Event description

Description

Join the City of Stratford, ODX, eleven-x and FoxNet IoT for a panel discussion about Stratford’s Smart Parking Pilot project at the Communitech Data Hub, or online, from 12:00PM - 1:00PM EST on June 27, 2018. This Smart Parking implementation is an IoT milestone for Canadian municipalities. Stratford ensured that all data generated through the project would be open and available to the public. The event will also mark the release of this data.

Learn how the City of Stratford, ODX, eleven-x and FoxNet IoT partnered to complete this project, which embedded 78 sensors into parking spots in Stratford’s downtown core.

During this panel-style Data Hub Session:

  • The City of Stratford will provide insights into the questions that needed to be asked before pursuing this successful Smart City initiative.

  • FoxNet IoT will discuss how companies can effectively engage with governments, and how smaller IoT companies can develop a competitive advantage when competing against traditional IoT providers.

  • ODX will highlight the economic development opportunities that arise through the release of open data through Smart City projects.

  • eleven-x will provide insight on how its long range wide area network (LoRaWAN™) securely captures and transmits the data from the sensors to provide real-time communication of the location of available parking spaces.

The Panelists:

  • Naeem Khan, Manager of IT and Business Systems at City of Stratford

  • John Chiappetta, Head of IoT - North America at FoxNet

  • Kevin Tuer, Managing Director at Canada's Open Data Exchange (ODX)

  • Ryan Hickey, Co-Founder & COO, eleven-x

Lunch will be provided to those who attend in person. We hope you can join us.
