PTC has announced its participation at Smart City Expo World Congress 2016, where it will feature several new smart city solutions that have been built by partners using the ThingWorx Internet of Things (IoT) platform. PTC will have demonstrations of its smart cities solutions focused on water, utilities, lighting, city services, and buildings at the ThingWorx booth, F632.

At the ThingWorx booth, the following ThingWorx partners will be showcasing their smart city solutions:

  • Itron – Smart energy solution that optimizes solar installations via IoT field area communications and smart sensing infrastructure.
  • AquamatiX – Smart water solutions capable of monitoring and optimizing a city’s water and sewage services.
  • Synapse Wireless – The SimplySNAP smart lighting solution enables the development, control, and optimization of a smart lighting implementation.
  • Tech Mahindra –Smart city solutions and services to enable offerings such as smart energy management, smart parking, smart waste bins, smart street lighting, and security & surveillance.
  • WiseUp – A smart building solution that monitors, analyzes and manages building data to improve energy usage, maintenance, operations, and comfort.

Additional ThingWorx-powered smart city solutions include ThingFarm’s smart water and smart air quality offerings that provide real-time pollution monitoring with alerts, rules, and notifications, available for demonstration at Libelium’s booth, E505. Further, DEPsys’ smart grid solution for monitoring, control, and optimization of the modern low voltage network will be on display at European Utility Week, co-located with Smart City Expo World Congress 2016 at the Fira Barcelona Gran Via.

ThingWorx serves as the foundational platform that these partner companies use to rapidly and economically build robust smart city solutions and complementary IoT applications. The ThingWorx platform enables the rapid creation and deployment of new IoT applications and is well suited to normalize and optimize complex sets of sensors, devices, assets, and software solutions, forging a cohesive group of systems for use in smart city solutions.

“Smart cities represent a unique opportunity to apply the power of IoT to our everyday environments, and to improve the quality of the very roads, buildings, and public services that we use each day,” said Kevin O’Brien, vice president of IoT partner sales, PTC. “We want our ThingWorx platform to be at the core of the infrastructure of smart cities, enabling companies selling their solutions to cities around the world to build their solutions with speed, ease, and quality.”

“We chose the ThingWorx platform because we want to rapidly develop applications that our customers want and scale them at a rate consistent with the interest that we are seeing,” said Dr. Roberto Aiello, managing director, Itron Idea Labs.

“The ThingWorx platform is an essential component of our smart water solution,” said Laurie Reynolds, managing director, AquamatiX. “ThingWorx provides all of the necessary IoT platform components, allowing us to focus on our expertise and applications in clean and waste water management, and deliver the most robust and cost effective solution to the cities, utilities, water service, and industrial companies that we work with.”

PTC Leadership in Smart Cities and the IoT Partner Ecosystem Continues with ThingEvents

PTC will further demonstrate its leadership in enabling smart city solutions with two ThingWorx partner ThingEvents during the week of November 14, 2016.

The ThingEvents will bring together members of the ThingWorx partner ecosystem for a day of presentations and content about the ongoing development of smart cities, and how collaborations between technology providers and solution builders will more rapidly advance development, implementation, and the path to business value. There is no cost to attend the ThingEvents.

The first ThingEvent will be held on Wednesday, November 16, 2016, at FC Barcelona Stadium in Barcelona, Spain.

The second ThingEvent will be held on Thursday, November 17, 2016 at the W Hotel in San Francisco, California.
