Smart poles can identify risk factors by detecting unusual sounds such as street fighting or car crashes using their artificial intelligence (AI)-based closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras. The street poles, also equipped with free WiFi service broadcasting devices, internet of things (IoT) sensors and lights, can create big data to help entrepreneurs gain more customers and reduce traffic congestions.
Seoul said in a statement on September 9 that it will demonstrate seven smart poles that have EV and drone charging functions. EV-charging street poles will be installed in three different parking lots located near popular parks and crowded areas. Among the seven smart poles, three will support drone charging. Lifesaving drones will land on the top of the poles for charging.
Through a three-month demonstration of smart poles that took place in Seoul in February 2021, the capital city found that integrated street poles are useful for monitoring the city and providing free WiFi services. The city will install 211 smart poles by the end of 2021. According to Seoul, all-in-one smart poles can save up to 12 percent in operating expenses.
