Der Stromverbrauch steigt weltweit. Um eine lückenlose Versorgung mit erneuerbaren Energien sicherzustellen, braucht es intelligente Netze.
Mithilfe der Digitalisierung wollen Unternehmen langfristig nachhaltiger wirtschaften. Neben den ökonomischen Vorteilen setzen sich immer mehr Branchen auch die ökologische Nachhaltigkeit zum Ziel.
Digital transformation of the transport industry is well underway. And one of the ways that IoT technologies and big data analytics can come together is to provide smart parking solutions.
Urbanization is accelerating across the globe, with an increasing number of people living and working in cities. In an effort to match this trend, governments in the Middle East have adopted various policies ranging from greenfield developments touted as future cities (such as NEOM in Saudi Arabia), to accelerating urban digital transformation (Doha), and incorporating a 'happiness' oriented mindset (Dubai). Infrastructure investments lie at the heart of all such efforts, but they are capital-intensive and time-consuming. Therefore, future plans need to accommodate for much longer-term growth, addressing the huge volume of users as well as their evolving requirements.
These shifts have significant implications for the evolution of Smart Cities towards Cognitive Cities and the future of national digital transformation. This article highlights eight significant forces that will shape the future of urban living.
With digital transformations well underway globally and across all industries - driven by ICT - the transportation industry in particular will witness explosive development over the next few years, having reached a turning point that will eventually define the overall success of its transformation.
Today, intelligentization is a recurring topic during discussions of technological development. Almost everything — from a humble street lamp to an entire city — is now seemingly empowered with intelligence.
We are in the midst of answering one of the most common questions I get asked — what makes a Smart City a success.
The concept of the Smart City has been discussed for more than a decade now, and both the promises and expectations have been high. Around the world thousands of cities – and their citizens – have been transforming the way that they work, with varying degrees of success. But what makes some cities successful and other cities not? Why are smart city projects so difficult to realize?
Cities are complex ecosystems that are evolving fast and — like citizens — becoming increasingly digital. By 2025, the total number of global internet users is expected to reach 6.2 billion; the total number of connected devices is expected to surpass 100 billion by the same year.
