Smart Slough comes to life through SSE Enterprise’s new Smart City IoT platform

Slough Borough Council has become the first UK local authority to utilise SSE Enterprise’s new Mayflower Smart Cities and Places platform.

By exploiting Slough Borough Council’s existing Mayflower Smart Control smart lighting network, the local authority will be able to consolidate sensor and device data into a single platform. Data from smart sensors and devices installed across the Slough borough will be integrated through a range of communication protocols.

Mayflower Smart Cities and Places allows Slough Borough Council to view data at varying levels of detail through customisable drill-down dashboards, whilst providing the opportunity for data sharing with third parties through multiple export formats. This will enable app developers to create bespoke solutions for localised challenges, such as flood risks and winter gritting routes, which can be accessed directly through the platform’s App Hub.

Existing smart devices such as weather stations and air quality sensors are already reporting data into the Mayflower Smart Cities and Places platform. Slough Borough Council has plans to extend this in the coming months to include devices such as road surface temperature sensors and environmental sensors. This will include ecological data from Slough Borough Council’s Urban Forest project, a pilot designed to improve quality of life for residents whilst reducing carbon emissions. In addition, Mayflower are developing monitoring of traffic and people technology to help inform local authority services.

Analytic capabilities will form part of Mayflower Smart Cities and Places, providing insight and information on key performance indicators to support informed decision making and policy formation. By consolidating and analysing environmental data, Slough Borough Council will soon be able to identify key areas to address in their Low Emission Strategy as they strive towards net zero by 2050.

Cllr Rob Anderson, Cabinet Member for Transport & Environmental Services, added: “We are keen to work with SSE Enterprise to determine how best to deploy this platform to support our Smart Slough initiatives. This will prove invaluable in helping to manage the quality of our local environment and taking active steps toward achieving Net Zero.”

Niall Riddell, Smart Systems Innovation Sector Director, SSE Enterprise, said “We are delighted to have provided our Mayflower Smart Cities and Places platform to Slough Borough Council who are a true pioneer in the smart cities space.

“This is an important step in our ability to deliver powerful IoT platform tools to enable digital solutions for our customers and enable them to better understand their cities and experiences. We look forward to working with Slough Borough Council to further enhance this solution.”
