2.1 What do we offer as a platform for Smart Cities?
The rapid proliferation of IoT sensors and Smart Devices has given birth to the concept of Smart Cities, where the data collected from those devices provides greater insights into the functioning of cities and can be used to improve many aspects of city life. Very large Smart City projects such as Smart Dubai and Smart Nation in Singapore focus on the deployment of extensive IoT networks and the collection of vast amounts of data. According to a number of officials, the main challenge is the lack of a unifying platform to visualize all that data and to use it to improve cities.
Our platform HeroEngine World (HEW) is the answer to this platform challenge. Using HEW, cities can develop a "Digital Twin" of themselves which will live alongside and visualize all the processes within cities in real time. HEW is capable of unifying static and dynamic IoT data, location data of people and vehicles, weather, traffic, environmental data, etc. in real time and present this data to all stakeholders in a much more comprehensive way.
