Smart City Solutions for Utilities, Buildings, and Transportation
According to the United Nations, two thirds of the world's population will live in urban areas by 2050. At COPA-DATA, we see that as a mandate to use all our resources and opportunities to create a valuable contribution to a sustainable future that is worth living – with innovative solutions based on our zenon Software Platform and the latest technology available.
Smart City Technology
The technology being used to build Smart Cities today is commonly known as the Internet of Things (IoT). The Internet of Things allows for the connection of day-to-day items through the Internet. COPA-DATA leverages this technology with its software platform zenon to enable Smart Cities.
IoT solutions for Smart Cities allow municipalities and utilities to make faster and better decisions that will lead to greater efficiency, safety and quality of life for everyday people. We live in a digitized world where IoT technology makes it possible for us to collect, analyze and use data to optimize processes and the consumption of valuable resources.
The zenon Software Platform uses the wide spectrum of this technology for multiple purposes, including:
Areas of Smart City Innovation
Thanks to the integration of technology in many different areas of life, there are multiple aspects to the development of a Smart City, such as:
Smart City Solutions with zenon
zenon has the power to analyze data and help develop Smart City solutions that can improve sustainability, safety, and efficiency in cities all over the world. Smart City technology can apply to many different city components, such as energy, water, buildings, transportation, and traffic. See below to learn more about zenon’s wide-reaching solutions to city challenges.
If you need a solution that allows you to secure energy supply or control your grid more effectively, zenon is a proven and reliable way to streamline your processes and improve network reliability in the city, so that everyone can depend on the energy they need to function.Whether it is for smart grids, substations, hydropower plants, wind farms, or photovoltaic systems, zenon provides an integrated environment for all applications.
A reliable water supply is one of the most important services that every city needs. The zenon Software Platform has capabilities to predict rates of water depletion and provide answers so you can resolve problems. With zenon, maintenance technicians can stay on top of leaks or other problems that may occur with the water supply through the help of alert messages. This way, downtime is reduced and maintenance costs can be more easily controlled.
zenon offers utility management for Smart Cities by creating simple and effective solutions for the operations and processes that take place in city buildings. For example, zenon can help you come up with ways to save energy in public buildings to cut down on costs, waste, and your impact on the environment.
This software has the ability to integrate energy systems and, it can do the same thing with most systems that are needed to run a building. From heating and air conditioning to elevators and electricity, zenon can take on the management of all these systems and condense it into a more streamlined and data-driven automated process.
Transportation and Traffic
Another aspect of Smart City life that zenon can enhance is the public transportation and traffic systems. For instance, you can use zenon to oversee and control lighting on airport runways or to control overhead displays on high-traffic roads. Because one of zenon’s staple functions is the conservation of energy, our software also monitors for possible savings in public transportation energy usage.
