 The Smart City Concept

Smart cities are cities with arrays of IoT sensors and corresponding data flows, analytics and insights designed to make cities more sustainable, prosperous and inclusive. Think Engineer are positioned at the forefront of this technology.

Think Engineer offer consultation, system design and development and machine learning & AI expertise . Our unrivalled experience in IoT innovation, data science and integrated software means we can offer high value insights into the required foundations and implementation of these smart city systems, designing and building the custom sensors and software required to create secure and robust Smart City platforms.

Smart cities aren't implemented overnight, of course. Often the first requirement is data to help understand what makes the city or town centre tick. We can help obtain and, more importantly, to understand that data.


What can we offer?

Think Engineer's 360 degree approach to IoT and the smart city means we offer hardware and software development including embedded systems, machine learning, AI, electromechanical engineering, along with our extensive development of IoT data platforms and cloud services, our knowledge of a huge range of radio and network technologies and finally our back end and front end web development capabilities. Our deep understanding of the ecosystem means we can support development of all aspects of smart city infrastructure including an effective consutlation service.

Making a Smart City

Air Quality

Air quality monitoring is an obvious yet valuable use of IoT technology in a smart city. Not only being able to measure and quantify pollutants, allergens and other air quality factors but making them immediately available to the public, businesses or authority in real time. More importantly, building our understanding of the sources.


Traffic monitoring in the smart city concept with IoT technology, deploying sensors, detecting anyting from parking space occupancy or traffic queue length to vehicle types, emissions and traffic bottle necks. Not only allowing us to run smart signage and smart trafic signals to improve traffic flow but also learning about the needs of the city's road users.

Public Spaces

Measuring the occupancy level or usage of public spaces has obvious advantages in a Smart City. Knowing in advance how busy the library, swimming pool or shopping areas are is of obvious value to the public. Businesses and individual fascilities are able to impliment the best strategies for managing resources. Maintaining safety and quality of service is simplified dramatically.


By using IoT sensors in the smart city we can know where our city's waste is, what is at capacity and what needs collecting now. On the other hand, knowing what doesn't need collecting yet or where a lot of waste is being generated means waste collection and management can be far more efficient benefitting the public and businesses while saving money or making more efficient use of resources.

Water and Drainage

Using IoT sensors to monitor water levels and manage fload protection measures while also monitoring blockages and our waste water is an efficent and effective use of resources. This kind of data offers preventative opportunities to save simmions of pounds and improve lives. The safety implications and advantages in monitoring drainage are obvious.


Understanding the cities energy needs and usage helps planning sustainable and practicle energy infrastructure. More granualar insight into energy usage, bottle necks and requirements offers greater control and more effective forward planning. Energy usage data can also help the public, and businesses better underatand their own energy needs and efficiency.
