Current, powered by GE

Current, powered by GE, is a first-of-its-kind energy company, where world-class hardware technology is combined with unprecedented software technology to provide an IoT platform for smarter cities.  

To build thriving cities, Current is partnering up with city leaders to turn their ubiquitous lighting network into a digital infrastructure.  With future-proofed city in mind, Current’s CityIQ, a unique intelligent node embedded with many sensors, is extensible through over the air upgrades of analytics, connection to neighboring devices and in its ability to do multi-sensor fusion all over a secure cloud connection. CityIQ’s aesthetics allow seamless integration to a variety of streetscapes and sits elegantly on any street light pole. It transforms a cities lighting infrastructure into an all-knowing, data intelligence network.

At the heart of this IoT platform, Current’s intelligent cities API’s make the vast amount of sensor data actionable through the cloud.  These open, yet highly secured, API’s deliver real-time intelligence to cities allowing them to enhance their open data policies and begin civic engagement models. Engagement that connects citizens, the local developer community, entrepreneurs, start-ups, universities, and companies with niche expertise globally to transform that data into applications that drive new city services, optimize operations and improve citizens’ quality of life.  Just imagine, no longer will city leaders have to solve every problem on their own with limited resources, they soon will be able to enlist the greater community to help them solve their toughest issues, create new revenue streams, drive economic development and make the city a better place to live, work and play.   

Think of the possibilities for cities who leverage Current’s open, interoperable IoT platform to build its digital infrastructure that captures real-time ubiquitous data. From reducing traffic congestion, increasing pedestrian safety, driving new economic development and job creation to reducing gun violence and providing city wide Wi-Fi connections. With the ever-expanding ecosystem partners and the innovative developer community, thousands of applications can be built to drive desired outcomes for cities.

Current, powered by GE, creating the Digital City of tomorrow, today.
