To date, Wuxi's IoT industry output has reached 1150 billion yuan ($21.8 billion) with nearly 2,000 IoT companies producing applications which bring benefit to people's daily life in Wuxi.
There are nearly 1500 electronic signboards in Wuxi, displaying different kinds of information related to residents' daily life, such as community notices, weather conditions, air quality, bus arrival times, vegetable prices and available taxis. According to the signboards provider Jiangsu Derhino Intelligent Technology Co, "The information shown on the 105-inch electronic signboards is selected through an IoT platform and is frequently updated."
At Powerlong Urban Square in the Wuxi National Hi-tech District (Xinwu District), drivers park their cars without parking passes and only need to give a license plate number when paying fees. Using IoT technology for automatic fare collection and parking guidance, this intelligent system has increased parking efficiency by 70 percent.
IoT is also applicable to medical treatments and agriculture. "Zhangzhongbao" of Wuxi Shiling Tech provides accurate medicine information, increasing the efficiency of medical workers. US-based BayNexus' R&D and production base in the Asia-Pacific region, specialize in RFID development and smart healthcare application services.
As of 2015, there have been 1,171 IoT companies in Wuxi with more than 1150,000 employees, generating a total output value of 168.8 billion yuan. Wuxi has also undertaken over 2,000 provincial IoT R&D projects and applied for nearly 5,000 IoT patents.
