Excerpt from 28 page White Paper covering Connected Cities and Smart Kiosks and their growing acceptance.
Smart Cities can be characterized in many ways, but at the concept’s core are efforts by municipalities to use information and communication technologies to collect and disseminate information, improve the ways cities work, and bridge a digital divide in urban centers. In short, smart cities initiatives exist to improve the quality of life for citizens.
Smart cities are about data generated by systems and sensors, and the platforms that manage, use and react to what the data says. These projects use connected infrastructure that’s optimized by “listening” and reacting to what’s happening with things like road, mass transport and electrical systems.
Smart Kiosk Endpoints
Chris Miller, LG-MRI Marketing Director adds, “the new generation of smart kiosks consider not only what shows up on the screen but also the ways that these connected endpoints can support the development and delivery of other IoT and connectivity-based solutions.”
