Silicon Halton Meetup #102 – IoT in Smart Cities

April 25, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm


The Internet of Things, or IoT, is the interconnection via the Internet of computing devices embedded in everyday objects, enabling them to send and receive data.

Imagine fixed-purposed computing IoT devices contained in elements of a community’s transportation grid – stop signs, traffic lights, parking spots, buses, etc. For example, imagine knowing the exact time a bus will arrive at your stop because the bus is transmitting its GPS location to a central system, and an app on your smartphone is reading that data? (oh wait, that one is already being done). This one example of one element – combining enough elements results in the community being thought of as a Smart City.

This meetup will feature presentations by Smart City experts, with a focus on Linear Assets:

  • Roads
  • Streets
  • Highways
  • and anything that happens on these surfaces

You will also be treated to the TechUnder20 2018 Cup team Pot Hole. These teens will demo their RoadAlerts product, a roadway pot hole heat-mapping application they conceived, built, then pitched at this year’s TU20Cup event – their application leverages GEOTAB’s open data. GEOTABs provides aggregated data blanketing every major urban roadway throughout North America and coverage in over 100 countries.

Following the presentations, the invited Smart City experts will answer your questions on how the Internet of Things is being used in Linear Assets to build Smart Cities.
