With predictions for 2018 leading to 30% of major cities becoming “smart cities” one company is ahead of the pack. Altizon, an industrial IIoT platform company, and Novecom, an environmental monitoring and data management systems provider, announced their new integrated smart IoT solution at the Newcastle 500 Supercar race in New South Wales, Australia. The system measures the decibel levels of race cars flying around the track and allowed Novecom to broadcast the results live. Smart cities can use this technology for monitoring road and traffic conditions in real time. Vinay Nathan, CEO of Altizon said, “Together with Novecom, Altizon is committed to be a trailblazer in establishing meaningful applications that make Smart Cities work.” The future of smart cities sound like they are just around the corner.
