360 cameras for smart city solutions are here! Helping urban areas collect and capitalize on high quality data to launch the newest and most advanced innovations.
The precise HD data, once analyzed, can offer incredible new insights into issues that have been occurring since the beginning of cities, as well as offer solutions for new problems which are popping up.
Traffic and transportation, utilities, public safety, and community services can all benefit from better knowledge gathered from these technologies, and the Mosaic 51 is leading the way in providing mobile mapping services for these outcomes.
Effective evaluation of infrastructure
It is the ideal camera for capturing and processing images of infrastructure throughout the city such as the conditions of roads, the progress of construction, and the quantity of a given item (street signs, utility poles, lights, pavement quality, cracks in the road, potholes, etc.). And it is possible to have this data at the tips of your fingers, in real-time, without having to send a crew of surveyors or inspectors to a site.
Need to know if there are potholes to be fixed? What about if there are enough or proper street signs after a natural disaster?
The Mosaic 51 can provide that information to the necessary agencies and offices to keep the city running right.
Real-time decision making capabilities
With a real-time mobile map of the city, emergency response teams are better able to direct their vehicles and personnel to accidents and emergency situations as they will have access to the latest information regarding traffic conditions, construction zones, and the best driving routes.
Police departments will have access to another pair of eyes on the ground and a better understanding of the environment into which they are sending their officers. With the latest data available in incredibly precise image quality and GPS, they will know about every door, every barrier to entry, and every alley before approaching the scene of the call.
Energy saving tips
With continuously updated information regarding car traffic, pedestrian traffic and the usage of spaces throughout the city, municipalities are able to make better decisions regarding how to use lighting along the streets, across bridges, and in parks based on the use these locations are getting.
Transportation authorities can more accurately predict and make changes concerning the types of transportation, the schedules, and the routes that buses, trams and trains should take to best serve the community and save energy and resources were not necessary.
