Enabling Smarter Cities and Connected Vehicles with Apache Kafka
Event Date: February 18, 2020
Hosted By: Confluent
Many cities are investing in technologies to transform their cities into smart city- environments in which data collection and analysis is utilized to manage assets and resources efficiently. Modern technology can help connect the right data, at the right time, to the right people, processes and systems. Innovations around smart cities and the Internet of Things give cities the ability to improve motor safety, unify and manage transportation systems and traffic, save energy and provide a better experience for the residents.
By utilizing an event streaming platform, like Confluent, cities are able to process data in real-time from thousands of sources, such as sensors. By aggregating that data and analyzing real-time data streams, more informed decisions can be made and fine-tuned operations developed for a positive impact on everyday challenges faced by cities.
Attendees of this webinar explored these topics and learned how to:
Overcome challenges for building a smarter city
Build a real time infrastructure to correlate relevant events
Connect thousands of devices, machines, and people
Leverage open source and fully-managed solutions from the Apache Kafka ecosystem
