Vladivostok will become a "smart" city

On June 17, in the administration of the city of Vladivostok, a round table was held on the topic “City of high technologies: reality and prospects. What is a smart-city? " The discussion was moderated by Evgeny Vekovshinin, head of the information and software department of the Vladivostok administration.

The participants, including the largest IT and telecommunications companies, discussed the prospects for the use of intelligent technologies and the best world experience of smart cities in Vladivostok, the city's press service reports.

Evgeny Vekovshinin said that a number of modern IT solutions and “smart programs” are already being actively used in the urban economy. So, for more than four years in Vladivostok, the Unified Duty Dispatch Service has been operating, which allows you to quickly receive all information about the city's vital systems and quickly resolve emerging issues. A video surveillance system has been created, cameras are installed on roads, in public places, in schools and kindergartens.

Another project being implemented in Vladivostok is an automated street lighting control system. Today, more than 44 thousand lanterns work in the regional capital (5 years ago there were 3 thousand). Energy-saving lamps, an automatic on / off system depending on the level of illumination on the street, the ability to "see" out-of-order equipment from the remote control - all this allows optimal use of resources. Last year, this control system was presented at the largest international industrial exhibition in Hanover and was highly appreciated by specialists.

The experience of introducing smart-city technologies in the international city of New Songdo (or U-City), in the Tonchun-dong district of the Yonsu-gu municipal district of Incheon (Vladivostok's twin city with 2012), was shared by Artem Rimer, Cisco Systems worldwide.

According to the expert, the “smart city” of New Songdo is still a unique project, although many cities in the world are increasingly introducing elements of intelligent technologies into their practice, including urban management. And Vladivostok has every opportunity to be and remain among such cities. Indeed, as the speaker noted, in the Russian Far East so far it was he who managed to advance the farthest on the way to a smart-city.
