Denver’s Internet of Things (IoT) boosts decision-making, safety, and security

IoT System CablesSmart City projects in Denver, Colorado are designed to work together. A growing citywide Internet of Things (IoT) monitors transportation, environmental health, weather, and freight. Varied endpoint sensors and dashboard maps are being interconnected to benefit decision-making, safety, and security.

Denver’s Enterprise Data Management (EDM) system[1] supports cross-departmental, citywide functions. Its sensors gather data from streetlights, along streets and railroads, in weather stations, buses, and more. IoT data collection and reporting improves collaboration between departments as it supports daily operations. Planners analyze the data in looking towards the city’s future.

Real-time EDM maps show where public health and safety, air quality, and traffic are concerns. A dashboard interface consolidates the maps and other visual information to make it accessible citywide.
