The Panel

Smart Cities are fitted with hundreds & thousands of sensors measuring everything from road traffic to power usage, giving administrators vast amounts of data to help them plan & manage their cities. But what about the human side of Smart City tech? How does the average resident or visitor benefit from Smart City technology? Can real time data insight be provided to the average person so that they can take action? What about the small businesses & merchants? How can a Smart City drive economic development for everyone so that even small businesses can take advantage of these ladders of opportunity?

The Presentation

Loud-Hailer is a technology company that is building scalable Bluetooth mesh networks in different cities in the US & India. Their BUKI network is an integrated solution providing hyperlocal services & engagement for large venues such as convention centers, stadiums & arenas. Users of the BUKI network can receive hyperlocal information relevant to where they are (at a 250 foot radius) as they make their way around a city. Examples of these hyperlocal services include 3D indoor wayfinding, remember your parking spot, in seat ordering / order ahead, hyperlocal discovery, & proximity engagement. An intriguing aspect of the BUKI network is its public & private nature. Not just convention centers & stadiums but restaurants & shops that cater to those visitors can also join the BUKI network simply by hosting BUKI engagement points. This allows the small businesses to broadcast hyperlocal offers, capture footfall data & join the network effect. All for a fraction of the cost of building & promoting their own apps.
