"We live in an era of rapid urbanization that presents city managers with new threats to public safety and well-being," said Mati Kochavi, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of AGT International. AGT International's solutions provide municipal and national decision-makers with actionable information, rendering one of the most complex modern environments - the 21st century city - manageable and secure. The solutions utilize data from mobile and stationary sensors, social networks, and existing urban databases, to generate a Unified Situation Awareness Picture (USAP) that provides intuitive status visualizations, triggers alerts, recommends actions, and delivers predictive and forecasting capabilities.
"Our urban management solutions enable city managers and other stakeholders to predict, prevent, prepare, and manage the rapidly evolving threats and challenges facing cities," said Paul Hucq, President of Sales and Business Development at AGT International. "With offices established in the Netherlands, the UK, Switzerland and Germany, our solutions and operations are gaining tremendous momentum throughout Europe. Along with offices in Brazil and Asia, where we have established offices in Singapore and India and have pilot schemes underway in China, our solutions will continue to help communities across the globe."
"AGT International's unique algorithms link traditional data sources with next generation sensors, allowing individuals to provide a real time community service," said Professor Lutz Heuser, Chief Technology Officer of AGT International. "In doing so, we enable willing citizens to use their smart phones for additional environmental and health services. This shared data, collected from these citizen's via their personal mobile sensors, including local environmental and health data, can be measured and analyzed. The data then gives citizens an individual and local information service in real-time."
