Smart Garbage Disposal System
With the distance sensor and LED light, it shows the full load of the trash can.

Noise Detector
Using sound sensors to detect noise in decibels.

Vehicle Speed Detector
Use a distance sensor to detect vehicle speed.

Smart Observatory
Establish a small observatory to detect temperature and humidity.

Smart Anti-theft System
When a suspicious person passes by, an alarm system is automatically triggered.

Smart Traffic Light
The light sensor can detect the traffic accident ahead, automatically coordinate the traffic light signal, and prevent the vehicle from moving forward.

Gate Password Switch
Use a mobile app to enter the password to open the door.

Energy-saving Streetlight

Scenario example 2: Green engineering

It is a city development, which focus on high sustainability It includes increasing green areas, energy efficiency, reducing wastes, monitoring climate information and pollution states (eg. Noise).

Video Example

Scenario example 3: Transport safety and security

The transport safety and security is the primary concern of a city. Car speed and traffic condition are being monitored in the public transportation system. only responsible person of the corporation can enter the building, alerts will be sent on the network if there are suspicious people nearby.

Video Example

The above are examples only, you can design your own smart city, simply combine different cases together or create dedicated cases in your city!
