ESEYE SERIOUS ABOUT SMART CITIES AT TRAFFEX 2013
April 16th 2013 – Siemens and Streetline are among the big names in Smart Cities using connectivity from M2M specialist Eseye.
Eseye, a key enabler in the Smart Cities revolution, will be showcasing its connectivity offering at Traffex 2013 through some of the industry’s key players.
The three-day event – the 26th annual international traffic engineering, ITS, road safety, parking and highway maintenance exhibition – will kick off with an opening address from Norman Baker MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary for Transport. Held at the NEC in Birmingham, Traffex will showcase the latest in traffic signs and road safety, as well as hosting speaker discussions on a range of topics from how to control motorway congestion to the role of safety cameras.
Eseye knows that whatever the solution, M2M is the key. The machine-to-machine specialist manages the connectivity of some of the world’s biggest names in Smart Cities including Siemens and Streetline. Another of Eseye’s clients, Rennicks MTS, will be presenting at the event. Specialists in Variable Message Signs, Rennicks will launch the iWicket, designed to offer a cost-effective, health and safety compliant alternative to manually-changed temporary traffic signs in central reservations. The iWicket is remotely operated using Eseye’s AnyNet™ SIM to offer reliable connectivity along with the full benefit of Eseye’s 24 hour customer support.
PWS Signs is another VMS manufacturer to benefit from a long-standing relationship with Eseye and its AnyNet™ connectivity in remote locations. Thanks to Eseye’s data analysis capabilities and usage transparency, PWS has enjoyed a reduction in data consumption and counts Eseye as a trusted M2M adviser.
Streetline is a global company making waves across the UK. With several industry awards under its belt, it’s leading the Smart Cities movement and has been demonstrating the benefits of intelligent parking solutions in cities like Manchester and Birmingham. With its Parker™ app and Eseye’s connectivity, Streetline is helping to reduce emissions and congestion caused directly by drivers searching for parking spaces.
Parking sensors and remote sign monitoring and control aren’t the only ways to reduce costs and emissions in cities. Technology giant Siemens will be showcasing its top of the range Electric Vehicle charging points, benefiting from Eseye connectivity. Thanks to a successful trial of Eseye’s VPN, connectivity and SIM management portal, Siemens is now looking to Eseye to provide more AnyNet™ SIMs that offer secure data transfer and a multi-network approach to connectivity.
This year’s Traffex will see more innovative products and services unveiled by companies, all working to change the landscape of British cities and demonstrate greener, cleaner ways of managing traffic and transport systems.
Mathew Birkett, Smart City Manager at Eseye, is looking forward to seeing the latest devices from some of the world’s industry specialists: “I’m really excited to see not only how companies are already using Eseye to realise the full potential of their innovations, but how others can really get the most out of Eseye’s expertise in M2M. Technology really is nothing without support and Eseye provides that support from the very first connection.”
