Parking IoT – Smart sensors can be installed cheaply in parking areas with 10 year battery life to monitor car park space availability and send this information to an app or web based dashboard live feed.
Environment Conditions – one of the goals of a smart city is to provide a healthier environment for its citizens. As such, networks of sensors are deployed across the city to monitor environmental conditions such as greenhouse gas emissions, carbon dioxide level, temperature and noise, among others. Data can be used to come up with solutions on how to reduce pollution and ensure that it is in the acceptable level
Energy – IoT-enabled smart grids allow for more efficient power distribution and improved operations for energy companies. Data from smart meters, smart sensors and other connected devices can alert the company should there be power outages, for example, and address them immediately. The system can also provide information on customers’ energy consumption and allocate resources efficiently.
Healthcare – some of the use of IoT technologies in healthcare include locating of ambulances, checking of availability online of blood as well as organs for transplant, remote monitoring of patient’s health and tracking of available beds in a hospital, among others.
