Gatekeeper Introduces Platform-as-a-Service for Smart City Initiatives
Abbotsford, BC – March 6, 2020 – Gatekeeper Systems Inc. (‘Gatekeeper’ or the ‘Company’) (TSX-V: GSI) (OTC: GKPRF) (FSE: 1GK) a leading provider of intelligent video solutions for public transport and smart cities, introduces its Platform-as-a-Service (“PaaS”) business model, designed to enable intelligent transportation systems for Smart City initiatives.
A Smart City is an urban area that uses different types of electronic Internet of Things sensors to collect data and then use insights gained from that data to manage assets, resources and services efficiently.
Gatekeeper’s PaaS platform is centered around the intelligent video devices that the Company is actively installing for transit authorities on multiple transportation modes. The devices are GPS equipped and interface with vehicle signals such as door open/close. The devices are wirelessly connected, which enables future software downloads and most importantly, allows public transit assets to be interconnected into the ecosystem of a Smart City.
“We are actively building out our PaaS platform in a strategy that becomes increasingly important in the emerging trend toward Smart Cities” commented Doug Dyment, President and CEO. “This platform forms the foundation on which our research & development team is evaluating future technologies designed to improve traffic flow and passenger safety.”
