Smart Cities From Hitachi

Cities are complex organisms of people, governments, businesses and organizations that require holistic yet sustainable solutions to meet their diverse needs. By collaborating with technology partners like Hitachi, governments and industries such as retail, manufacturing, aviation and transportation are implementing IoT-enabled smart spaces to improve health and safety, increase efficiency and enhance their customer experience.

The challenges of creating safer and more viable cities are constantly changing, and no two situations are alike. With its core Internet of Things platform, Lumada, Hitachi is solving these challenges by addressing individual problems and looking for ways to build smart city infrastructure in the U.S. that can scale with cities' changing needs - not by trying to fit cities' goals to a pre-packaged solution.

With its combined expertise in OT and IT, Hitachi is leveraging Lumada to develop IoT solutions for industrial and commercial infrastructure, public safety, transportation and traffic issues, among others.

With solutions such as 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 keep people moving and safe. We deliver business intelligence for retailers and downtowns so they can thrive.

Your city can now be Smart and Safe
