Integration and Deployment of IoT and Controls


Driven to Innovate

Evari employs GIS to facilitate Smart City, internet of things (IoT) solutions. Leveraging the Esri Technology Stack (ArcGIS) and the Amazon Web Services Cloud Computing platform for a broad range of municipal GIS applications, Evari is able to empower decision makers with the crucial information needed to move forward with making their cities safer, smarter, and more resilient. 

Initial Inventory

1. Understand the assets


Having accurate, transparent, and current data is the determining factor between a successful IoT project, and a not-so-successful one. Evari has a team of trained GIS technicians who are experienced at collecting the necessary data, whether the project involves installing intelligent nodes on streetlights, or smart flow meters in storm drains.

2. Facilitate the 'Handshake'


Evari has facilitated GIS-integration for the largest adaptive, IoT streetlight control system in the United States—2.5 million streetlights in Chicago, IL. Evari staff is capable of building a schema which ensures seamless integration between the freshly collected GIS data, and the intelligent system that you are implementing.




3. Locate Intelligently


It's time to roll out the IoT Solution! Where do you put your nodes or sensors? Evari will conduct a robust GIS analysis, weighing factors such as pedestrian safety, traffic, parking enforcement, crime, or any other factors that are relevant to the project at hand. This will ensure that your IoT solution is utilized to its fullest capability.

Intelligent Node Deployment for the City of San Diego

Evari is supporting an ambitious smart city project which aims to deploy smart sensors on street lighting assets throughout the City of San Diego. These intelligent nodes form a Internet of Things (IoT) network that  monitors and enforces public safety and allows for a smart traffic solution. Evari is integral in selecting optimal smart node distribution throughout the city of San Diego based on a series of crucial, geographic factors.
