Smart city solutions with Kaa IoT Platform

From the urban jungle to the smart city with Kaa

The rise of the smart city is a defining moment for the Internet of Things evolution as diverse technologies are getting amalgamated into large-scale, multi-layered solutions for the benefit of entire nations. Taking the centre stage as an open-source IoT platform, Kaa delivers essential glue for this transformation.

The smart city solutions powered by the Kaa IoT Platform place specific emphasis on the efficient use of the road infrastructure, public service facilities, and smart buildings. Integrated with Kaa, smart meters, sensors, and device gateways can be used for real-time monitoring of local and city-wide electrical power distribution, consumption of water, gas emissions, traffic load, and other city vitals. Oblivious waste of natural resources could be finally the thing of the past — at the same time, IoT-enabled public transportation, waste disposal, and public safety solutions could set a new standard of comfortable urban living.

Kaa offers a variety of out-of-the-box IoT features for smart parking, smart water management, connected waste containers, smart traffic lights for automated traffic balancing, smart street lights, and smart buildings. The key advantages of Kaa — rapid IoT implementation and its open-source nature — allow smart city integrators and device manufactures to build their smart products much faster and with full freedom to customize them or integrate with anything else.

IoT technologies and Kaa are the best way to build public transportation and traffic management solutions that automatically respond to road congestions, accidents, and emergencies by adapting traffic light patterns, the number of designated lanes, or bus timetable. With Kaa, it is easy to create an end-to-end IoT traffic management solution that would also allow citizens to monitor all aspects of the city road situation from their smartphones in real time.
