Infrastructures and intelligent supply systems for the City of the Future
Urbanisation is currently a global development trend, and it must be assumed that this trend will continue in the future. This makes it all the more important to ensure today, for the purposes of intergenerational fairness, that our descendants can lead stable and prosperous lives in an intact environment. The associated infrastructures and supply systems should be developed in line with the goals of sustainable settlement development.
The use of existing substances, the preservation of the existing environmental and supply quality, and a focus on renewal, while taking the foreseeable challenges of the future (climate change, energy/resource efficiency, demographic change, the financial situation of communities, investment backlog) into consideration and using the new technological working arrangements and control options (Internet of Things and Services, cyber-physical systems, sensor technology and actuator technology, City OS), should have priority over expansion and capacity building.
