What Benefits Will Smart Cities Bring?

There are many benefits of being a smart city, including:

  • Pollution reduction due to smart parking and better bin collection
  • Fertiliser reduction because of better water and crop management
  • Increased productivity for local Australian industries thanks to asset tracking, predictive maintenance and smart monitoring
  • Wearable GPS and fall detection systems to help monitor individuals in the community

Position Partners and Thinxtra are delighted to be combining their infrastructure network. AllDayRTK, which is owned by Position Partners, currently consists of many high precision base stations. These currently deliver millimetre level precision for surveying, construction and agriculture applications.
