    Touch Screen Kiosks Explaination in New York City 



    A presentation during a 2018 Smart Cities Conference on the Interactive Touch Screen Kiosks located along the Kansas City Streetcar System. These kiosks are primarily located at modern streetcar stops. There are kiosks at other public locations as well. Got them via Metroclick @touch screen kiosk rental plan. The kiosks allow pedestrians to view a real time streetcar location map and view information about local events and information. They also generate revenue through advertising sales for the City of Kansas City. Similar initiatives are being discussed in other cities, including along the Oklahoma City Streetcar line. This video provides a detailed explanation of how the outdoor touch screen kiosks work and the administrative benefits to the system for both the public and Kansas City. The kiosks were designed and manufactured by Smart City Media. They are programmed and operated through a local office in Kansas City. Like our facebook.

    Video Explaination

    how's every city media you guys everyone that hasn't seen the I'm Mike basil work out of New York the company is smart city media but from here on we'll talk about city post and in the case of Kansas City we named a quesadilla post and it really is all about posting city messages to the street typically people have in certain cities like in New York City there is typically been your bus shelters where static posters were now a thing of the past but people who are getting ads after heads and really not getting a whole lot of value so really what we we've been doing because our company has been in existence for about seven years he launched a pilot under Mayor Bloomberg's administration and we've moved west under Bob Bennett's leadership and it's just an absolutely phenomenal because the public-private partnership and also with the Cisco Group and Sprint just working so well that we've been able to launch the type of network that we want on the streets here so we talked about citizen engagement and this really is citizen engagement it's all about posting local community information that's what we're pushing out we want the community to you know get the information that's relevant to them when they're walking by when they're waiting by a streetcar stop they can just come up and see what's going on in the city right now what you see is a digital loop every 10 seconds the message is changing and it's just it could be art information it could be the Chiefs game and cookie mute a music Fair going on it's just a host of information that we're constantly publishing we're publishing it on a daily basis if it if it's the same stuff day after day it's boring it's old and no one will use so you know we're encouraging we actually have a Hall Pass we after a city we open up the local desk and we actually have an office at the pink bake space and we're publishing from there so you know when we come to other cities we can we do the same thing so just to give you a little plate down and white here a little demonstration of what happened so we're up we're obviously encouraging people to touch it because still the notion of interactivity is relatively new so we want to give people an idea so if someone touches it and you're given a choice do you want to learn more about what the poster is that's on the screen at the current time or do you want to go a little deeper into what's going on here in Kansas City so I touch that and now we have and this really these are series of apps and this is a collaborative effort with the city we said sit down with the city and say you know what's important for you to communicate out to your public so we have Casey now attractions Casey gov parks this is pretty cool the bike sharing program so now you can find out if the bike rack is
    • two blocks away and you don't want to
    walk there to find out there's nothing available so we did a location that tells you there are two bikes present I broke a member person so we embed the sports community the music community what's fun is we're getting calls all the time from different parts of the community having the arts they want to put up something next week so you know it's literally an hour we get the information we post it and it's up so obviously the sports community there's a lot to publish and the interest is high so if you go actually this was a group because there's electric electric car week this was Kansas City power light they came to us and said can we post the message for a week and I think it was over a power and light right up there 14th Street and we put it up and they got their their money's worth so if you go back here obviously around the streetcar it was a big deal so we put routers into the streetcar and we have real-time tracking and what I'll get into in a minute is we take everything that you see here and we put it on to the mobile app and that parts and you can all k city post is the app so simple so if you can see the type of content that we're putting out on a regular basis so and we'd have the real you see then we have puppies just we have video capabilities so the South give you all the introductory information about the street what's that now what's important about the video as well and the sound phase - we're going to put 9-1-1 touch so if the police department has the ability to receive a video message you could have a 2-way this is your camera you could have a two-way video pause which obviously is hopefully it's not used very often but in times of trouble it's great to have it around also at night time to see the light coming from these kiosks is a nice safe - an extra safety these are your speakers who have microphone jack fully eighty-eight compliant we're going to be implementing a call center to the sign up here we've been around for seven years so we've thought through all this to make this thing work another cool feature is if your town has a lot of visitors coming here we implemented eight eight languages and go up to 150 languages and anyone have a favorite language so everything in everything just converts right away and it's all sprawled just like you're right wayfinding we're upgrading our wayfinding system so it's going to be hyperlocal it's going to give you all the information you have Banton's and you want to go to the power light district and it will take you from point A to point B and