Smarter City Rio de Janeiro

A few years ago I was in Brasil and browsed ridethehill.com the net to find some nice pictures and videos of Rio. I found this video on ibm.com and have to share it with you.

Rios controll system has some really nice features like

flood and landslide forecast
automated notifications to emergency personnel
weather forecast
updates available via Twitter @OperacoesRio

and Facebook at Centro de Operações Rio

and much more …

Here a second video that gives a bit more of an insight how the system is used.
