Is a smart city coming? – Finance
Dan Vogel comes from Sweden and lives in Mexico City, sells security cameras from Axis, and is responsible for business development in Latin America.
And he explained yesterday, during a conference, that these cameras distinguish a person from an object, or a car from a truck, and automatically recognize colors and license plate numbers.
If there are enough of them, the AI of these cameras can follow a certain white “capture” that moves only when its software detects the noise of the shot.
Meanwhile, it sends an alert signal to the control center to warn the nearby patrols; The first camera connects to other cameras in the network and determines where red lights can be set automatically to stop traffic and prevent escapes, after a potential crime has been committed.
That way, officers can show up on time to check who’s driving the truck, detain that person, and inquire about what happened. When you’re wondering why Merida is safe, it’s very likely that this system has something to do with merit.
This week, Fira Barcelona celebrates the Smart City Expo Latam conference in this Mexican city.
In short, the Yucatan governor, Mauricio Villa, boasted of the Yucatan Seguro project as a flag to specifically transform the state’s capital into a “smart city”. The program includes an increase in the number of cameras as well as traffic lights in an artificial intelligence-connected system that prioritizes pedestrians and cyclists and aims to improve their quality of life. What’s coming may be more interesting.
Much is known about this region for its food or heat, but few speak of its vast underground reserves of fresh water, an increasingly rare commodity in the world. Do you remember the monuments? It is only the visible part of very deep underground rivers that filter and carry rain from Central America to the Caribbean and the Gulf.
The issue is so sensitive that the UK government was directly involved in the development of Yucatan’s climate change law, whose initiative was ready, Villa says, and will soon be brought to the state’s Congress for a vote.
It is the legislation that can create a new economy of rewards for those who seek to take care of the environment and penalties for those who disturb it.
Mexico was selected among other countries for its high emission reduction potential.
Companies could be on the horizon. For this reason, Yucatecans seek investment from companies that enforce new standards of care for the environment and, incidentally, better wages for a society that has suffered for decades due to the poor quality of the labor supply.
The Italian shipyard Fincantieri is the most obvious target of the state government. The Italian company will build large vessels for various purposes, but will also be able to maintain cruise ships and offshore platforms, in compliance with the standards of Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ASG or ESG).
The company responsible for Giampiero Massolo has promised an investment in what could become America’s largest shipyard, in return for the expansion of Puerto Progreso, which would require 40 hectares to operate.
The API responsible for the Secretary of the Navy will soon select the company responsible for doing this work.
The arrival of that company can be compared, in the opinion of the Yucatecan governor, to the arrival of Bombardier in Queretaro, creating more value-added jobs. Potential jobs at Fincantieri can be filled by people graduating from a system of 10 technology schools with the ability to prepare “tailor-made” equipment in less than two years, whose talent is attracting more companies in the sector, in the spirit of creating the offshore bloc that pays only for subsidies” Smart City. These issues are talked about these days around the smart city.
Also, it is cheap land that many people buy precisely in Merida thanks to “Facebook campaigns”. Not many will have access. Warning.
