All modern cities in the world have utility poles with electricity. Iveda simply taps into the existing energy and equips it with Utilus. Utilus consists of an intelligent wireless mesh communications and power management network with WiFi, 4G and 5G small cell capabilities and other wireless protocols as needed.

Once the utility poles are equipped with Utilus, they communicate with each other, establishing a network that provides distributed video surveillance with AI video search technology and remote management of local devices such as trackers, water meters, electric meters, valves, circuit breakers. and sensors.

Additionally, Utilus includes an energy storage battery system for continuous operation and backup in the event of a municipal power outage. With Iveda Pole Gateway and IvedaSPS, the system acts as a microgrid to provide power to mission critical infrastructure when needed. It can also be used for electric car charging stations.

“Our smart city technologies are the culmination of nearly two decades of product development and experience in delivering cloud-based solutions,” said David Ly, CEO of Iveda. “Utilus adds a new level of security, safety and management tools for smart city initiatives. Whether it’s instantly identifying and reporting a car accident or recognizing a vehicle with a possible kidnapped child, seconds count.”

This announcement coincides with market research showing dramatic growth in the Smart City technology market. According to San Francisco-based Grand View Research, the current Smart City market is valued at $1.1 billion, with a compound growth rate of 24% through 2030. The company’s Smart City Market Report, published in March 2022, pointed to the integration of IoT, cloud computing, and AI as the main growth drivers for the industry.

The report stated that the need for sustainable infrastructure due to increasing population and urbanization has become a major driver for market growth. Governments around the world are trying to address the challenges by adopting smart city initiatives in functional segments including utility management, mobility, and security,” the report states.

Iveda’s partner in South Africa is about to implement Utilus for a smart city pilot project in an 18-acre section of a gated community in Johannesburg, estimated at over $1.5 million for the pilot project alone. More details of the project will follow.

“Our partner believes that a successful pilot would result in the deployment of Iveda’s smart city solution in Johannesburg, as well as other urban areas in South Africa,” said Ly.

Johannesburg is the 16the largest footprint of built-up urban area in the world with an estimated population of 14 million.
