Smart City comprises various information and engineering systems that collect data about everything that can affect residents, including traffic, public places, condition of buildings, meteorological conditions, etc.

All city services (law enforcement authorities, healthcare institutions, utility providers, federal and municipal authorities, etc.) work in a unified information environment which allows them to promptly share information and take coordinated decisions, thus spending less time and money on emergency management.

Inhabitant safety assurance is one of Smart City’s core functions. Dozens or even hundreds of thousands of sensors and video cameras cover roads, public places and buildings, sports venues, and restricted access territories to promptly identify threats, analyze them, and transmit information to relevant services.

Technology helps minimize damage and the number of victims of natural, environmental and industrial disasters. Instead of traditional control methods, monitoring tools automatically detect early disaster indications, thus allowing for early evacuation of people and reinforcement of buildings, constructions, and infrastructure objects prone to the risk of collapse.

In the case of a terrorist or criminal threat, the police and special forces can smoothly evacuate people away from a dangerous area and leverage continually updated information to apprehend felons and minimize casualties.

Comprehensive security system functionality

Continuous monitoring of infrastructure objects, residential and public buildings and constructions, crowded areas, and event venues, using video cameras, smart sensors, video analysis technologies; and intelligent real-time video processing to detect wrongdoings and emergencies

Utilities monitoring and control: acquiring and processing information from sensors and video cameras, and keeping current data on municipal (utility) infrastructure health

Industrial security assurance: operational status monitoring of hazardous production facilities and hydraulic structures

Situation analysis: automatic incident registration, search for optimal response scenarios, and maintenance of incident and resolution database

Possible scenario simulation: creation of conceptual models based on accumulated and analyzed data, and formulating of preventive organizational and technical measures

Communication with city inhabitants: «Citizen — police» and «Citizen — Situation Center» hotline terminals and media devices (information kiosks, graphic boards) are used for emergency announcements

Establishment of a unified control center for collecting and processing information about current situation, developing optimal response scenarios, coordinating activities of disparate services and authorities, and providing information support to boost interaction

Smart transportation system reduces traffic jams and ensures that public transportation processes meet the strictest service quality criteria.

Special systems collect and analyze traffic characteristics, forecast road situation changes, and ensure timely adjustment of road equipment operation algorithms, thus controlling traffic intensity. LED displays inform drivers of road situation changes in real time to help them choose optimal routes while smart stops are equipped with displays showing exact public transport arrival time, video surveillance cameras, Wi-Fi hotspots, ATMs, and service payment kiosks. In addition, integrated systems for city parking management automate the organization of parking space and monitor parking payment.

Creation of a state-of-the-art transport system may begin with several crossroads and ultimately spread over a whole city, irrespective of its size.

Functionality of a smart transportation system within a smart city

Various traffic management modes depending on the structure of street-and-road network as well as current and forecasted parameters of traffic flow in various segments. Flexible management and transport model creation algorithms evaluate the impact of changes on the entire street-and-road network, not only on individual segments which are currently being corrected

Tunnel and highway monitoring: control of lorry access, speed and weight

Video surveillance and registration of traffic violations

Informing drivers of roadbed state, current weather conditions, road situations on the nearest highways, and development of optimal bypass routes

Public transport regulation: route performance control, analysis and optimization, public transport time-to-arrival forecast, and provisioning of passengers with relevant information at stops

Road pricing and automated toll road systems

Creation of parking spaces to organize vehicle parking processes and solve organizational, legal, administrative, engineering, and technical issues

Efficient management of utilities and engineering infrastructure of buildings and constructions in a smart city helps to extend service life of equipment and engineering lines, make residential and commercial buildings more energy efficient, ensure prompt response to failures, and determine utilities optimization methods on the basis of operational indicators.

Smart energy saving technologies make it possible to reduce power, lighting and ventilation costs by 70-90% and heating and conditioning costs by up to 60% (according to research conducted by Rocky Mountain Institute, USA). Feedback from inhabitants to operating organizations (through the use of portals, interactive online services, etc.) allows all city facilities operational processes to reach a new level.

In a state-of-the-art medical center, all surgery or hybrid rooms, intensive therapy and resuscitation wards, diagnostics and treatment rooms, conference halls, and training classes are integrated into a unified medical environment. All data on current events is promptly processed for subsequent use and review and is used to dynamically update patients’ medical records in order to help doctors perform various medical procedures.

Wireless technology and continuous data collection and analysis systems help doctors to remotely check a patient’s health and promptly discover deviations from expected health indicators while medical information systems use Big Data technology to analyze symptoms and create diagnostic charts.

Smart medical system functionality

  • Creation of electronic databases of medical institutions and patients, and tools for quick identification and accessing of medical services
  • Creation of universal medical records and assurance of medical data exchange between geographically distributed healthcare institutions
  • Patient flow management: electronic doctor appointment booking, information support, patient and data routing, analysis and optimization
  • Remote patient monitoring: telemedicine, appointments via video conferencing, and use of medical terminals for prompt diagnostics in semi-automatic mode outside healthcare institutions and without involvement of medical specialists (at production facilities, in public places, etc.)
  • Automated calling for emergency medical assistance

Today, e-government functionality is becoming more open and accessible thanks to the rapid development of information systems, city portals, and interactive services, thus allowing inhabitants to remotely track progress and the results of administrative processes, submit applications electronically, and receive notifications of their status.

E-government functionality development allows individuals and organizations to use these public information systems, portals, and services in a more prompt and efficient manner.

CROC has rich expertise in both the creation of such information systems for public customers and the implementation of integration mechanisms and services for data exchange between these systems and the systems of other organizations.
