Augmented Reality : The User Interface of a Smart City

Let’s frame the problem:
IoT generates massive amounts of data
And the growth in data is at an exponential rate
So how do we create meaning from all this data?
Big Data Analytics helps us create meaning from all this data
But there is still another step that is needed, as we need to turn meaning into something we as humans can understand.
Visual processing is the fastest and most efficient way for humans to create understanding
This is the reason we have a user interface and why there is an entire field called user experience.
So what will be the User Interface of a Smart City?

  14. 14. 14 IN THE NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE
  15. 15. 15 LET’S LOOK AT SOME REAL WORLD HERE RIGHT NOW AUGMENTED REALITY USER INTERFACES FOR A SMART CITY
  16. 16. 16 • Heads Up Display – Digital overlay on the real world – Does not impede driving skills – In fact it enhances driving experience • Reverse Camera with Guide Lines – Digital overlay on the real world – Digital overlay in relation to real object (The Vehicle) VEHICLE AUGMENTED REALITY – DRIVER USE CASE
  17. 17. 17 • Business Challenge – Informing consumers around their purchasing decisions – The term free range used in egg cartons can mean very different things • Solution – Use computer vision to identify the actual product – Using farm data, display how much space • Result – Consumer are able to make informed purchasing decisions. CHOICE - CLUCKAR – CONSUMER CHOICE USE CASE
  18. 18. 18 • Business Challenge – Construction of light rail needs to take into account existing services like powerlines and water pipes • Solution – Use augmented reality to display where all the various services are actually located • Result – Helped deliver the CBD's Light Rail Early Works project LAING O’ROURKE – UNDERGROUND SERVICES MAP GEORGE STREET, SYDNEY
  19. 19. 19 • Smart Water Meter – Connected using SigFox – Sends water usage data to application • Business Challenge – To reduce cost, there is no display – Maintenance technicians need to quickly access relevant information • Solution – Computer vision identifies the individual device – Displays water usage data and maintenance records • Results – Quicker resolution of problems – Data displayed in context THE WATER GROUP – SMART METER – MAINTENANCE USE CASE Note:Thisisaproofofconcept
  20. 20. 20 • Smart Connected Bins – Internet Connected – Solar Powered – Waste Compactor & Fill Level Sensor • Business Challenge – Public engagement – Demonstrate councils sustainable waste management efforts • Solution – Computer Vision Identifies each bin – Details about fill level of all bins is used – Details on fuel and carbon emission saving are included. • Result – Public is engaged and values councils efforts to reduce wastes SOLAR BINS AUSTRALIA –SMART CONNECTED BINS Note:Thisisaproofofconcept
