  • We ran into the head of environment for never be City County, he said.

  • We've installed them into vehicles to adapt them in a way that we can now understand urban infrastructure.

  • You know, I have never thoughts off counting portholes in Nairobi.

  • Most of the solution double that you will find to help you understand.

  • So that really how this project came about with the production scale off, mobile phones were ableto catch all the sensors sand off dysfunctionality at a relatively cheap prize.

  • We've got the IBM Internet off things connecting all these devices together from that were able to generate insights that tell us a lot about the road.

  • This is not just division were actually implementing this.

  • We are working with Nairobi City County.

  • We have installed in 1/4 of their waste collection vehicles.

  • We've generated models to understand the road quality.

  • These solutions here could potentially be more cost effective for some of the big cities.

  • Now you're able to address with traffic problem globally.

  • Data condemn definitely do more than we originally thought.

  • This data can be leveraged.

  • Buy other businesses because there's so much entrepreneurial energy and there's a huge tech spirit here, and this data might be part of something bigger.
