HARMAN's robust portfolio of Smart City infrastructure products can transform any city into a smart city, opening the door for a vast array of services and applications that mobility users and pedestrians can benefit from by making their daily lives and commutes safer and more efficient.
With more vehicles on the road today than ever before, safety on the road and getting places efficiently has become a top priority. To enable a smart city environment, it is essential for vehicles on the road to be equipped with a V2X communication module and the supporting V2X software stack. A key technology is also the roadside unit, or RSU, that allows sharing of vital, real-time location information across devices like vehicles and pedestrians’ mobile phones.
HARMAN supplies all this today through its Telematics Control Units, Smart Antenna, and HARMAN Savari MobiWAVE and StreetWave product offerings. Additionally, to accurately convert the large amounts of V2X data coming from vehicles, roadside units, and pedestrians into actionable real-time alerts across a wide area, HARMAN also offers Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) software, called HARMAN Savari MECWAVE.
One easy-to-use dashboard for users to track facility management applications in real-time.
Smart-bin sensors on trash bins around a city are wirelessly connected to an RSU like StreetWAVE to send real-time status updates via the RSU to the cloud, where the data is visible through the app.
The dashboard allows status tracking, management, responsibility assignment, and assignment status of an entire team. Smart asset tracking allows the team to save time on unnecessary check-ins and optimized routes.
“Energy Utilization dashboard” also offers efficiency and supports energy conservation.
Smart lighting sensors in city streetlights are wirelessly connected to a HARMAN RSU like StreetWAVE. These streetlamps can then send real-time lighting and power consumption updates via the RSU to the application in the cloud, where the city manager can see the data in the Energy Utilization dashboard in the Smart-City-as-a-Platform app.
Data for surges, defects, and malfunctions is all aggregated in the app and can be assessed and dealt with efficiently to maximize efficiency of the lights across the city.
