uses different types of electronic methods and sensors to collect data.
Discover what’s driving change and how you can start innovating now.
Fast forward to 2050 and 70% of the world’s population is expected to live in urban areas.
With many cities already groaning under the pressure, meeting the needs of 9.8 billion people will present huge challenges. Subsequently, architects and planners tasked with the job of transforming densely populated areas into mobile, sustainable, uber-efficient and resilient living spaces are turning to technology to create smart cities that sustain a high quality of life.
From apps that help you avoid traffic jams or find parking spots to city-wide energy-efficient lights that change in response to what’s going on around them, the opportunities are infinite for innovative players in both the public and private sectors. And it’s happening now.
Question is, are you ready?
From food to furniture, gifts to gazebos, there’s not much we can’t buy online and have delivered these days.
Better still, it can be at our front door in what feels like a split second. We’ve grown so used to this dizzying speed that we may find ourselves staring aghast at our screens, frustrated if delivery dates exceed 24 hours. Oh, and delivery is usually free. But is this really sustainable for distributors, online retailers, and the cities struggling with gridlock, road safety, and poor air quality?
How can technology transform delivery logistics to become increasingly efficient, adaptable, and eco-friendly?
Continuous and real-time visibility of assets, from Ordering to Final Product Delivery.
$2B+ in long-term inventory carrying costs due to inefficient outbound supply chain visibility, decision making, and prediction capabilities.
We transformed Caterpillar’s supply chain & logistics visibility capabilities by upgrading their infrastructure with IoT powered insights. In less than 90 days, Caterpillar had tapped into unparalleled predictive capabilities and real-time data tracking. Within the first twelve months, they could remove up to $1B in outbound supply chain slack.
