Israeli firms are tying up with Brazil to develop high-tech solutions for the country’s Smart City landscaping and engineering.
Brazil has announced plans to build a Smart City from scratch in its northern territory that will house 20,000 residents of low socioeconomic status.
Three Israeli ventures have won in the 3C Smart Cities Challenge held in Tel Aviv with cooperation from the Brazilian government. The first-place winner Magos was invited to conduct a pilot in the future city.
Tyco Innovation is helping the startup distribute its products around the world. Magos offers civil security solutions, developing perimeter protection radars that Smart Cities can use to defend their borders, compounds, and strategic installations, thus replacing the need for manned patrols or CCTV in small spaces.
The technology makes available for the first time high-resolution, compact security solutions with low energy consumption and a simple installation at affordable rates to a variety of clients on the civilian market.
GreenIQ placed second develops solutions for smart management of green spaces, offering up to 50% savings in water consumption. The third place went to Pixtier, which develops an engineering system to build and plan Smart Cities.
