Elumicate’s outdoor capture network goes live on the IoTeX testnet.
Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada: Elumicate Inc. today announced that they launched their outdoor capture network on the IoTeX testnet blockchain.
Members of the public are now able to start capturing data by installing and running a software package on their Windows 10 or above computer. This will allow them to start tracking and uploading traffic events data, while getting rewarded with ELUM tokens in the process.
The Testnet launch is the final stage of testing before the move is made to the IoTeX Mainnet and participants are accumulating token rewards that will be transferred over to Mainnet at a later date.
Network Use Cases
The Elumicate Network will enable and propel innovation in the outdoor space by providing access to real time data as it pertains to human activity. Access to this data will fuel a deeper understanding and analysis of social behaviors and trends, allowing for solutions to existing everyday problems such as traffic congestion and citizen safety issues.
Cities around the world are regularly challenged to provide better quality and more sustainable services, improve public safety, and address congestion and environmental issues. All while being tasked with reducing costs.
Scaling existing infrastructure is a human resource-intensive process that is also difficult, expensive, unmanageable, and unsupportable for most cities with limited budgets. This problem is not specific to cities, the same applies to many more industries and markets.
By eliminating the need for up front effort and capital outlay requirements, we will allow for instant and easy access to real time quality data.
- Cities will be able to better predict future infrastructure requirements, relieve traffic congestion, lower pollution levels, minimise budget costs, enhance public safety, and more.
- Retail stores, developers, road engineers, landlords, realtors, restaurants, marketers and advertisers will all benefit from traffic segmentation, exact counts, and predictive analysis for store placement, future developments, and an overall better understanding of their target markets.
- Road conditions, line monitoring, near misses, speed, debris, potholes, etc. can be reported on in real time.
- First Responders can immediately be dispatched in the events of collisions, health emergencies, crime, or natural disasters.
These are but a handful of examples of what such a network is capable of doing. Benefits will include cleaner air, shortened commute times, increased safety, lifesaving alerts, and more. We will work directly with 3rd parties in order to solve existing real world problems, advance technical innovation, and ultimately provide a higher quality of life.
