Augmented reality and digital capabilities of the Russian capital at the Smart City stand

At the stand of the city portal and the Government of Moscow visitors can view a giant interactive panel with the possibility of contactless control. It provides an opportunity to understand what the "smart" city already looks like today. The presentation covers the Moscow e-school (MESH), through which parents can check the grades and attendance of schoolchildren from their mobile devices. Here you can learn about the possibilities of the Single Medical Information and Analytical System (EMIAS). Citizens use this platform to arrange appointments with a doctor online, and doctors use it to create electronic medical records, look at their patient's medical history and write out electronic prescriptions.

At the Smart City stand it is also possible to view Moscow’s capabilities through the prism of augmented reality. Here urban interchanges and a subway map come to life, and a special application in panoramic mode shows how city streets have changed over the last hundred years.

A new stage in the development of telemedicine and the development of 5G cellular networks

The stand of the Megafon operator company presents the possibilities of modern telemedicine - an ultrasound device that can be remotely controlled from anywhere in the world. The mechanical "hand" was developed jointly with the Chinese company Huawei. According to experts, such devices can be useful for small settlements where there is a shortage of qualified medical personnel. The device operates on the basis of a new generation 5G cellular network. It is planned that the widespread roll-out of high-speed data transmission technology will occur in Russia by 2020.

Feel like a doctor, learn about the opportunities provided to citizens of different ages on an interactive map, and read a book about the history of Moscow

A medical simulator from the simulator center of the Botkin Hospital has been installed at the exhibition space of the Social Development stand. With its help anyone can perform a simple operation, for example, to take hold of a blood vessel and apply a clip. The "operation" is carried out using a special device, and to add to the realism stereo glasses are used, creating a three-dimensional effect. Such simulators are designed for both those in training and experts and are used to teach students of the Russian capital’s medical universities. In addition, you can also take a tour of an operating room with the help of virtual reality glasses.

The Department of Labor and Social Protection of the Population has prepared a large interactive map of Moscow. It shows the number of social facilities, monuments of architecture, parks and theaters in the city.
