There is little interactive information on busy city streets. Visitors and residents can use multiple apps on devices to search for information, but there isn’t a consolidated way to access nonemergency, emergency services and local information.
Goals and Objectives
Cities are looking for new revenue opportunities, ways to provide ubiquitous public WiFi, market local business, and provide quick access to services and information to the public on the street.
Smart kiosks are specifically designed units, most of which include (interactive) display panels, WiFi signaling, and emergency call services.
Use Case Summary
Smart kiosks provide a public, one-stop shop for emergency and nonemergency services, local transportation, business, and other relevant information. They typically offer phone charging and free public WiFi and use advertising as a revenue model.
