The $800B events industry is antiquated. Huge gaps exist between cities and events. EQ is a mobile platform that streamlines traffic, navigation, crowd control, and security in real time around crowded environments while collecting critical data and analytics. Vasta will soon unveil this next-generation suite of event and venue planning services and digital simulation platform. The EQ Platform was made for cities of any size; public safety; citizens/visitors; fans/non-fans; and for organizers.
TrueMed will change the brand protection market with modern AI based software approach for detecting originals and counterfeits around the world. TrueMed’s innovation is the next generation method for rapidly detecting goods, at any point of distribution, by customs or even consumers. It can be used by brand owners and authorities in global and cross-border collaborations. It is 100% non-additive, hence very cost-effective, agile, and capable of being adopted to different use cases.
Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure - a vital component of London’s smart and green agenda - is being delivered by a wide range of public and private bodies across London (up to 50). As a result of the project, we developed a dashboard to join up the EV Charging infrastructure in London to enable a collective understanding of what is already in place, how it is being used, and to guide future installations.
The Reducing Friction in Trade (RFIT) project was initiated in March 2019 as a proof of concept to establish how blockchain distributed ledger technology and associated technologies can be used to seamlessly integrate supply chain data with HM Revenue & Customs and the Food Standards Agency’s systems. The project intends to do so by guaranteeing the timeliness and provenance of critical data and avoiding the need for discrete declarations.
The Mobile Networks Data for Official Statistics project seeks to provide an end-to-end generic production framework for using data generated by mobile networks, which can be adapted to the different statistical needs and statistical domains through a modular approach. It produces a robust, mathematically sound solution to improving timeliness and relevance of official statistical products in order to meet a concrete need of statistical data users.
Measuring motorcycle helmet use is critical for countries to target enforcement and measure the impact of new laws for road safety for motorcyclists. Current methods to measure helmet use are time-consuming and costly and involve roadside observation and review of hospital records. This novel method, using street imagery and crowdsourcing internet marketplaces, has the ability to revolutionize how this life-saving intervention is measured by dramatically reducing time and cost.
The last field survey done in the UAE was in 2005 and since then the Ministry has been relying heavily on statistical data from the 2005 survey, thus creating the need to have a new agricultural survey done with high accuracy, speed, and low cost. A drone-enabled aerial mapping system was used to generate high-resolution highly efficient aerial data over 1100 square kilometre within 12 months, at a cost of less than five times the cost of a field survey, and obtaining 52 parameters statistical…
Despite a growing elderly population, there is currently little articulated-demand or offerings in Israel by way of community-based services preserving functional ability in old age. This innovation from the JDC Eshel addresses this, by integrating digital tools and an inter-organizational work process, including: • A digital system providing personally adapted information on services in geographical area and recommendations for successful aging. • A multi-disciplinary and…
Mi Taxi, My Cab, part of Mexico City’s App, was created to boost trust in the public cab network by making the service safer. It provides information about the drivers and the cabs' public concessions. Users can rate the trip and activate a panic button connected to the City’s Intelligence Agency, C5. Negative perceptions of safety among the public lead the Government to grasp the situation faced by drivers and users, particularly women, and thus developed the initial phase of the app,…
Fotocívicas is a behaviourally inspired traffic control system that relies on educational and civic fines aiming to transform drivers’ behaviour by reducing recidivism and licensing effect among offenders. It sets out to change the previous system, which was based on monetary fines with cameras placed where drivers were more prone to speed, not where more fatalities happened, without improving behaviours or road safety
