As humanity enters a new era of connectivity and smart technology, we are witnessing the evolution of a world where devices and machines are rapidly integrated with each other, more numerous, and increasingly ubiquitous in all aspects of our daily lives.
As a pioneer in AIoT technology, AI cities and a global smart service provider, Terminus Group is one such company that is leading the way in helping humanity realize that future. To this end, the company has looked to address these needs and has now outlined a five-dimensional approach to AI City development.
To meet the needs of both operators and users of a smart or AI city ecosystem, various components such as software platforms, hardware, and digital information, all need to have the necessary capabilities to both establish a new paradigm for urban living, yet also be adaptable to inevitable future enhancements and changes. These capabilities include flexible software definition, dynamic adaptation, ubiquitous interconnection, and natural interaction.
Enter Terminus Group's TacOS 3.0 - an AIoT-based software and hardware platform that operates on an integrated five-tier technical platform, which enables city-wide operating systems to manage all functions and application scenarios, in smart or AI cities. The company's proprietary platform-based technology bringing this together consists of the following: CityIoT, CityOS (or Terminus AI CITY Operating System – TacOS), CityAI, CityAPP, and CityStudio.
Founder and CEO of Terminus Group, Victor Ai, commenting on the approach the company is pursuing to bring about the necessary evolution of smart cities into AI cities, said:
"Terminus Group has created a five-dimensional digital urban spatial model, based on its TacOS 3.0 technology, enabling improved spatial operation efficiency and cross spatial connection efficiency. Ultimately, the aim being is to improve smart or AI city user experiences and support the long-term, sustainable development of all smart or AI cities."
The five-dimensional urban digital spatial model is best explained by breaking it down into its component parts. They are:
1st Dimension – System Integration: One-dimensional space management system in the digital world integrates the core smart and intelligent systems into a digital platform. The association and interaction between digital information is limited.
2nd Dimension – Digital Fusion: Emphasizing scenarios, fusing digital information within a scenario to facilitate cross system interaction.
3rd Dimension – Scenario Connection: Pulled together by cross scenarios motion lines, "applications" can overlap with each other in different scenarios in space.
4th Dimension – Distinguishing People and Identifying Time: Designing an experiential journey for typical characters that can dynamically adapt to their mindset and environmental needs, while connecting smart and intelligent scenarios.
5th Dimension – Beyond Space: By implementing the STSL industry standard, breaking the physical boundaries of buildings, communities, parks and urban areas, achieving Space as a Service and supporting an enterprise's comprehensive operational development.
"AIGC and big model technology are accelerating the era of smart and connection development, and ubiquitous operating systems will become the operating systems of the new era," Victor says.
"What we are doing is to further deepen the sustainable integration and innovation of AI and IoT technology, as well as working together with a wide range of ecosystem partners of industry and academics to promote research on the application field of universal operating systems. In doing so, we are striving towards creating a better life for human beings with better smart intelligence and connectivity," he concludes.
