BEIJING -- Wisdon, a Chinese startup that uses artificial intelligence and Internet of Things technology to make city infrastructure "smarter," has automated water, electricity and gas meters since it was founded in 2017.

Meter-reading has traditionally been done one meter at a time, resulting in frequent errors. It is also labor and time intensive, which raises costs. Existing smart meters take time to deploy and have limited continuous operation time.
