Public Solutions (Traffic and Urban Infrastructure)
Supporting the safety and security of people's livelihoods and industry through ICT
Detecting signs of failure and predicting equipment deterioration by using ICT
Energy, water, transportation and other urban infrastructure are the lifelines that support the lives of people. NEC believes that people's everyday lives can be made more secure and comfortable, and people's safety assured in the event of a disaster, by using and combining state-of-the-art ICT such as sensors, networks, and robotics.
NEC has a comprehensive catalog of ICT assets including many original analysis technologies, and moreover, we have the ability to integrate systems and implement outstanding project management.
Combining the latest ICT in this way makes it possible to prevent unplanned outages by detecting anomalies that lead to failure before they occur. This and other cutting-edge solutions are being used in a wide variety of locations, including power plants, manufacturing plants, railroads and highways, airports, bridges, tunnels and large-scale buildings.
Contributing to the safety and security of waterworks, power plants and airports in many countries and regions around the world
NEC's advanced technologies are helping to improve the safety and security of urban infrastructure around the world. For example, NEC has succeeded in using dedicated inspection robots to efficiently maintain and extend the life of sewer pipes. The robots are sent into dirty pipes to photograph the condition of the pipes from the inside. By using a combination of state-of-the-art technologies including NEC's unique image analysis technology the robots can efficiently detect faults (damage, etc.) in underground, long-distance pipes that could not otherwise be detected. This not only reduces the time and costs involved in inspecting and evaluating the conditions of sewer pipes, but also contributes to the safe and secure operation of important infrastructures.
NEC also contributes to the safe and secure operation of core infrastructure in other areas, such as by providing critical infrastructure monitoring and airport solutions in over 50 countries and regions around the world.
