Smart cities solutions powered by Oracle

Smart mobility

Most cities around the world are overcrowded. But the solution to solving public mobility challenges isn’t another stopgap measure. It’s a smart city roadmap that charts out a smarter, more energy-efficient transportation network that improves in-city mobility for citizens, businesses and the environment.

Use cases

Smart traffic systems

  • Manage streetlights, pedestrian lights, and traffic lights to accommodate real-time traffic conditions, as well as monitor electricity consumption.
  • Regulate and track usage of parking spaces, thus saving time.

Smart transportation network

  • With transportation network integration, the city is better placed to help passengers choose the fastest, cheapest, and easiest routes for their journeys, across different modes and providers, with a single booking.
  • A real-time communication system that monitors and delivers accurate arrival information for passengers using the public transport network
Smart Mobility

Smart environment

With climate change now at the forefront of policy planning, smart cities can confront the causes of environmental impact by deploying highly integrated environmental monitoring solutions which are now available as mature technologies.

Use cases

Flood monitoring
Enable city administrators monitor and predict upcoming floods. The smart system is also designed to disseminate alerts to multiple government agencies and citizens should there be possible risk of flooding.

Water quality monitoring
Monitor along streams and rivers enables policymakers to accurately detect anomalies in the water, which could indicate pollution and illegal dumping, together with other indicators of river health such as water level.

Energy monitoring systems
Monitor power consumption across the city help city planners track real-time electricity consumption data and use advanced analytics tools to glean important insights such as city-wide energy consumption and energy wastage over time.

Smart waste management
Track the waste cycle from inception to final disposal. This includes the collection, transport, treatment, and disposal of waste, together with monitoring and regulation of the waste management process.

Smart Environment

Smart infrastructure

Hyperconnected cities are leading the way in extracting value from the deluge of data ingested from the entire city and then making it accessible to citizens and businesses. Only a modern infrastructure can provide a complete, integrated, scalable, and secure platform that supports a bold, ambitious vision.

Our data expertise with secure cloud capabilities can help you lay the foundations to deliver valuable, data-led services built on transformational technologies including AI/ML, IoT, and blockchain.

Smart Infrastructure

Smart safety

City leaders in both emerging and developed countries all have physical and digital security as their #1 priority. And as cities become more connected with the provision of data-rich digital services, cybersecurity will also be among the foremost concerns of policymakers.

Oracle’s smart safety solution for smart cities incorporates Oracle Analytics Cloud to integrate data from IoT devices, operational databases, and other sources. Combined with advanced data analytics tools, both policymakers and safety officers will be better equipped to respond more quickly and effectively to community issues, such as crime, public health emergencies and environmental disasters.

Smart Safety

Smart health

The most popular application of smart city technology in public healthcare is remote patient monitoring, with 88% of leader cities deploying this solution. Other popular and successful initiatives within smart cities are first aid alerts, environmental air-quality monitoring, and data-based public health interventions.

Use cases

Smart Citizen Services
For patients and clinicians, Oracle’s Citizen Services solution provides an easy and secure interface to access information, connect, and reduce unnecessary travel. Family Assist from Public Health West Sussex Council is a great example of how the functionality of Oracle Service Cloud can help your city provide sound professional advice with a huge range of functionalities.

Case Management
Citizens who rely on government welfare and benefits assistance in their daily lives will appreciate improved management and delivery of these programs. The Oracle Case Management solution supports end-to-end process flows—including complex financial requirements—and increases transparency and data utilization between the required agencies and departments, enabling greater efficiencies through automation.
