We are becoming an increasingly urban world. According to the United Nations, by 2050, 66% of the world’s population is projected to be urban. Urbanization results in larger cities, which create a new set of infrastructure requirements.
Innovative organizations see opportunity in urbanization, to build and manage infrastructure in a sustainable way. They want to make urban environments smarter and safer—to increase operational efficiency, lower costs and promote better use of scarce resources.
Hitachi has a unique heritage that applies directly to urbanization. We combine OT, IT and IoT to deliver smart infrastructure and apply disruptive technology to help solve complex urban challenges. Our solutions use IoT, advanced analytics, simulation models and video intelligence to identify patterns and optimize facility and network controls.
