THE CITY BECOMES SMARTER AND SMARTER

THE FIRST SOCIAL SMART CITY IN THE WORLD

An IT infrastructure for the city of the future

Having connected and sustainable cities is one of the most stimulating projects involving technology in the construction industry. This is why the first Social Smart City in the world was created, a project developed by the synergy between our company and Planet Idea aimed at creating a new IT infrastructure specifically designed for the city of the future.

THE CUSTOMER

Planet Idea: urban innovation

Planet Idea is a competence center that provides consultancy and develops projects to integrate urban innovation: products, ideas and best practices. The aim is to improve the quality of life and make tangible the concept of smart city that is based on four pillars: built environment, technological systems, ecosystem resources and society. 

THE SCENARIO

Improving the standard of living with conglomerates of dwellings

The situation in Brazil is changing with the inhabitants of the countryside and favelas moving to the city. Planet Idea has designed and built a new residential center called Smart City in São Gonçalo do Amarante (CE) to provide affordable housing and encourage the rise of the social class. 

The aim is to improve the standard of living and offer added value to the conglomerates of dwellings by digitizing them.

THE NEEDS

Digital as an added value in the social field

The customer wanted to offer digital added value in the social field to all the homes built. One of the objectives was to integrate services for the citizens into a software infrastructure. The demands that we have been able to meet are to guarantee, for example, the direct and continuous perception of consumption in order to generate a sense of responsibility for waste, and to become part of an eco-sustainable planet. The creation of an app has generated a community that organizes events and moments of meeting, fun and discussion in favour of interaction among people.

THE SOLUTION

IoT, Machine Learning, Software As A Service, Containers at the service of the Smart City

We created Hub Iot, a system for collecting data generated by IoT devices, by developing the code on Microsoft’s Azure platform. A system of aggregation and analysis of data through Machine Learning and algorithms created ad-hoc has been designed. The creation of a web platform exposing API (Application Program Interface) interfaces allows data to be drawn on and viewed through a web or mobile application. 

To make the whole structure work, we have created a cloud architecture with microservices inserted into containers and PaaS systems provided by Azure. The choice fell on them because they guarantee a high scalability of the system, both horizontal and vertical, in order to manage, with the same platform, services geolocalized in different areas of the planet. 

The use of Software as a Service and Platform as a Service, provided by Microsoft, have been deployed for different applications: relational and NoSQL databases, cache systems and API exposure services. In addition to containers and to SaaS and PaaS services, Serverless paradigms were also used to manage data aggregation.
