Creating a thoughtful, smarter and sustainable New Zealand
The Customer and the Challenge
Smart Technology to Improve Public Safety, Energy Efficiency and Sustainability
Smart City is leading the shift towards cities of the future by using smart technology to improve public safety, energy efficiency, sustainability, and overall quality of life. They use smart devices to capture and report real-time data about people around our cities. The work that they do and the Smart City technologies that they provide are fast becoming essential to the communities that use them, to transform the way they live and work.
Transforming cities into technology-enhanced urban areas
Smart City was established to help towns and cities achieve their community and business outcomes. They believe things can and should be done smarter – but not with a quick fix. This is achieved by taking a long-term approach with local government & commercial clients, working closely together to understand how they can help them be more effective, efficient, and get things done more easily in their own local context.
They currently offer solutions in waste, transport, connected communities and dashboarding.
Managing our waste streams in a smarter way yields powerful results
Smart City has partnered with Mr. Fill, the new solution for waste collection in Smart Cities. Smart City’s SmartWaste offering cuts rubbish collection costs while reducing litter and pollution thanks to it’s solar-powered internal self compacting system.
The bins used have a compacting force of 600kg – meaning regardless of the type of rubbish in the bin, the compaction ratio is 1:5 – 1:7 (5 to 7 times the amount of rubbish). This means the bins are emptied 5 to 7 times less – resulting in a reduction in operational carbon emissions and operational expenditure.
Solar Powered Urban Furniture for Smart and Sustainable Cities
The SmartBench is transforming cities using new multifunctional Smart City infrastructure allowing people to charge devices and get connected.
The bench is solar powered and provides a Wifi Hot Spot and wireless charging.
The environmental sensors in the bench provide various environmental insights allowing councils to track the health of streets using real time and historical data. Analyze patterns and take measures to improve the air quality down to individual street level.
The previously unavailable insights generated via smart infrastructure will enables councils to work towards more efficient and sustainable operational models.
