Living PlanIT and Halcyon Solutions to support DoT smart city projects
The two firms will combine their expertise to develop technologies for smart city projects across the country
Living PlanIT and Halcyon Solutions have inked a strategic collaboration today to support U.S. Department of Transportation (USDoT) smart city initiatives across the country.
Under the terms of the agreement, the two companies will combine their expertise in developing technology solutions for IoT and smart city projects in order to assist cities in implementing solutions for transportation, healthcare and public safety.
The two firms will combine Living PlanIT’s smart infrastructure platform (PlanIT Urban Operating System) with a suite of Halcyon’s IT resources.
This collaboration with Living PlanIT is a further demonstration of Halcyon’s commitment to leveraging best-in-class technology to meet social and business objectives,” Sanjay Dudaney, President of Halcyon Solutions, said.
“We are delighted to be working with Halcyon to help cities across the United States bring innovative technology to bear on real-world problems. Cities are historically made up of siloed systems operating independently, which can make it difficult to create efficient and responsive services,” Dan Byles, VP Head of Corporate Development for Living PlanIT, said.
“Gathering, managing and curating the massive amounts of data generated in a city environment is not trivial. Extracting meaning from the data, so that safe and timely decisions and interventions can be made, is even harder. Living PlanIT is the market leader in applying innovative technology to the urban environment to integrate services and to unlock the power of real-time data and analytics,” he said.
Byles also said that the company has worked with governments and cities around the world, including leading the U.K.’s National Internet of Things (IoT) Demonstrator Project at London City Airport. “We strongly believe that our technology, coupled with Halcyon’s deep domain knowledge and experience, will help cities across the US to enhance city services and improve the quality of life for citizens,” the executive added.
