Data based decisions

Lisbon is fashionable. No doubt about that. To live in and to visit.

All city infrastructures are being challenged on a daily basis.  The mobility sector, in particular, puts pressure on air quality, due to permanent mobility modes (cars and fuel-powered buses and an airport located very close to the city center) as well as to cruise ships, docking daily and aggravating the city's emissions problem.


The time to act and ensure quality of life for locals and tourists is here and now.


Real-time data collection and data analysis are powerful aids to make smart decisions, help connect points, establish correlations, and ensure that past failures are not repeated.   This makes Lisbon surely a more inclusive, more resilient and more flexible city able to offer a good quality of life to its residents and visitors.


Lisbon Digital City

Siemens works with cities every day around the world with challenges like the ones in Lisbon and, with the adoption of digital technology, the company can help Lisbon and other cities in Portugal to become a smart ecosystem, to boost the city development and to improve quality of life for those who are part of it.


In the mobility, water and energy supply sectors and namely by digitalizing them, we can help the city with algorithms that allow to know in real time what challenges the city is facing or anticipate the challenges of the future.


  • Anticipating events by analyzing patterns 
  • Route/last mile planning (from transport hubs to final destination)
  • Analysis of air quality and forecast of air conditions


Digitalization makes it possible to anticipate scenarios and take action before infrastructures reach their critical point, thereby avoiding impacts on the quality of life of the people or on the attractiveness of Lisbon as one of the best locations in the world to live, work or simply enjoy.
