A new cloud-based app which supports Expo 2020 Dubai in becoming a blueprint for future smart cities is being developed by Siemens, and has already connected part of the site’s infrastructure to the Internet of Things.
The app is designed to digitally optimize Expo 2020 Dubai, enhancing the visitor experience and reducing energy and water use. Initially operating across two domains – environmental monitoring and irrigation – the app will collect, monitor, correlate and analyze data from the site, and visualize it to allow real-time monitoring and control of infrastructure from static and mobile devices. The new app will grow with the Expo 2020 Dubai site, incorporating the ability to make use of machine learning and artificial intelligence and demonstrating the potential to connect an entire city to the Internet of Things with MindSphere. The Expo is expected to attract 25 million visits over six months, and the Siemens solutions will connect, monitor and control more than 130 buildings, supporting Expo 2020 Dubai’s targets for energy efficiency, visitor comfort, safety and security.
