The world is becoming urbanized. People are moving from rural to urban centers at a rate of 1.3 million per week. 65% of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050. Capturing timely, relevant and actionable data about the urban environment is crucial for cities to keep functioning. To meet this need, Univrses is developing a game-changing platform called 3DAI City.
Technological breakthroughs have shaped the evolution of our Cities. Developments like basic sanitation, the electric telegraph and the introduction of the automobile have lead to fundamental changes in the way we get around, the way we work and the way we live our lives. In 2019, the development of Smart Cities will lead us to the next era of urban society.
Today, the management of cities depends on timely, relevant and actionable data about the urban environment. The more data we can gather, the more complete our understanding of cities will be. The movement of vehicles and people can be measured, correlated and predicted over time to reduce traffic congestion and identify crime hotspots. Damage to infrastructure, like pot-holes and road cracks, can be assessed and the need for repair determined in a predictive manner. Parking offences and availability can be automatically detected. Problems created by pollution, congestion and crime can be addressed. Resources is deployed more effectively and makes the urban environment a safer place.
Univrses is developing a game-changing platform called 3DAI City. Camera units are deployed on public vehicles operating in the city. The images are then processed by Univrses’ proprietary algorithms to derive meaningful data relevant to the successful functioning of the city. Live information (made anonymous) is presented in a clear simple and intuitive way. This is a new paradigm in smart city monitoring, which enables those in charge to solve real world problems, save money and, potentially, save lives.