it'll be a nice wave obviously everything we're doing is hyper local so the information we're putting in you station may be slightly different than some of the information you're getting at the River Market so we started here in Kansas City with 25 interactive screens 13 up and down the streetcar line most of which are two-sided there so one sided actually in total we have 13 double-sided and 12 singles and then what we do also is Bob had a request that some of the districts have street furniture that's black so we powder-coated the units and we have a bunch of chaos that are black powdercoat so we we obviously work with the community has got to look right for you small business we have we believe that towns in the cities that we're going into small business is critically important I grew up the lifelines of the city so we give small business owners the tools to be able to go online and type the name I think the name of their establishment a headline which could be simply a for your coffee shop you know half-price latte from 7:00 in the morning till 9:00 in the morning so real-time information headline and a visual it's as simple as what you do on your phone so we give a tutorial to the small business offer they can put put the message out and and choose where they want the message to go what time of day and for how long so it's a great tool for them it's it's accessible and it's affordable to that community so and that same system or with police force and the government they can override the system there's trouble in the commute you know whether there's a shooting if it's weather-related they can push messaging out for one screen different message to another string questions so far sure but he didn't tell you is how Mike made those maybe the most popular man in City Hall you should say how many buddy anyway so these little babies here there are a good engagement tool the fact that my good friends over at our office performance management actually have highlighted some of our KC staff meetings on KC gum to show how we're doing as a city is really really really cool but what's more cool is these things pay for themselves so what we did was we bought these machines from Mike and his group and every month I get half of the residuals from all the ads they so this allows me to pay for silly little things like the Metroclick kiosk itself like those sensitive sensors. You can reach metroclick here at NYC you see up on the lights here like the Wi-Fi itself all of our entire smart city infrastructure gets paid for in terms of maintenance because Mike said we'll share the revenue with you what a nice and hope one of these guys but oh by the way because of that what we're able to do is sell that to my city manager you guys are gonna hear tomorrow about what this whole partnership thing is all about everything you saw up and down the street car today somewhere about 20 million dollars worth of kiss between the Wi-Fi APs the sensitive sensors the software behind it the analysis system the crisscross yet his guys put together think big and they're sort of planning behind how this strategically with all worked out integration into phase two all that stuff about twenty million dollars worth of kid cities built for this somewhere between one point seven and one point nine million dollars depending on how you cut the map the reason for that big differential is cisco makes money on this deal sprint makes money on this deal might make that was allowed to make multiple flights to and from his new favorite city kansas city from his old favorite city where some team from new york wearing different colored pinstripes in my beloved coupler where they play on occasion oh by the way torch Brett did beat him with that homerun just saying [Music] it is an honest to heavens legit partnership where these guys succeed what we get out of the touch kiosk ability to actually transform what was a cool city into a smart city i've got data now and data systems where i can actually predict where the next problem is going to be i am so totally not interested in solving a crisis that's already occurred but i'm trying to work toward is solving the crisis that's going to occur next week or in three hours from now well I am a company if we have to have another World Series rally I would like to know which of these tops I need to send the buses to because I've got a sensitive system that can count the bodies and tell me when they're coming I would really really really like to have a dedicated set of the broadband which tells me how they're going to get there and gets that data to me when y'all look on your cell phone that says KC IOT yeah that's the ten percent that we as a city just use exclusively and when you were looking at all the pictures of sensitive guys were using that's the part of the bandwidth they were using to do the I would really like to have faith that all these systems are actually talking to each other that's what Cisco does for me I would really love to be able to know that I can get about a hundred more of these things and I'd like him in oh I don't know about four months from now that's what this guy does for me there were 16 partners in phase one and that was only about 2.25 y'all ruled the whole distance on that streetcar well we're looking at for Phase two is about five times that distance and oh by the way I'm gonna add a little shot spotter to that so Public Safety could actually figure out where the second gun shots gonna come before somebody shoots it because what the police told me was it the first gun shot is bad but the second gun shot is what kills somebody because some clown decides he's gonna make a statement with the first round and if I can get a policeman to that location before the second round is fired I've just prevented a tragedy and that's the air between a smart city and a cool city and we really really want to be smart we really liked any of a competition because this whole struts the detailing thing we just went through everybody who was on this streetcar line they were all part of that and the idea that all of us are all competing toward the same goal means that guys like this are working overtime to be cooler than each other and when they're competing we all win so it's all cool we're having fun and I don't want us to get rained on so I'm gonna turn back over to our next romantic scene since I saw imporantly took over.
