A world where all the city's infrastructure is connected through advanced information and communication technologies (ICT), such as Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
What is smart city
It is a futuristic high-tech city that connects all the infrastructure of the city by using advanced information and communication technology (ICT). A smart city project utilizes ICT technology to solve traffic problems, environmental problems, housing problems, facility inefficiencies, etc. that are caused today and provides its inhabitants a more enjoyable urban experience.
Smart city real-life case studies
'Smart Streetlight' in Copenhagen, Denmark
The city of Copenhagen has started a project to install outdoor LED lights in the Albetzun region since September 2014. It is expected that energy efficiency will be maximized by remotely managing the street lamps connected to the area via WiFi and adjusting the brightness of the lights themselves.
The City of Barcelona planted a vehicle detection sensor in the parking lot and connected it wirelessly with the smart street lamps installed around it. When the car parked, the smart streetlight responded to the parking problem by sending the information "parked" to the data center and sharing it in real time.
The international city of Songdo has been promoting the construction of U-City since 2003. The U City Center provides services such as transportation, method, disaster prevention, environment, facility management, etc. Therefore, before the notification is made, the center can identify the situation and actively deal with it.
Autodesk BIM solution for smart city implementation
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a technology that models 2D information in 3D in all processes related to construction and architecture, and design and construction management in virtual space. Since detailed parameters can be checked and corrected early and actual construction is carried out, errors and accidents can be eliminated in the construction site in advance.
Smart city software
BIM software to plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure
What is the transportation system of the future city in 2050?
In 2050, 70% of the world's population will live in cities, and the city's transportation system is expected to undergo significant changes. Take a look at the future of transportation systems, such as unmanned parking lots, drones, electric car charging stations, and on-demand public transportation services.
