The last half-century has seen massive growth in urban populations. This trend is expected to continue: experts predict 6.5 billion people will live in cities by 2050. And with all cities covering less than 3% of Earth, overpopulation, overpollution and overburdened infrastructure create significant challenges.

make” – @BernardCharles @Dassault3DS #urbanplanning

To address this will require a radical rethinking of our relationship with, and to, urban environments, as well as a shift in mindset within the architecture, engineering and construction industries.

Whether you live in a city or a different type of area, most likely you’ve thought about things you wish you could change. Maybe you think there should be a traffic light in a place that is missing one. Or an easier way to find a parking space, or a new place to live. Technology is now allowing everyday citizens to have this type of influence, and Singapore is leading the way.

Check out this 1-minute video to get a taste of what is happening in a project called Virtual Singapore:

In today’s world, people are constantly generating data. If planners can harness and analyze that data, they can create intelligent cities that better meet the ever-changing needs of citizens.

When completed in 2018, users of Virtual Singapore will be able to map and analyze big data points to simulate scenarios and solutions for everything from disaster evacuation to finding an apartment.

Virtual Singapore will help inform people about where to get the best mobile phone coverage, or allow disabled people to virtually plan an optimal route before venturing out into the streets. Firms can use the information to create better buildings – not just by adding amenities for those living or working in them, but even to architect a specific design to improve air flow throughout the city. Data can also help better identify sun patterns to create more sustainable green spaces. And all of this can be tested (and retested) virtually to help get it just right.

future of #cities | @3DSAEC @CNBCCatalyst

Dassault Systèmes, in conjunction with CNBC Catalyst Content Studio, created an in-depth look at the future of cities, including the need to find equilibrium between government, private business and the public to make these areas successful.

The content – which includes interactive graphics, videos and articles – also explores how 3D printing is being applied to quickly build apartment buildings to meet the burgeoning urban populations.

Sustainable Management and Operations #smartcities”

Rhomberg Group, Zumtobel Group, Bosch Software Innovations, Modcam AB, and Dassault Systèmes collaborated on a landmark smart office building project, in order to introduce more sustainable management of homes, commercial buildings and factories to smart cities of the future.

The pilot project at the LifeCycle Tower (LCT) ONE building in Dornbirn, Austria was presented during the 2016 Bosch ConnectedWorld event in Berlin, Germany.

The modern LCT ONE, owned by Rhomberg Group and equipped with a state-of-the-art Zumtobel lighting solution and smart controls system, is ideal to turn into an innovative connected building targeting the highest standards of sustainability and user comfort.

The LCT ONE project is the latest from 3DEXPERIENCE® City to virtually represent, extend and improve the real world and manage data, processes and people of sustainable cities.

This initiative addresses architecture, infrastructure, planning, resources and inhabitants so that stakeholders can virtually explore a city’s future and its effects on its citizens and the planet.

In this context, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform offers a unified virtual environment for design, simulation and seamless exchange of information between electronics, mechatronics and sensors of each system in smart objects, buildings or vehicles.

Real-time monitoring and analysis of Internet of Things (IoT) components and systems operations can help optimize the next generation of design.

In the LCT ONE project, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides real-time insights into the building’s usage and technical health to optimize energy efficiency and occupancy.

These include energy usage and savings per luminaire, per floor or for the entire building, 3D visualizations of presence data and a heat map that shows occupancy to help optimize usage.

Maintenance insights include luminaire failure notifications, operating hours and the usage history of the lighting system.

Knowledge about preferred lighting scenes helps optimize light settings and, as a result, increase end-user satisfaction.

“The IoT is evolving into the ‘Internet of Experiences,’ where devices are digitally connected to the physical world around them to become part of a living experience shaped by interactions among people, places and objects.

By cooperating with Bosch Software Innovations and other innovators in their respective industries, we can demonstrate how sensor information can be easily harnessed from any big data repository in real time and linked to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform’s realistic representation of a virtual environment.

In this case, the 3DEXPERIENCE building actually becomes the master reference for planning, simulating and operating the estate.

Sustainable cities can become a reality sooner than we think.”

Chief Strategy Officer, Dassault Systèmes

World Cities Summit Hosts Government Leaders & Innovators Solving City Planning Challenges

to Solve #CityPlanning Challenges | @Dassault3DS

Today’s cities consume as much as 75% of natural resources, 70% of global energy consumption and energy-related carbon emissions—and are growing at a rate of 1.3 million people each week.

To grow cities more responsibly, sustainably and satisfyingly for residents, government leaders from around the world are coming together to discuss shared challenges, and potential solutions, at the 2016 World Cities Summit.

The summit, scheduled for July 10-14, 2016, welcomes to Singapore leaders of some of the world’s most forward-thinking cities, as well as academics, AEC professionals and other industry experts to discuss city challenges and share solutions.

Under the theme Livable & Sustainable Cities: Innovative Cities of Opportunity, the event is a platform for discussions of how cities can perform long-term planning in a way that better serves their residents, and improves resilience, through policy, new technology and social innovation.

Several presentations are set to highlight the benefits that can be reaped from using technology to develop smart cities. Smart cities integrate physical, digital and human systems to deliver benefits that include healthier ecosystems, safer cities, and even greater comfort for residents. Other sessions will discuss the ways in which governments can work together with the private sector to apply smart city technology in a way that broadens both financial and social improvements, or how to harness smart sensors to create these smart cities.

3DS_2016_Compass_City_webDassault Systèmes, a proud sponsor of the World Cities Summit, will be highlighting how to create a clone of a city with 3DEXPERIENCE® City. The event provides the perfect forum for highlighting the technology for analyzing data to manage city services and resources.

Singapore has been using this technology to create a digital equivalent, a Virtual Singapore.

The digital city uses real-time feedback that is helping city planners to optimally grow their city to meet the needs of an ever-increasing population.

City planners can also use the data to simulate “what if” scenarios before making real changes to infrastructure.

The 2016 World Cities Summit is set to take place July 10-14 at the Sands Expo & Convention Centre in Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.
