Melbourne-based artificial intelligence solutions provider SenSen Networks has released an app named GeminEYE that it claims will, for the first time, provide services for a smart city on one's smartphone.

The company said in a statement that the app would initially have two services: parking enforcement and real-time detection of illegal dumping. The ability to enforce parking restrictions would be made available first.

The users of the app can select the service they require and the software will then analyse feeds from its sensors and cameras. The activities that are sought will be sent to SenBOS, SenSen's cloud-based back office platform, for verification.

The company pointed out that illegal dumping cost Australian councils about $80 million annually.

SenSen Networks chief executive Dr Subhash Challa said the app would be a "game changer" for governments, cities and councils, and provide a cost-effective solution.

“Cities worldwide provide their citizens with a variety of civic services, including fair parking and guidance solutions, as well as ensuring they are safe and clean to live in," said Dr Challa.

"Technology is greatly enhancing the civic services cities can provide, but the cost of today’s specialist equipment and technology is prohibitively expensive for most cities in the world.

“We wanted to change that and make these solutions affordable, accessible and reliable to every city all over the globe. GeminEYE does that.

"This breakthrough technology lets us deliver a higher level of intelligence and services compared to existing world-class infrastructure analysis solutions at a much lower cost.

"This is helping us to usher in a new era of smart cities worldwide, and is helping our customers to make roads safer, cities smarter and businesses more productive.”

GeminEYE has open APIs and can be integrated with third-party software platforms to deliver integrated end-to-end solutions for smart cities. The company said it was working with parking solution providers to provide an integrated, digital parking management solution.
