“Digital transformation affects all sectors of the economy and everyday life, work and communication. For the time being, however, not all Latvian companies are fully exploiting their digital potential. Therefore, the contribution of the RIGA COMM team to the development of business technologies and innovations in Latvia for 10 years is especially commendable. I invite both entrepreneurs and heads of state institutions and industry professionals to attend this large-scale exhibition and conferences in order to further promote modernization and work efficiency in their companies and institutions,” urges Jānis Endziņš, Chairman of the Board of the Latvian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI).

This will also be the place to learn about the latest innovations developed by labs, scientific institutes, hackathons and developer communities.
The two-day event will present seven conferences. RIGA COMM 2021 will also offer the traditional Internet of Things, FinTech, Machine Learning, Smart HRM and Digital Marketing conferences, as well as the Women in Tech Conference focussing on women in the technology industry.

The lifestyle of people and urban mobility are constantly changing: people are moving more during the day, new modes of transport are emerging and environmental issues are becoming increasingly important. Attend the RIGA COMM 2020 Internet of Things Conference on October 15 in Ķīpsala and learn how technological developments will make urban mobility more sustainable, reduce congestion and make your stay in the city more enjoyable.
“In the future, public transport, cycling and different modes of shared transport will play a key role in urban centres, but private transport will keep playing an important role in the suburbs,” points out an urban planner and a chairman of the VEFRESH innovation movement Viesturs Celmiņš.
Smart mobility saves urban resources
one of the most pressing problems for cities that want to be modern and sustainable is the organisation of traffic and people mobility, as the growth of population, inefficient transport systems, congestion and pollution make it difficult to move around in the city, as well as and contribute to citizens’ discontent with their place of residence. Mobile apps, digital services, as well as the use of the Internet of Things, and the integration of sensors in vehicles and urban infrastructure make it possible to use existing transport solutions more effectively and develop new principles for the traffic organisation. As a result, resources are used more wisely, pollution is declining, but the data generated can be used to analyse the movement of people and vehicles to better plan the long-term development of the city.
The triumph of sharing solutions
These days, not only mobility habits are changing, but also new electronic means of transport are emerging for public sharing – tricycles, scooters, bicycles and mopeds. New vehicles can be easily recharged and have lower maintenance costs. Moreover, vehicle ownership is also changing. “Sharing economy solutions are becoming increasingly popular. This allows consumers to devote less time and attention to vehicle maintenance, but vehicles spend less time in standby mode and are used more intensively,” points out Artūrs Burņins, an executive director of Atom Mobility.
Urban planner V.Celmiņš also points out that five years ago, rarely anyone could have predicted that shared solutions would become our everyday life: “Today, smart mobility solutions are already part of the city’s daily life in small and medium-populated areas, so cities should actively consider how to integrate them safely and easily into the urban road network”.
Future challenges for cities and businesses
It cannot be overlooked that the organization of traffic in cities and the vehicles are constantly changing. A scooter can go to recharge itself or go to a place where it will be in greater demand. In 5-10 years, our daily life will be self-driving or autonomous cars. As vehicles become smarter, the number of accidents will be reduced, as accidents caused by human negligence will be prevented.
V.Celmiņš points out that one of the biggest challenges in the future is to improve the experience of urban residents and guests by developing public transport routes, so that they become a real and comparable alternative to private transport. The second challenge is special integrated lanes for environmentally friendly mobility solutions ‒ public transport, bicycles and scooters.
Burņins, on the other hand, mentions the possible regulations of the industry as one of the biggest challenges in the implementation of smart mobility: “Sooner or later the number of different public transport vehicles in the city will reach a critical level and the city administration will have to decide on restrictions. How this issue will be addressed will affect competition and development scenarios in the industry.”
The shared-vehicle industry is fast growing around the world, so it could seem an enticing niche. For entrepreneurs who want to enter this market, however, the rapid development of technology is a big challenge. “Vehicles change every 4-5 months and companies must be able to renew their fleet in line with market changes. Moreover, vehicles should be more durable and able to serve more intensively than if they were used by only one person,” says A.Burņins.

The technology-rich exhibition is complemented by an extensive conference programme. In two days, more than 80 lecturers will speak from four stages in at least six events. In recent years, the RIGA COMM business technology event has been attended by approximately 5000 managers at different levels and professionals from Latvia and the rest of the Baltics.

IoT for time attendance and tools registration solution is developed for construction, manufacturing and services companies, which are looking for new technologies to improve business efficiency. Modern IoT solution allows to organize marketing, to prepare commercial proposals and contracts, to plan and control implementation of the contract. The solution also includes energy and other resources meters, registrators of time attendance of the workers and used tools in the process, controllers of the machinery.
The solution integrates modern IoT infrastructure for time attendance:
- stationary scanners (contactless ID cards, face recognition, fingerprint);
- scanning workers’ RFID cards by facility supervisor NFC phone;
- apps in the workers’ phones scan GPS coordinates and send to the server.
Management of tools is realized with NFC tags and NFC phones for managers, who scan worker contactless ID cards and tools NFC tag. Immediate information about missing employee allows sending an automatic message to the manager who could send another employee, to check who is using the necessary tool, control effectiveness of company recourse usage.
Data from IoT is used in the business process management system AIVA 9001, which generates pass logs, timesheets, tool transfer logs. This data, in turn, continues to be used for other tasks: planning workers and tools for projects, for the production planning and for the execution control
