ZTE has introduced its ‘Smart Street 2.0 – Highlights Your City’ service at CeBIT in Hannover, Germany. Smart Street 2.0 is the second generation of ZTE’s LPWAN-based product, designed to help city administrators transform public services on the city’s streets and road, and create the foundation for a smart city.

Leveraging IoT, cloud computing and big data technologies, the platform integrates key services for everyday street life, i.e. such as parking and lighting. The platform is environmentally-friendly, and uses real time data analytics based navigation and routing information to save time and fuel for citizens, in turn making street life greener, ZTE said.

The Smart Street 2.0 service is based on a centralised ‘street command and control centre’, which acts as the main back-end hub for the street applications. It interacts with smart street IoT infrastructure and collects data from the sub-systems. It then uses the embedded intelligence of its big data analytics engine to interact with citizens via a smart phone app, to provide notifications, guidance, navigation and smart routing information. It also collects payment fees for smart parking as well as other fee collections, such as traffic violation ticket charges through online payment services.

Smart parking functions show the real-time acquisition of available parking spaces in the street and in the vicinity of drivers, providing navigation and online payment fee facility. Smart street lights operate intelligently based on factors such as the time of the day, natural light conditions and weather. The automatic sensor technology script in the street command and control centre helps to automatically switch lights on and off or brighten/dim as per the real-time environmental conditions, natural requirements and street activity.

Smart street LED displays can show weather, temperature, noise and other important information and can also be used for displaying public information and advertisements. The sensors also sense the volume of waste and report to the back-end system. When 80 percent capacity is reached, an automatic ‘waste pickup signal’ is sent to the back-end system, which in turn notifies the trash truck driver. It also navigates the waste collection vehicle driver to the pickup points using the most efficient route, creating a dynamic schedule for multiple waste collections in the area.
