Internet of Things Platform

Denver’s Internet of Things (IoT) Platform is architected to support the variety of Denver Smart City portfolios and projects.  Built for integration and interoperability, the IoT platform connects transportation, environmental health, weather and freight data. Driving smart decisions for a smart city emphasizing safety and security.

There are three components to our IOT Platform:

Enterprise Data Management (EDM)

Our Enterprise Data Management System is the foundation, taking data from thousands of different sensors providing real-time data to the city employees of network and conditions. Data comes from resources like traffic management center, police, bus, rail, road sensors, street lights, weather sensors and universities….and many more. This data equips Denver to improve the access and utilization of city services. 


Enterprise (Sample Dashboard)

Pioneering technology to quickly analyze data and make the best use of tax-payer dollars, the Enterprise Dashboard created by the city of Denver allows for real-time decisions as well as machine learning. Delivering an improved everyday experience of living, working and playing in Denver. 



Living Lab

Denver’s Smart City lab is where we test-pilot the collected data in a controlled environment. Testing the Enterprise Dashboard Management on a smaller scale, before implementing, we leverage learnings and improvements for the greater good of the entire city improving congestion and safety.
