IBM Smarter Cities exhibition
We need to think innovative solutions in terms of the challenges that cities – and thus the entire society – are facing. Our Smarter Cities exhibition gives you an idea of how smart IT enables cities to connect data across systems, thus helping them to make smarter decisions that benefit you and me, our economy, safety, and the environment.
IBM Intelligent Operations Center (IOC)
The IBM Intelligent Operations Center (IOC) for Smarter Cities helps agencies prepare for problems before they arise and coordinate and manage problems as they occur, to enhance the ongoing effciency of city operations. The IOC offers integrated data visualization, real-time collaboration and deep analytics. Explore how cities can share information instantly across agency lines to accelerate problem response and improve project coordination.
Efficient and coordinated transport systems
The car, air, and train traffic curve is rising faster than the expansion of the infrastructure. State-of-the-art traffic and transport solutions from IBM, however, make it possible to create an overview of private and public transport, balance the traffic load, and optimize logistics as well as the flow of people and goods moving from one place to another. The supply of transport options is improved for the users while reducing costs and CO2 emissions.
Crime is fought with real-time data
Memphis Police Department has reduced the crime rate by 30% over a five-year period by means of predictive analytics from IBM. Explore how quickly the police can draw a pattern of the movements of a suspect by comparing real-time data and send data from the police car directly to the police station and thus solve crime much faster.
Smart water management minimizes consumption and pollution
By means of sensors and smart meters, IBM creates an overview of where there is a risk of flooding and how the water can be redirected along alternative channels. In Rotterdam, IBM contributes to smart water management by means of a monitoring and warning system that collects real-time data about channels, water level, and weather.
Smart electricity management in businesses
Together with IBM, GridManager has developed the energy management tool, GridPortal, which makes it possible for businesses to achieve considerable energy savings. At the same time, it makes it possible for the energy companies to redistribute the renewable energy that is in the grid here and now. The users of the GridPortal are able to monitor the energy consumption and leave it to the system to store and use electricity when the price is right and turn off appliances when they are not being used.
