Cortex is a smart and safe city device that delivers 20+ convenient public services to communities for free. Services include chilled and sparkling water, convenient charge stations for personal devices and blitzing Wi-Fi for internet access and VOIP calls for work or pleasure.
By introducing new digital services and upgrading many existing public services into a single point of presence, Cortex solves multiple problems faced by modern government, businesses and communities.
This includes cutting costs, digitising infrastructure and improving access to services that support community safety, tourism, local business and productivity.
Cortex improves the safety, vibrancy and productivity of our urban areas by providing free and convenient access to 20+ digital and in-demand services.
It simultaneously upgrades common forms of public infrastructure that include maps, bubblers and duress systems, while it introduces new, exciting digital services such as free public phone calls, air quality monitors and streaming news and weather.
Cortex Synapse refers to the integration or communication between various Cortex components.
Like a smartphone with a camera, touchscreen and internet connection; Cortex componentry can be used in any combination to solve problems, or to deliver intelligent, responsive services.
An example is the combination of our Duress System, CCTV cameras, Speakers and VOIP connectivity: this allows emergency services to see and communicate with a user upon activation of our Emergency Help Point. The VOIP, Speakers and Digital Screens may be used in emergency situations to facilitate crowd control, or to support tourism programs.
Further: footage may be stitched and announcements simultaneously displayed across multiple Cortex structures – the “Cortex Net” – to maximise coverage.
- Also see: What is Cortex Net
Cortex Net refers to the connectivity between multiple Cortex structures or installations. This increases the geographical coverage and access to services.
Data and services across a network of installations may be stitched together to optimise service access and safety outcomes.
By simply working smarter; Cortex delivers savings and income for asset owners, while servicing the public for free. Digital out-of-home media offsets the cost.
It Saves: Infrastructure implementation costs and ongoing maintenance expenses are reduced by more than 50%. Cortex does this by digitising many services and consolidating multiple infrastructure installations into a single point of presence.
It Earns: On top of the savings, digital out-of-home media opportunities offset installation, operation and maintenance costs.
