Denver’s Internet of Things (IoT) to boost decision-making, safety, and security
Smart City projects in Denver, Colorado are being designed to work together. A citywide Internet of Things (IoT) will monitor transportation, environmental health, weather, and freight. Varied endpoint sensors and dashboard maps will interconnect to benefit decision-making, safety, and security.
Denver’s Enterprise Data Management (EDM) system, now in development, will support cross-departmental, citywide functions. Its sensors will gather data from streetlights, along streets and railroads, in weather stations, buses, and more. IoT data collection and reporting will improve collaboration between departments as it supports daily operations. Planners will analyze the data in looking towards the city’s future.
Real-time EDM maps will show where public health and safety, air quality, and traffic are concerns. A dashboard interface will consolidate the maps and other visual information to make it accessible citywide.
