Urban planners and social anthropologists alike think of large groups of individuals, such as organizations and cities as a superorganism. Urban metabolism is the new language that describes the urban flows of supplies and waste within a city in terms of biological flows within an organism. In this metaphor, streetlights have metamorphisized to become the nervous system and information backbone of the smart city superorganism. Their ubiquity makes them natural nodes for wireless communication and IoT sensors over the urban landscape.
to true Distributed Intelligence
The Nemalux IntelliPoletakes the smart city concept to the next level. Our innovative Wide Area Neural Network (WANN) architecture pushes the boundary of the superorganism metaphor, creating its sensorimotor system. It combines 1) a network of IntelliPolesincluding: connected lighting, IoT sensors, wireless communications, projector and camera; with 2) Nemacloudsoftware, including: AI, data analytics and recommendation engine; and most importantly, 3) human behavioral feedback from you, the user, and intelligent machine feedback to you, to create next-generation distributed intelligence. This is a new kind of intelligence that will allow organizations and wide area data to merge and work together seamlessly.
IntelliPole – Sensors and Nerve Fibres
The IntelliPoleis the neuron of the Superorganism. It is an outdoor lighting pole designed for the most extreme operating conditions which converges inputs such as IoT sensors, cameras, microphone, and outputs control signals, lighting, audio, video output, and human recommendations. A wireless network of IntelliPolescreate the distributed nervous system, collecting and shuttling vast amounts of data and business intelligence from the sense organs back to the central nervous system for analysis, pattern recognition and ultimately signals for machine control and human language recommendations to optimize the performance of human agents.
IoT – the sense organs
If the IntelliPoleis the neuron, then the IoT sensors provide the Superorganisms its sense organs, detecting aspects of the environment important to the smooth function of your organization. Through connected lighting and a distributed network of sense organs, Nemacloudkeeps its fingers on the pulse of your organization or an entire city.
WANN – the Sensorimotor system of the Superorganism
The reality of many organizations is that both their clients and infrastructure can exist across large spaces that can span an entire city and beyond Timely information collected from an array of IoT, camera and other sensors provide a rich sensory stream of inputs for the Nemacloudbrain to analyze, perform pattern recognition and make heuristic suggestions. The output of Nemacloudbrain is like the body’s motor control system, used to send insights, recommendations and control to streamline your organization’s operations. With Nemacloud, it’s easy to customize your sensor-based IoT network to improve cost efficiency, productivity, and safety across your organization or entire city.
Nemacloud – the Brain of the Smart City
Wireless communications are the nerve fibres carrying all the IoT and camera data from IntelliPoles into Nemacloud, the brain of your superorganism. This is where all the magic happens. Nemacloudsoftware is the brain that unleashes the power of machine intelligence to create a human-centric HMI paradigm. Powerful algorithms, pattern recognition and data analytics will empower your organization with human-centric automation, and shift the goal post from a smart city, to an intelligent one.
