IoT Connectivity Enables Vegas Bleutech Park "Smart City"

By Ken Briodagh October 03, 2019

According to a recent announcement, a new $7.5 billion real estate project in Las Vegas, NV will offer renewable energy sources, autonomous vehicles, and augmented reality, among other high-tech features. The privately funded, so-called “mini-city” reportedly will include residential, office, retail, hotel and entertainment facilities.

“Over 50 percent of the world's population already lives in cities,” said Darren Sadana, CEO, Choice Business Connections. “It's projected that 68 percent will be urbanized by 2050. Given this pattern and current technological capabilities, we can expect to see more 'smart cities' begin to emerge in the near future.”

Bleutech Park Las Vegas is scheduled to break ground in December 2019 and is expected to take six years to build. Within the complex, flooring will be designed to capture and reuse the energy of human movement, and photovoltaic glass will be standard in all structures, turning building exteriors into solar panels and enabling the resources needed for heating, cooling, lighting, and electricity to be generated onsite. Security will be provided robotically via biometrics and other techniques.

The project, said Sadana, is set to provide an example of the extent to which IoT technology has come to impact mainstream companies, ordinary consumers, and the world marketplace.

“The lifeblood of smart cities,” said Sadana, “is connectivity, just as it is for smart hospitals, smart banks, and other IoT-dependent industries. It is also the lifeblood of solution providers. In managing their businesses and planning expansion, these companies should be aware that connectivity needs can fluctuate, and that it is possible to obtain accurate, current information—including pricing and contract requirements—about this essential commodity.”
