Huawei launches operating system for smart cities using AI

Huawei has launched a new platform to support and enhance smart cities. The company says that the aim of the platform is to assist governments and other bodies with operating smart cities. It aims to leverage AI, hybrid cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT) to combine data from video and data sensors. As an example, with such data a city would be able to create real-time live 3D maps to access information on traffic, pollution and other issues. They claim that the solution is in use in more than 160 cities in over 40 countries.

Project Overview

"The snappily-titled Digital Platform for smart cities looks to help governments and other organisations develop, tests and deploy smart urban initiatives, bringing together technologies such as AI, hybrid cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT).

This includes a central Intelligent Operations Centre (IOC) which can allow officials to bring together a variety of different feeds such as video and data sensors, to create real-time live 3D maps to spot potential problems such as traffic build-up or pollution hotspots.

The system can also use predictive AI models to make models for the future, analysing trends from the past to provide information on potential issues.

The company says that its Smart City Solution is already in operation in more than 160 cities in over 40 countries, including European locations such as Duisburg in Germany and Sardinia in Italy.

Huawei says that the platform can be scaled depending on the needs of the city it serves, with services able to be added in or taken away as needed."
