Smart City Trends - Kiosks and Digital Signage

 

Success in growth and development of any city is dependent upon the city’s ability to provide its residents with productive tools that make their lives and everyday activities easier. Smart cities in recent years have rediscovered kiosks to be effective instruments for serving the needs of their growing cities. Digital signage, the communications tool for business advertisers and public authorities, has also become smarter. It offers more a interactive experience to the city audience that helps enhance its effectiveness.

Their increasing popularity came from the following main reasons. Kiosks and digital signage don’t require daily human interference for them to operate efficiently. Kiosks are standalone centers that are all computer-based and are programmed to do the tasks they are set to accomplish. Once deployed, these kiosks should require little maintenance. Many may be designed with machine-learning capabilities and become smarter and better over time.

The advancements of computer technologies in the past two decades have made kiosk and digital signage deployment become a survival necessity in a variety of industries. For the public sector, kiosks have become great and highly effective tools to deliver information and convenience to the public. Retail, banking institutions, medical and many other industries have increasingly seen the benefits of self-service kiosks that can meet and perform functions that serve different needs and purposes simultaneously. They can also be used as tools to capture user information and provide direct feedback about their usefulness to help the city and businesses improve.
