New challenges for cities and communities

Increased traffic volume in the city

The globally increasing number of city dwellers, increasing globalization, climate change, and technological advances are having an impact on urban living space.

More intensive land use, greater volumes of traffic, bottlenecks in supply and disposal, as well as higher levels of air and noise pollution are presenting cities with new challenges.

Designing intelligent urban living spaces

Data in the city  

Data plays a central role in the smart city

Innovative, highly integrated, and networked information and communication technology supports the implementation of modern smart city concepts.

The combination of technology, intelligent systems, and processes enables the modernization of existing city concepts. The evaluation of urban data plays a central role here. For example, traffic and environmental data provide the basis for intelligent traffic management and the sustainable use of resources. Urban data platforms provide city dwellers with relevant data and create added value.
