Perth online mapping system provides publicly available, real-time information and data on specific spatial points in the city (eg. tree cadastre, cultural heritage, parking services, arts and cultural life, transportation, public WIFI activity levels, etc.). Use smart phone, tablet or desktop computer to access a variety of maps that contain City of Perth data alongside relevant State agency spatial data feeds via the WA Government Open Data platform.
Based on big data, EHang's smart logistics ecosystem uses cloud computing and autonomous aerial vehicles (AAVs) to build the aerial logistics network via air transportation. The difficulties in delivering goods to urban and rural areas, industrial parks and islands will be solved and a more intelligent and convenient shopping environment will thus be created. EHang logistics AAVs will fly along with the pre-programmed route, and complete the pre-programmed task. There is no need for manual intervention over the course, improving the delivery efficiency.
