Standing still equals going down for the smart industry

Standing still equals going down for the smart industry 620 380 Remoticom BV

As an export countrty, our economy can only grow if we start to produce. So we need to speed up Smart City developments.

“Currently, we are making the transition towards the fourth industrial revelution, with IT and digitization”, says Dezentjé Hamming-Bluemink, Smart Industry and FME chairman. “As a result, production becomes more customized and the business model is being shifted to service rather than sales.

The Future of Smart Cities & Government

The Future of Smart Cities & Government 1500 750 Remoticom BV

Smart cities are going to be a brand new world, connecting all devices with the Internet of Things (IoT), managing traffic, residential buildings and offices, as well as retail spaces and even schools! Imagine a completely smart city with devices and sensors in every public object – traffic lights sending messages to cars, and cars transmitting to public transport, where driverless cars will move around and make car accidents minimal.

Not only static objects will become connected but we will also drive in automated robot cars in a city that lives on its own.

Doing so, the report explains, will save energy, reduce traffic and congestion, create more sustainable and competitive cities and bolster American innovation and competitiveness more broadly.

The Rise of the Smart City

The Rise of the Smart City 2860 1510 Remoticom BV

Cities have a way to go before they can be considered geniuses. But they’re getting smart pretty fast.

In just the past few years, mayors and other officials in cities across the country have begun to draw on the reams of data at their disposal—about income, burglaries, traffic, fires, illnesses, parking citations and more—to tackle many of the problems of urban life. Whether it’s making it easier for residents to find parking places, or guiding health inspectors to high-risk restaurants or giving smoke alarms to the households that are most likely to suffer fatal fires, big-data technologies are beginning to transform the way cities work.
