Clark County, Nevada, is partnering with NTT to deploy a smart park pilot in one of Las Vegas Valley’s largest and most popular parks.
The project at Sunset Park will focus on two specific use cases: park occupancy and notification; and vehicle counting.
NTT Smart Solutions are designed to calibrate and curate data to reveal trends, discover insights and generate predictive analytics. By leveraging optical sensors, NTT’s technology will help count and predict utilisation of the park and its facilities, as well as vehicle volumes in and out of specific roads within the park and near parking lots.
A web-based management dashboard will present real-time visualisations and predictive analysis in a singular pane of view to optimise and improve operational awareness and responsiveness within the park premises.
By deploying NTT Smart Solutions in this smart park occupancy pilot, Clark County will be able to derive actionable insights for key stakeholders to drive better decisions and outcomes and set forth a foundation for future smart park initiatives.
“Sunset Park is one our largest and most popular parks in the Las Vegas Valley,” said Clark County Commission vice chairman, Jim Gibson, whose district includes the park. “The data from this project will help us to better understand how the park is utilised so that we can respond with solutions as necessary – not only at Sunset Park but at other recreational facilities across the county where we may deploy this technology.”
NTT Smart Solutions were initially conceived to enhance public safety and improve urban mobility in 2018. The solutions were introduced in Southern Nevada and NTT’s continued expansion in this region is a cornerstone to the growth of these solutions.
Akira Shimada, senior executive vice president, NTT said: “This is a very important milestone for NTT. At the end of 2018, NTT reached an agreement to advance and accelerate smart technologies across Southern Nevada. Today, we are pleased to demonstrate that we continue our partnership and our efforts to support Clark County and the region of Southern Nevada to become leaders for smart project in the country.”
The smart parks initiative is one of the latest partnership projects between the City of Las Vegas and NTT to gain actionable intelligence to inform decision-making. By tapping into predictive trends, the city can plan more proactively as opposed to simply reacting to incidents as they happen. Working with Dell, NTT has developed an intelligent edge model where the processing is done closer to the point of data collection. Find out more in our Las Vegas City Profile.
NTT Smart Solutions have also been implemented by other clients in several industries. This includes the University of California, Berkeley for kerb management, Indycar for improved fan experience, Chicago’s Navy Pier for increased situational awareness, transit agencies for passenger safety and NZCIS for improved training experience.
