911 Project – Predicting Hotspots for Accidents

Traffic volume, geographic centrality and unique relief have led to an increase in traffic accidents and fatalities every year since 2015. The Chattanooga Smart Community Collaborative (CCSC), launched the ’911 Project – Predicting Hotspots for Accidents’ in early 2018. It uses machine learning, specifically multi-layer perceptron (MLP) neural network models, to analyse both historic and current 911 data to identify accident trends. This dataset is cross-referenced with DarkSky weather data, roadway geometric data and accident time, date, geographical coordinates.

Aquastar

Aquastar is Cary's and Morrisville's innovative meter infrastructure system that replaced monthly manual meter reads with a wireless system that collects multiple remote meter reads per day.

Vilawatt project

The local government of Viladecans, in Barcelona, set up an energy company based on citizen participation to promote the shift to environmentally friendly power sources and the renovation of homes to make them more energy efficient. In addition, a digital currency was created to reward people for saving energy. The money could be spent at businesses in their area to boost the local economy. The wider goal was to ensure the sustainable use of resources in a socially just community in which citizens play an active role.

Guangzhou – The first urban air mobility pilot city

EHang, the world's leading autonomous aerial vehicle (AAV) technology platform company, announced today that it has selected Guangzhou as its first urban air mobility (UAM) pilot city globally for the establishment of a low-altitude aviation transportation network that shuttles passengers and goods in a safe, fast, environmentally friendly, cost-efficient and intelligent way.

Perth Online Mapping system

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.

EHang's Smart Logistics Ecosystem

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.
