Samsung SDS has announced that it is working with Telensa on the Urban Data Project – a cloud platform that builds a trust infrastructure for urban data that allows cities to gather, protect, and use the data for the welfare of the public.
The partnership will break the ground of the project in South Korea and then take it further across Asia Pacific and the US. Cities will financially benefit from energy savings and will have access to a massive ecosystem of sensor applications by integrating the Telensa PLANet streetlight control application within Samsung SDS Brightics IoT platform.
“We are delighted to be working with Telensa to enable cities to harness and protect their urban data assets on behalf of their citizens,” said Sean Im, senior vice president of solution business division at Samsung SDS. “Brightics IoT will provide effective data collection and analytics, which will lead to improved quality of life for citizens.
“By combining the capabilities of both companies, Samsung SDS plans to further explore new possibilities to adopt the latest information technologies, including AI and blockchain.”
