Prepare cities for the future with connected infrastructure solutions

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.

A metropolitan smart city solution: Campus Control Center

Today’s metropolitan cities consist of innumerable, interconnected systems and are continuously operating to enable the transport and mobility of inhabitants, energy, water and waste management, communication and information distribution as well as emergency response – to name a few of them.

 

Campuses – an integral autonomous hub of those modern cities – are challenged by these city-like dynamics in terms of efficient use of building space, energy efficiency and mobility, i.e. public transport, EV and parking.

 

How can our Campus Control Center help overcome these complex challenges? The amounts of heterogenous data a campus generates can now be integrated and operationalized by an overarching control center to accelerate and improve decision making, enriching the campus experience while making them more comfortable and secure.

City of Nuremberg reduces air pollution

The Challenge
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.

 

Our Approach

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.

 

The Impact

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.
