LG CNS has released an integrated internet of things (IoT) platform for a smart city solution that can collect and control big data streams from buildings, street lamps and cars, the company said Thursday.
The platform dubbed Cityhub, which is regarded as key IT technology to building a smart city, does not differentiate communication methods in collecting and managing data from 98 different industrial sectors, including logistics and manufacturing, which means that it does not need to install separate platforms.
Collected data can be analyzed with artificial intelligence to predict traffic conditions, for example.
The latest service launch is part of the company’s strategy to strengthen its IoT capability. It recently released INFioT, another IoT platform that enables data collection, delivery and storage needed for commercial IoT services. LG CNS plans to support customers to develop solutions for home IoT, connected, smart factory and smart city services using INFioT.
Meanwhile, LG CNS recently received the industry’s first certificate from Telecommunications Technology Association (TTA) for its integrated smart city platform, allowing more options to the private sector, which so far relies on government-made platforms in smart city projects.
