GCR will took part in the 3rd Indonesia International Smart City Expo & Forum held in Jakarta, Indonesia from 17th to 19th July, 2019 and hosted a media gathering event after the opening conference of the event on 17th, July. In the media interview, GCR presented the newest solutions from GCR’s technology partners that can perfectly fit in the applications in a smart city as well as the relevant use cases of these solutions and the implementation strategies for creating a smart city. More than 30 media professionals gathered, looked around solutions, submitted questions and exchanged ideas at the Kaneri Room of Jakarta Convention Center.
The IoT solutions under GCR＇s current offering portfolio can help shape a smart city of the future in four aspects: the connectivity, the venues, the public service, and the education.
Connectivity in Smart City
A smart city interacts with its citizens with lot of information, whether it is the weather forecast, transportation schedule, and the emergency call for local residents to plan their daily lives, or advertising of attractions for tourists to enjoy about. GCR’s various digital signage solutions, along with GCR’s networking products, help the city government to install a wide range of digital displays, from the many indoor and outdoor screens to self-service kiosks to large-sized interactive walls, supported by a solid public Wi-Fi network in the city.
Implementing and maintaining these infrastructures isn’t without money. Luckily, advertisement offers a monetary stream for it. Videos, TV streaming, widgets and media in diverse formats can be centrally edited, published, and monitored over a CMS (Content Management System) platform. Moreover, GCR’s digital media automation solution push mobile advertisements on to consumers’ mobile phones based on their demographic information and personal interests – precisely talking those ready to listen.
Venues in Smart City
The stadium, library, city hall, along with venues in many buildings, provide citizens with everyday sport and music entertainment, reading enjoyment, and other city services in the urban environment. It is a pity not to consider a smart space - with lower energy footprints, higher safety and higher security, for better living in a smart city. GCR’s centralized management solution through BMS (Building Management System) allows safety and security monitoring and control of all lighting and air conditioners from a single point.
For example, the motion-based, daylight sensing lighting sensors automatically switch on the lights and air conditioners in aisles, washrooms, and parking lots only when presence is detected and dim the lights when lighting is enough in the day time. Smoke sensors and gas leak sensors help avoid unwanted accidents, and the network surveillance cameras can also be integrated for remote access, real-time monitoring, notifications and easy playback of recordings when there is an incident. Last, transportation hubs like metro station can leverage GCR’s AI technologies in retail to understand the traffic, hot spots, queue status, and passengers’ routes in a systematic way so to raise their operation efficiency of the venue.
Public Service in Smart City
IoT benefits a city by enhancing the mobility of the public sector. GCR’s end-to-end monitoring solutions use wireless technologies and portable wireless devices to proactively track city assets and manage city fleets. For example, the RFID tags attached on library books enable self-checking out and facilitate returning of books. The sensors plugged into a vehicle’s OBDII port transmits real-time location and rash driving alert on speed, braking, accelerations, and sharp turns, ensuring active response to command center.
Staff from the city government needs to be well equipped, act agilely, and adapt themselves to a fast-paced mindset in an ever-changing IoT era. The fire and safety alarms and IoT technologies converge on a connected smart building, so the police and fire brigade can arrive right on the spot in the first minutes. With GCR’s mobile learning solution, the front-line staff is engaged in a gamified, scenario-based, and personalized learning app with measurable outcomes. They are able to perform their service tasks with more confidence, more efficiency, and less errors.
Education in Smart City
IT in education determines the competitiveness of a city in the future. STEM education tools in GCR nourish students’ ability to address urban challenges in a technological and innovative way. For example, GCR’s IoT starter kit allows learners to build a simple weather station or infrared control of their own for smart home, which is a beneficial experience as they start dealing air pollution and city safety issues later on.
Although parents and teachers all recognize the importance of introducing coding and IoT learning to kids in the early phrase of their education. Most of the adults are not confident teaching these subjects. GCR’s educational gaming platform provides over 200 game-based missions with curriculum to train up a kid’s computational thinking – a required, essential skill for future jobs in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and big data analysis.
