The city of Las Vegas has already invested in “smart” infrastructure, having charted a course to become a smart city by 2025. Within the Innovation District, the city is working quickly to create a place where intelligent transportation systems and smart technology operate seamlessly to provide services efficiently to its 650,000 residents and 42 million visitors.
The city seeks to improve interoperability among all public service sectors: transportation, energy, public works, facilities, and public safety/law enforcement through open-source data sharing, real-time data analytics and decision support. The city’s aim is to keep the public safe and connected and provide them information they seek when they need it. The Innovation District will serve as a test bed for new Internet of Things innovations that will be deployed across the city’s vast metropolitan area.
The city has embarked on a ground-breaking public/private partnership with NTT and Dell Technologies that is leveraging Internet of Things (IoT) and edge analytics to help improve public safety. High definition video cameras, sound and motion sensors, and an array of IoT devices are being integrated and deployed to monitor a geographic area in the Innovation District creating a multi-channel safety solution. < Back to all
