Innovation and partnership are two important components in Axis business model and our success since we launched the world’s first network camera 25 years ago. We always strive to challenge ourselves, as well as our customers, partners and the industry to shape a smarter, safer world.
As a part of this work, Axis Communications is proud to be representing the best of Swedish innovation through our partnership with Sweden’s pavilion at Expo 2020. This event, which will be running until the end of March 2022, provides many opportunities to collaborate with other companies to discuss ideas and address the myriad issues that our industries face – now and in the future.
One such issue is establishing sustainable practices, especially for smart cities. As the world population continues to move to urban centers, city authorities are under pressure to ensure that innovation is geared towards minimizing the environmental impact of this shift. Addressing this problem as a single organization is impossible, due to the complex ecosystem of partners, private companies and government bodies which are at the center of the smart cities.
We were pleased to attend the Table Talks Roundtable alongside Fredrika Klaren, Head of Sustainability at Polestar and Anders Sundvik, Vice President R&D at Camfil, to discuss the roles different technologies play to support cities, and how the technologies can work together to solve challenges more efficiently. Jenny Månsson, Industry Segments Director, smart cities at Axis Communications in particular presented how video surveillance can support city officials in meeting sustainability objectives around emissions, air quality and liveability.
