Industrial products for Smart City applications

Sensor to cloud
The smart cities of the future will be built on connected infrastructure, intelligent devices and cloud analytics. With the advent of 5G and point to point communications we will build huge high bandwidth networks capable of enabling near real time processing and control of data and end points.

AI and machine learning algorithms will easily take advantage of cloud computing power whilst providing instantaneous control of traffic signalling, lighting, advertising and other established systems.

Smart Building
BEMS and HVAC are established industries and early adopters of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Using protocols such as LonWorks and BACnet integrators have long been able to remotely control window louvres, smoke dampers and emergency lighting.

Access control systems have progressed from simple point to point serial systems to complex IP based systems allowing distributed control of locking mechanisms and CCTV.

Impulse have a huge range of devices for suitable for BEMS integrators.

Smart Lighting
Smart, connected lighting infrastructure enables remote monitoring and control of lighting schemes to adapt to the demands of modern metropolitan areas.

The ability to reduce street lighting intensity in low traffic situations gives significant energy savings whilst the remote monitoring of LED drivers increases operational efficiency by responding to failures rather than scheduling routine maintenance visits.

Industrial network infrastructure is critical for this type of system, ask us how.

Smart Parking
As town planners prioritise walk-able urban development and modern living environments, technology led parking is becoming more prevalent as vast car parks are repurposed and real estate becomes increasingly limited.

Intelligent technology infrastructure is the key to keeping operating costs to a minimum and allowing the hassle free user experience that consumers expect.

At Impulse we have a huge range of computing, data communication and sensor products suitable for parking OEMs.
