Crisis Management

The coordination of response crews, material and equipment from different stakeholders is one of the major challenges in handling large scale disasters like floods, earthquakes or wildfires. For the operational management of the situation, obtaining a clear picture of the situation in the concerned area is of paramount importance, to allow for the efficient and safe deployment of the available resources.

Computer Vision for City Maintenance

Cities use the IoT to collect real-time data to better understand how demand patterns are changing and respond with faster and less expensive solutions. With a 5G connection, cities will be able to gain knowledge at every social iteration and protect their data lakes from external access. From sensors, street furniture, and user equipment, cities are constantly producing data which requires connecting the sources and storing their data.

Windmill Maintenance

Traditionally, a considerable number of wind farms do not have a policy of preventive maintenance activities due to the high costs associated with it. Furthermore, wind farms that realize these preventive activities, normally use ground crews with conventional cameras and zoom lenses not very efficient and thus time-consuming.

Precision Agriculture

Precision agriculture (PA), satellite farming or site-specific crop management (SSCM) is a farming management concept based on observing, measuring and responding to inter and intra-field variability in crops. Today, even though significant effort has been put on making innovative precision agriculture technologies, the actual adoption of the innovation has been notoriously slow.
