The second scenario is the creative city and shows how ICT solutions canensurea quality network user experience for the audience even during denselypopulatedcultural or social events such as concerts. The third scenario, the greenercity, demonstrates a heatwave and how a city can manage such conditions bytaking advantage of smart grids.
These three demos show how patterns of behavior can be identified byanalyzingand combining feeds of data and situational knowledge stemming from thesescenarios.
Experts can then work with the results of the analysis to make intelligentandcontextual recommendations for different scenarios.
Window of Opportunity
Ericsson will also offer a sneak peek into an exploration project calledWindowof Opportunity, in which Ericsson tests what happens when ordinary glasswindowsget connected and act as connectors.
Ericsson will demonstrate how by using a transparent antenna, an ordinarywindowcould easily become part of the mobile broadband network, boosting indoorcoverage and providing a great mobile experience inside buildings or whentakingpublic transportation to work. By connecting the windows on a bus, forexample,the bus can become an extended office or a haven where you can unwind withentertainment. Windows could be used as a whiteboard that capture what youhavewritten and e-mails you the notes and much more.
Connected windows offer a spectrum of new and exciting possibilities suchasautomated blinds and cloud control for ventilation, lights, and more,benefitingpeople, businesses and society. The connected window also presentsopportunitiesto reduce a building's energy consumption. And by adding transparent solarcellsto produce electricity, these applications can power themselves and deliverexcess energy into the smart grid.
