Driving development of smart city clusters through integrated mobilityChina's urbanization rate hit 57.35% in 2016. Development plans of the Pearl River Delta urban cluster, the Yangtze River Delta urban cluster, and coordinated development between Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei have been launched in succession. Smart city clusters, built on intelligent infrastructure, are gradually becoming a powerful engine and important vehicle of sustainable urbanization. With city clusters emerging one after another, urban development is becoming more balanced and sustainable with interlinked and connected cities sharing resources efficiently. City cluster development brings a wealth of possibilities but also more challenges. For example, as urban clusters develop, the constant increase in the mobility of resources - such as people and goods - among regions places higher and higher demands on the transportation network. The concept of "integrated mobility" therefore emerged to provide a safe, stable, and efficient foundation for economic development.
Multinational enterprises like Siemens participate in the development of smart city clusters by tapping into their experience and taking into consideration the situation in China. For example, through collecting and analyzing mass traffic data, they can come up with more reasonable infrastructure development plans helping people to travel more efficiently.Professor Zheng Xinye, Deputy Dean of the School of Economics of Renmin University of China
How to achieve "mass but orderly" transit?As China's long-term, reliable partner in mobility, Siemens is committed to developing green and sustainable integrated solutions. Through advanced digitalization technologies, the company converts disorganized transport systems into an integrated intelligent transport network in an organic way. It can anticipate faults, minimize accidents, provide maximum throughput and highest availability, and ensure efficient urban mobility and interurban mobility.
Digitalization is the brain of smart mobilityDigitalization is the key for more convenient travel. With long experience in digitalization and automation technology, Siemens is able to guarantee that passengers travel efficiently and punctually, thanks to its mobility solutions including metro signaling systems, Unattended Train Operation (UTO) and Digital Services . Digitalization and powerful software solutions also optimize throughput and increase availability.
