“When designing our new Smart City Kiosk, we focused heavily on the features that would be useful for all stakeholders – cities/towns, citizens and visitors, and integrators,” said Brian McClimans, Vice President of Sales for Americas and APAC, Peerless-AV. “This kiosk can be used for wayfinding, contacting emergency facilities, sharing important town information like details on restaurants, local attractions, and events, providing up-to-date public transportation news, introducing interesting city facts, and even games. Plus, with an all-weather, rugged design and the ability to implement data collection sensors, the Smart City Kiosk offers something for everyone. Towns can manage resources appropriately and communicate with citizens, visitors and the community can learn more about the city, and integrators can easily install and maintain the kiosk.”
