SMART CITY

Smart Cities are communities that consciously use information technology to transform life and work relations within its territory. In this context, GAESI acts as a driving force for the formation of these spaces on three fronts: urban janitorial, through the collection of eletronic data and georeferencing with the aim of creating municipal situation rooms and surveillance systems in several areas; tax management, through automation of eletronic tax documents issue, and urban mobility working as a planner in the field of automation and system integration (traffic with transport systems) and of logistics for the implementation of transport policies and circulation that aims to provide a wide and democratic access to the space.

 

GAESI'S PROJECTS ON THE SMART CITIES FIELD

TRAFFIC SIGNAL INTEGRATION - CITY OOF SÃO PAULO

The traffic lights of the city of São Paulo have 3 types of proprietary technology and they do not communicate with each other. The project uses open protocol to allow traffic signal integration. It applies the open protocols UTMC (Urban Traffic Management & Control), developed and widely applied in the UK, and NTCIP (National Transportation Communications for Intelligent Transportation System Protocol), developed and largely used in the United States. It should be emphasized that this project allows cities to create a center for urban mobility integrating, for example, traffic systems with transport systems.

URBAN JANITORIAL - CITY SÃO PAULO

Creation of situation rooms to improve the management capacity of the city through electronic data and georeferencing. The adoption of these technologies allows to integrate real-time information collected by its external employees to the central administration. The Immediate communication and feeding of database directly by eletronic documents (created for the perfomance of services) optimizes and provides effciency to the work performed. In addition to these benefits, the indicators created will help the manager to make a more adherent decision to the conditions of the city.

 

LOG-MOB

Technical support for the creation and development of the Laboratory of Logistics, Urban Mobility and Environmental Implications (LOG-MOB) of the Fundação Paruqe Tecnológico de Santos. The mission of this laboratory is to improve mobility and logistics processes through research, development, simulation and predictive study, always with the adoption of a systemic and interdisciplinary view. These improvements (of logistics and mobility) allow an increase, respectively, in service accordance with the demands and in quality of life, always considering the efficiency, sustainability and the ethical commitment to the process.

TAX MANAGEMENT 

SECRETARY OF FINANCE OF THE STATE OF SÃO PAULO

SECRETARY OF FINANCE OF THE CITY OF SÃO PAULO

 

Automation of issuing tax documents in order to eliminate accessory obligations and to prevent tax evasion. The documents issued electronically follow the conditions established by Provisional Measure No. 2,200-2 and are endowed with legal validity. Additionally, the entire operation is recorded with a time stamp of operations which is controlled by the tax authorities. In this context, electronic documents are guaranteed for authenticity, integrity and non-repudiation. In other words, it is known who generated the document, if the document has no changed and the author of the document can’t deny his authorship.

TRACK AND TRACE

Track and Trace is the ability to trace back and to follow up the path, application, location and use of product, which is extremely important for company logistics and quality control.

In this field, GAESI acts in strategic planning through track and trace solution’s research. Its main areas of expertise are secure supply chain and traceability applied to animal protein, medical drugs equipment control with access restrictions.

GAESI'S PROJECTS ON THE TRACK AND TRACE FIELD

EQUIPMENT CONTROL AND RESTRICITON OF ACCESS TO CONTROLLED AREAS PILOT – PETROBRÁS

Creation of an integrated monitoring environments computer system to control equipment in controlled areas. The monitoring will be possible through the implementation of an integrated solution for system, equipment and services, with the concept of Virtual or electronic Fence, and the development of methodologies and tools employing RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology.

TRACEABILITY APPLIED TO THE SUPPLY CHAIN
