There is a great dynamic in cities as they continue to explore the use of data to enhance urban services within and across
urban infrastructure systems.
Digitalization allows us to jointly pioneer the future of mobility to bring smart infrastructure to life, and to shape tomorrow’s decentralized energy solutions.
This is what Smart Cities are all about.
City of Nuremberg reduces air pollution
The City of Nuremberg has been working for years to reduce air pollution and emissions of greenhouse gases. Local traffic, however, made it difficult to consistently meet WHO air quality recommendations, especially for nitrogen dioxide.
The city has implemented an IoT-enabled system that collects air quality data from sensors around the city. Using historic data on air pollution, weather, and traffic patterns, the system forecasts air quality by using neuronal networks. The City Air Management tool simulates the impact of corrective actions, such as mandating low-emission zones, speed limits, or reduced prices for public transportation.
By simulating the five day’s impact of the selected preventive action on air quality, the city is empowered to evaluate measures and to remain proactive in the battle for better air in cities.
