WiFi STREET in New York City with iPavement™ solution

iPavement premieres its WiFi Street standard in New York: an Intelligent Pavement featuring an OS, data storage, Apps upload and sensoring. It is totally SUITABLE for streets, with an easy and quick setting as a tiles line.

NYC WiFi STREET promotional spot shows how Mike, while in WiFi STREET, purchases tickets or gets touristic information, maps, augmented reality, sale coupons, audio guides, books or sport information, and lots of other services which help Mike through the Big Apple, even connecting with other city's infrastructures (irrigation, signaling, bus stops, subway...), allowing him, besides, to get connected with his family.

iPavement, by means of VIACITIES OS and other applications, provides the city with accessibility and proximity services and supplies Internet access and specific information via WiFi straight to mobile phones and tablets, in compliance with the “Intelligent Environments Pavement Standard”.

iPavement’s main integrated Apps, VIA-BOOK (The library in the street), VIA-MAPS (A means to discover information of interest, with simply a click), VIA-SOUND (Music and more!), VIA-COUPONS (Commercial coupons in the zone), MS-ALERT (Intelligent warnings via Bluetooth) and MS-BLUE (Programmed messages via Bluetooth).

As citizens, our online data claiming, social networking, media downloading, streaming or mobile phones video calling is constantly increasing, which make telecom companies to boost new 3G structures within the cities. The alternative iPavement Solution lessens the traffic between mobile and WiFi networks in the street.

WiFi Street concept, as designed for New York by VIA INTELIGENTE, could become a model for urban economic boost and for improvement in communications infrastructures in any city around the world.

iPavement is freely dispatching the technical requirements for cities to define and include WiFi STREETS into their Urban and Strategic Planning.

The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

If a machine can invent, does this mean the end of the patent system as we know it? The patent system, both in the US and Europe, allows companies to protect their inventions and helps foster innovation. However, Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be set to disrupt the patent system as we know it. This talk will examine how AI may change the patent landscape in the years to come. Furthermore, ways in which companies can best protect their AI related inventions will be examined from both a US and...
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
