Owing to Internet of Things (IoT), the volume of Live Data is expected to grow exponentially for the foreseeable future. In this regard, a recent Cisco report (from June 2017) mentioned, in part, the following:
* There will be 3.5 networked devices per capita and 27.1 billion networked devices by 2021.
* Live internet video will make up 13% of internet video traffic by 2021.
* Live video will grow 15-fold from 2016 to 2021.
* IDC is predicting 44 zettabytes of newly created data by 2020 and 165 zettabytes by 2025.
* Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) traffic will increase 20-fold between 2016 and 2021 globally, a compound annual growth rate of 82%.
The above highlights the dire need for a generic high throughput and ultra-low latency messaging and reactive platform which can democratize the availability of Live Data and real-time processing. To this end, Satori recently announced its Live Data platform. The platform can potentially be leveraged in a very wide variety of domains. For instance, Satori's platform can be used to help realize the promise of Smart Cities along the following fronts:
* Transportation: Fleet management, smart logistics, smart roadways, connected vehicles
* Safety: Emergency response, pedestrian and bike safety, crime forecasting, flood detection
* Environment: Energy efficiency, air quality, water management, smart street lighting
In this talk, we shall walk the audience through the architecture of Satori, its salient features and a concrete country-scale case study. In particular, Satori has partnered with the New Zealand Transportation Agency (NZTA) to deliver a Mobility as a Service (MaaS) Marketplace of smart city apps and services that reduce traffic congestion in high-growth urban areas. Satori is closely collaborating with public agencies and private transit agencies in New Zealand for NZTA's MaaS project. In collaboration with site planners, data managers, and city administrators, Satori is coalescing streaming data feeds from all transportation data sources into a single live and reactive open data channel for the entire country of New Zealand.
