Smart Cities From Hitachi

Cities are complex organisms of people, governments, businesses, and organizations, which require holistic solutions that address the needs of all stakeholders. Through collaborative creation with our customers and partners, Hitachi is providing the Internet of Things (IoT) solutions that are helping cities to become safer, more efficient and convenient, while driving economic growth.

The challenges of creating safer, more viable cities are constantly changing, with no two situations exactly alike. Through its core platform for the Internet of Things, Lumada, Hitachi solves these challenges by addressing individual issues and looking for opportunities – not by trying to fit cities’ goals to a pre-designed solution. Using Hitachi’s combined OT and IT expertise, we use Lumada to create IoT solutions that work with infrastructure, safety and transportation problems, among others, and adapt and scale as cities’ needs change.

With solutions like Hitachi Video Analytics (HVA) and Hitachi Visualization Suite, we help public safety organizations gain real-time situational awareness and tools for data-driven policing. We deliver operational intelligence to airports and transportation agencies to help them keep people moving, and safe. We deliver business intelligence to retail and downtowns, so they can thrive.
