Optimize Critical Public Services for Urban Living
By 2050, the cities of the world will account for two-thirds of the total population. Cities need to manage social equality, mobility, competitiveness and energy efficiency to maintain the well-being of its citizens while managing rapid population growth and limited resources.
To achieve this, city leaders need to leverage and analyze data from multiple sources to build smart cities where people can live and thrive in safety and comfort, even during rapid growth.
TCS’ Intelligent Urban Exchange (IUX) is a modular, integrated software solution that helps cities accelerate their smart-city programs, easily and cost-effectively, enabling them to achieve greater levels of social, economic and environmental sustainability.
TCS Intelligent Urban Exchange Solution
TCS’ Intelligent Urban Exchange solution offers real-time insights and next-step recommendations to help launch smart- city initiatives faster and more cost-effectively. IUX collects and analyzes historical and real-time data, both structured and unstructured, from a wide array of sources:
- Networks and systems
- Sensors and actuators
- Social media and open city data
- Water, transportation and energy systems
IUX’s open, scalable architecture offers cities and partners the ultimate flexibility, with modules that enable them to buy what they need today and add future capabilities as needed. IUX’s Information Exchange Gateway provides partners and the city ecosystem with a way to easily exchange real-time intelligence and alerts with all the city’s stakeholders.
Out-of-the-box IUX applications include City Command Center, Intelligent Energy, Intelligent Transportation and Intelligent Energy. Each application includes domain-specific capabilities designed to optimize management and operations and solve real city problems.
IUX modules are underpinned by the IUX City Data Platform, a robust, low-code analytics platform built with open-source components. The City Data Platform can be extended to support additional analytics initiatives–letting developers and partners integrate and deploy their own PMML analytics models quickly and efficiently. The platform includes a rich set of APIs for simplified integration with smart-city systems and applications.
The IUX City Command Center module is a scalable offering built on the TCS City Data Platform that enables city managers to view, analyze and optimize city-level functions and events in real-time across departments.
This module optimizes streetlight operation and buildings based on real-time factors such as weather, traffic, footfall, crime rate patterns, and events.
This module addresses challenges related to a city’s transportation services, such as increasing bus ridership, reducing wait time, improving capacity and increasing utilization.
This module helps solve water conservation issues, including reducing non-revenue water, optimizing capital allocation and reducing maintenance truck rolls.
