Re: AT&T has GE and FirstNet for smart cities

@mhhf1ve but such things already exist. Hyperlocal air quality measurements is exactly the type of information that  Breezometer  delivers. And BTW while I had actual trees in mind, apparently there are artificial ones that are actually put in some cities. It's called CityTree, though one supposedly has the clearing air capacity of 275 real trees

Developed by Germany's Green City Solutions (GCS), these sculptural structures contain specific plants to remove the dust, nitrogen dioxide and ozone gases from our low-lying smog.

Often doubling as billboards or benches, these have been designed to fit where there simply isn't space to plant the real deal.

Each tree offsetS 240 tonnes of CO2 equivalents per year, GSC's Tina Hensel told The Memo.

Is there an AppStore for Smartcities?
> "Those applications and that device, in essence, become an iPhone for municipalities..."

I have to wonder who operates what apps can run on top of this platform? If the analogy is the iPhone, who owns the smartcity appstore? Is it GE? AT&T? The municipal government?

Well, that might logically seem correct, but there's a huge engineering difference between measuring a small amount of a pollutant that shouldn't be in the air at all -- versus measuring a small change of a component of air that almost defines what air is. 

And.. welcome to the surveillance state, everyone! You're on camera all the time....

Re: AT&T has GE and FirstNet for smart cities
<It has camera feeds and sensors for detecting hazardous gases in the air, gunshots or high decibel level noises that could be associated with a bomb.>

A couple of observations on this. 1 is that if it is detecting components of air, it should also be able to pick up on air quality changes to track what changes have an impact. For example, then, if trees are planted nearby, the sensors should be able to pick up on differences in air quality that result.

2. I'm surprised that it includes something like detecting gunshot s because there are services that focs on that specifically already in place in some cities. They entail not just the sound detection but the system of conveying the information for rapid response.

AT&T has GE and FirstNet for smart cities
This is great that AT&T has GE and First Net. GE does appliances and FirstNet has information technology or something. With all of them together will be better in a way as it relates to us and them.
