Expo 2020 Dubai
Creating a blueprint for future smart cities
MindSphere and Expo 2020 Dubai
A new cloud-based app which will support 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 during the six-month event. 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.
Siemens is the Infrastructure Digitalization Partner of Expo 2020 Dubai, and is implementing one of the world’s largest installations of its digital building technologies at the site. The Expo is expected to attract 25 million visitors over six months, and the Siemens solutions will connect, monitor and control more than 130 buildings using MindSphere, supporting Expo 2020 Dubai’s targets for energy efficiency, visitor comfort, safety and security.
