How surveillance cameras add value to digital twin cities

    Virtual worlds have been receiving a lot of attention recently, not least due to the focus on the potential new ‘metaverse’ we’ll all no doubt be encouraged to join. From a smart city perspective, creating models of the processes and journeys occurring across the urban environment can bring many benefits, helping city authorities more quickly […]

      Balancing value and total cost of ownership in city surveillance

      As data becomes more valuable and important to cities in realizing their smart city vision, authorities are investing in technologies that create, collect and analyze data. Video surveillance cameras and connected devices – the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) – are central among them. Every technology used in a city comes at a cost, including […]

        Marrying AI and manual labor for more effective assembly lines

        Digitization, automation, and Industry 4.0 are driving far-reaching changes in the manufacturing industry. But most of the mass production in industries such as automotive is still done by manual labor.  When it comes to manufacturing, there is quite naturally much talk about Industry 4.0. As you know, the industrial internet of things (IIoT), along with […]

          A perfect IIoT tool for integrators: how will you use it to innovate?

          Axis is all but synonymous with network-based surveillance cameras. The same operational efficiency, open APIs, and edge computing that built a world-leading position in that sector can be used for industrial internet of things (IIoT) solutions, helping integrators and end-users improve productivity, safety, and quality while reducing waste and downtime. Ask anyone about robots, and […]

            The potential for MQTT in realizing the smart city vision

            The technology industry loves an acronym, and here’s one might be new to a lot of people: MQTT. And while the acronym itself doesn’t give much away, even the expanded version – Message Queue Telemetry Transport – doesn’t help a great deal more, nor give a sense of its potential. But as a communications protocol […]
