Stonnington, VIC RFID Bin Program evaluates systematic approach to curbside collection issues

Stonnington outfitted a food and organic waste collection truck with a radio-frequency identification (RFID) reader. The reader scans the RFID tag on each curbside bin for collection time and location. This data along with driver reports of collection issues are sent to the Customer Service team for timely responses. Council officials will use data from the three-month pilot to target hotspots for bin overflows, theft, and contamination.

Helsinki, FI collaborates with Geo Mobility and xyzt.ai on smart mobility analytics platform

A pilot version of Helsinki's new analytics tool feeds Geo Mobility's traffic data sets into the xyzt.ai platform. This combination creates multiple levels of traffic and mobility insights based on historical data. Municipal officials learn more about issues like vehicle near-misses with pedestrians at intersections and neighborhoods with high concentrations of tailpipe emissions. Project leaders will evaluate data limits and possibilities for a mobility-focused digital twin during the pilot.

Guelph, ON adopts eleven-x smart parking technology for improved enforcement and planning

Guelph and eleven-x plan implementation of the eXactpark system across two stages. The initial stage adds SPS-X sensors to 250 downtown parking spaces with another 1,750 spaces connected during the second stage. SPS-X sensor data on vehicle occupancy of public parking spaces feed into the eXactpark platform. City officials will use parking data for enforcement of its two-hour free parking initiative and more precise allocation of resources to parking services.

Noosa, QLD partners with Pano AI on trial of AI-powered bushfire detection technology

Council officials allocated bushfire recovery funds for a pilot of Pano AI's technology. High-definition cameras at Black Mountain and Tewantin National Park capture 360-degree views of Noosa. Video footage and satellite images are evaluated by a platform for early bushfire detection. Pano AI automatically messages local responders with bushfire locations and images for effective responses. The pilot builds on the council's Firetech Connect initiative for detection technology development.

Herrenberg, BW introduces the stadtnavi mobile app for sustainable multimodal commutes

Herrenberg used funding from the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure for a pilot version of the app. Commuters enter departure and arrival addresses into stadtnavi for available transit options. The mobile app recommends trains, buses, bikeshares, and other modes based on user needs. Additional features include a parking vacancy map and taxi statuses at the train station. Future plans for stadtnavi include real-time mapping of traffic congestion.

Hobart, TAS connects traffic cameras to Milestone XProtect platform for improved coverage

A 2020 city audit of traffic cameras found a lack of central control along with inoperable devices. Milestone XProtect connects cameras and sensors from multiple manufacturers to the city's Safe City Hub. Local officers monitor real-time traffic trends and obstructions from 370 data streams throughout Hobart. XProtect also supports searches for footage based on time and location. This feature enables the efficient collection of evidence for police investigations.

Townsville, QLD tracks environmental changes throughout the city with LiXiA sensors

Council officials worked with the local company on deploying solar-powered sensors in urban and green spaces. Real-time data on metrics ranging from solar irradiance to water quality are sent to a dashboard for public use. Townsville builds on this deployment with community events where participants build their own sensors while learning about the environment. A community-wide sensor network supports city decisions about resiliency, energy use, and emergency preparedness.

Dublin City Council, IE engages young residents in smart city design with Academy of the Near Future

City officials worked with CONNECT and Smart Docklands on educational activities related to smart city technology. An initial pilot taught 1,000 Transition Year students about IoT devices, connectivity, and other concepts. This pilot was followed by a Design Your Future City challenge that asked 21 participants to solve local problems with technology. Future plans include an Optimisers program for local council employees and a citizen science project at 25 schools.

Hamilton, ON Proactive Leak Detection Program identifies water loss with smart devices

Hamilton used Gutermann's ZoneScan 820 radio loggers for a four-month detection pilot. The city selected a zone for logger deployment each evening. Loggers were magnetically affixed to hydrants and mainline valves for the detection of water leak sounds over a 200-meter radius. This approach meant that 7.5 kilometers of water main were monitored per night. City officials relied on leak mapping for timely repairs of 177 leaks and sensor data for its 10-year water main replacement program.

Bournemouth, Christchurch & Poole Council, GB monitors coastal water quality with AI sensors

Council officials and Poole Harbour Commissioners worked with UnifAI to install AI-powered sensors on coastal buoys. UnifAI's platform turns raw data on water pollutants and industrial discharges into in-depth analyses of quality levels. Real-time insights on quality changes lead to targeted cleanup or mitigation efforts. This two-year pilot created a template for low-cost, low-maintenance water quality monitoring for other councils.

Westminster City Council, GB upgrades inspection records management with smart tags in council homes

City engineers are placing RFID tags on electrical and gas meters in 13,331 council homes during a two-month installation. Coin-sized tags will be scanned by contractors when they conduct safety inspections and repairs. Each scan sends location, date, and time information to the unit's digital record. Westminster City Council can track contractor visits and update housing records without additional visits once smart tags are installed.
