At the Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC) 2018 Huawei showcased its Digital Platform to enable smart cities.
The digital platform combines artificial intelligence (AI), internet of things (IoT), big data and cloud.
The solutions are designed to facilitate city governance, improve public services, and enable industry innovation and best practices.
The demonstration covered applications such as municipal management, public safety and environmental protection, as well as smart transportation, smart government, smart education, and smart agriculture.
Ma Yue, vice president of Huawei Enterprise Business Group and president of the Global Sales Department of Huawei Enterprise Business Group, said, “The development of a smart city is a highly complex project. As a world-leading ICT product and solution provider that delivers cloud-pipe-device synergy, Huawei can achieve the integration of cloud, IoT, video and edge computing with AI technologies, connecting the entire city nervous system — the ‘brain’ (command center), ‘central nervous system’ (network), and ‘peripheral nervous system’ (sensors).”
Just like an operating system, the platform is compatible with different city sensors, creates a city digital twin, and supports diverse city applications. It is also open to facilitate collaboration with ecosystem partners. It also offers top-level design, integration, operations, service application, and other capabilities required for effective smart city development.
To date, the Huawei Smart City Solution has served more than 160 cities in over 40 countries.
