BANGALORE, INDIA: Nokia at its annual Bangalore Innovation Day today demonstrated how it is making IoT a reality for smart cities, by combining automation and intelligence with its stack of the connectivity solutions, platforms and software.

With a few innovative demos around IoT and 5G, Nokia showed how through the IoT, 5G and the smart city concepts can help cities and urban bodies to respond quickly to demographic and economic shifts, with the best use of urban resources and data.

The demos showcased how to manage the connectivity of myriad people and things, and how to eliminate “slow and complex” from creating IoT applications – and most importantly, how it can be done in a secure manner.

Among the few IoT use cases that were demonstrated at the Innovation Day, one was a smart parking solution that offers vehicle tagging to the respective slot and pre-booking.

Another use case was a public safety solution which promptly delivers warning message to people in dangerous proximity to a manned or un-manned railway crossing. It can also help authorities enforce penalty for trespassing or violation of railway-crossing rules.

All the solutions were built using Nokia IoT Cloud solution called IMPACT platform where in real time data is processed, and meaningful insights are generated through Machine learning algorithms.

Additionally, Nokia also demonstrated solutions to show how 5G will be the platform enabling growth in many industries, ranging from the IT industry to the car, entertainment, agriculture and manufacturing industries. The low latency and ultra-reliability aspects of 5G technology was demonstrated with a 5G autonomous car use case that showed how autonomous car traffic can be controlled smoothly.
