Smart Cities

Overview

Datamatics is committed to ensuring economic and environmental sustainability in its endeavour to transform enterprises into fully digital entities. By leveraging the Internet of Things (IoT), Datamatics proposes to create an all-permeating network infrastructure that will connect people, places, systems, and processes in real-time.

Our next-generation integrated solutions for Smart Cities use embedded systems having wired as well as wireless (Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and 4G/LTE) technology to provide a more collaborative, flexible, and connected environment. Municipalities and local government bodies can utilise the emerging IoT systems and devices to transform their physical workspaces into digital and virtual entities. These digitised assets can then be controlled and monitored from an IoT integrated platform where data from these connected devices can be used to create more optimised and predictive operations.

Our Smart City networks encompass a gamut of mobility solutions using IoT technology. These include:

1.    Smart Transport

a.    Smart Ticketing: Passengers can avail an easy-to-use, interoperable fare medium that is equally cost-effective and secure. These smart ticketing systems utilise closed-loop smartcards as well as open-loop EMV bank cards. Datamatics also has expertise working with various ticketing systems. These tickets or fare media include magnetic paper tickets, contactless smart tokens, QR code tickets, and NFC tickets; all of which help avoid fraudulent ticketing practices and reduce costs.

b.    Smart Toll Collection/Decongestion charging: Uses technologies such as RFID tags, RFID readers, Geolocation, Automatic number plate recognition, and mobile apps to collect tolls electronically through an integrated platform. The combination of RFID tag based vehicle identification with automatic number plate recognition allows the toll operator to introduce open road toll collection and helps the transport authorities reduce congestion on the roads.  

c.    Smart Parking: Using IoT technology, smart parking systems will tell you the number of vacant spots that may be available in a parking lot. Smart parking ties sensors, GPS, mobile phones, and other integrated embedded technologies to provide users with real-time parking data such as space availability, local parking laws, parking times, etc. Using real-time data, businesses can apply dynamic pricing based on space availability and maximise profits.

2.    Smart charging systems: These systems are designed to provide convenience and ease of use to commuters looking for easy payment options in return for using mobility services. With the help of sensors, front-end devices, device terminal management, central systems, and backend systems (CHS/External communication), our smart charging systems will ensure accurate pricing and avoid fraudulent cashing practices.

3.    Smart Home Kit/Smart Device Solutions: Datamatics has proven expertise in developing iOS mobile apps that are fully compatible with the Apple Homekit and other home automation frameworks and platforms. The company has the capability to develop iOS mobile apps to control all connected devices and embedded accessories. Using Datamatics’ smart device solutions, clients can avail easy, secure, and remote management of all accessories. The company’s mobile technology also enables multiple accessories to work in combination. The apps thus developed are in strict compliance with the respective API guidelines.
