Street Lamps as a Platform

Communications of the ACM

Street lamps constitute the densest electrically operated public infrastructure in urban areas. Their changeover to energy-friendly LED light quickly amortizes and is increasingly leveraged for smart city projects, where LED street lamps double, for example, as wireless networking or sensor infrastructure. We make the case for a new paradigm called SLaaP--street lamps as a platform. SLaaP is proposed as an open, enabling platform, fostering innovative citywide services for the full range of stakeholders and end users--seamlessly extending from everyday use to emergency response. In this article, we first describe the role and potential of street lamps and introduce one novel base service as a running example. We then discuss citywide infrastructure design and operation, followed by addressing the major layers of a SLaaP infrastructure: hardware, distributed software platform, base services, value-added services and applications for users and'things.' Finally, we discuss the crucial roles and participation of major stakeholders: citizens, city, government, and economy. Recent years have seen the emergence of smart street lamps, with very different meanings of'smart'--sometimes related to the original purpose as with usage-dependent lighting, but mostly as add-on capabilities like urban sensing, monitoring, digital signage, WiFi access, or e-vehicle charging.a The future holds even more use cases: for example, after a first wave of 5G mobile network rollouts from 2020 onward, a second wave shall apply mm-wave frequencies for which densely deployed light poles can be appropriate'cell towers.'


Sky internet down: Broadband outage hits customers across UK

The Independent - Tech

Sky internet appears to have been hit by network problems, causing issues for people trying visit websites and use other online services. Hundreds of reports were registered by Down Detector, while users also complained of problems on social media. "Can someone stick 50p in the meter or reconnect the wires?" one customer wrote on Twitter. "Sky internet is down again!" Similar outage reports spread online last month, after network issues in Cornwall left people unable to connect to the internet.


2020 Supply Chain Technology Trends: Where Do Young Technologies Fit On A Maturity Curve?

#artificialintelligence

There are a number of young technologies that are getting a lot of buzz. But how mature are these technologies? Which of these technologies offer solid ROI, which are worth piloting, and which should be ignored? There are technologies that are proven and widely adopted. In supply chain management, examples would be transportation management, warehouse management, and other well-known supply chain applications.


Why the AI revolution now? Because of 6 key factors.

#artificialintelligence

About: Data-Driven Science (DDS) provides training for people building a career in Artificial Intelligence (AI). In recent years, AI has been taking off and became a topic that is frequently making it into the news. But why is that actually? AI research has started in the mid-twentieth century when mathematician Alan Turing asked the question "Can Machines Think?" in a famous paper in 1950. However, it's been not until the 21st century that Artificial Intelligence has shaped real-world applications that are impacting billions of people and most industries across the globe.


KT deploys 5G autonomous carts at warehouses

ZDNet

One of the carts, called, Targo, will trail behind staff. South Korean telco KT has deployed autonomous carts with 5G connectivity at its smartphone warehouses to alleviate the workload of staff, the company announced. The carts were co-developed by South Korean autonomous robot developer Twinny. One version of the cart, dubbed NarGo, will have a cart that has multiple carts trailing behind it, like a freight train. It is designed to carry large quantities of cargo, with each cart being able to carry 100 kilograms of goods.


AI Computing for Automotive: The Battle for Autonomy - EE Times Asia

#artificialintelligence

The 2025 market for AI, including ADAS and robotic vehicles, is estimated at $2.75 billion – of which $2.5 billion will be "ADAS only"... Artificial Intelligence (AI) is gradually invading our lives through everyday objects like smartphones, smart speakers, and surveillance cameras. The hype around AI has led some players to consider it as a secondary objective, more or less difficult to achieve, rather than as a central tool to achieve the real objective: autonomy. Who are the winners and losers in the race for autonomy? "AI is gradually invading our lives and this will be particularly true in the automotive world" asserts Yohann Tschudi, Technology & Market Analyst, Computing & Software at Yole Développement (Yole). "AI could be the central tool to achieve AD, in the meantime some players are afraid of overinflated hype and do not put AI at the center of their AD strategy".

Artificial Intelligence …. world's tech giants from Amazon to Alibaba, are in a race to become the world's leaders. The companies are AI trailblazers, embracing AI to next-level products and services. Here are some of the best examples of how these companies are using artificial intelligence in practice. Alphabet, Google's parent company and Waymo, self-driving technology division, started as a project at Google. Waymo wishes to bring self-driving technology to the world, today, to move people around and reduce accidents and crashes.


The Ten Most Dangerous Roads In The World, And How Self-Driving Cars Would Fare

#artificialintelligence

Will self-driving cars be able to cope with highly dangerous roads? Let's talk about dangerous roads. In a moment, I'll provide you with a recently published list of the presumed Top Ten most dangerous roads in the world. For some of you, the odds are that you'll be happy that you've never had a cause to try and traverse these bad-to-the-bone roads, while others of you are probably going to put these alarming roads on your bucket list of places you have to go and give a whirl someday. Do you prefer roads that are calm, easy to navigate, and present little or no qualms?

The challenges in deployment are different from the challenges in technology. Deployment challenges include getting companies to understand how AI benefits them. We tell people it will save them millions. One client is saving hundreds of millions of dollars a year using our AI. But the problem is, it does disrupt their internal business and workflows until it's implemented.
