New urban visions and technologies to transform cities into humanized, sustainable, equitable and resilient environments
NEW YORK, November 11, 2021 / PRNewswire / – While there is little doubt that global urbanization will continue unabated, it is equally clear that current concepts of urban life and infrastructure are neither sustainable nor scalable from the perspective of environmental impact, resilience, cost and humanized life. The status quo of polluted, dangerous and congested cities is starting to change. According to a global technology watch firm ABI research, investments in urban infrastructure aimed at implementing new visions for cities will reach US $ 375 billion by 2030, as cities invest in brownfield and new construction projects.
“The very concept of the city will change profoundly and structurally”, affirms Dominique goodness, vice president of end markets and verticals at ABI Research. In 2021 eye-catching urban visions such as The Line and Telosa were announced, offering fundamentally new infrastructure models for city living based on green, pedestrianized, and 20-minute neighborhoods served by on-demand mobility robots. , retail, healthcare and delivery. , while prohibiting the traditional layers of transport, energy and utilities at underground levels. âWhile many of these new visions of the city never see the light of day, they offer a glimpse of a more humanized, sustainable and resilient urban future, much of which will be achieved by gradually renovating and / or modernizing infrastructure. existing urban areas in the coming decades, âsays Bonte.
There are many drivers of urban innovation, but both the digitization of lifestyles, accelerated by Covid-19, and the increasingly pressing need to fight climate change are powerful drivers of metropolitan transformation. Other agents of change include the call for more equity and inclusion, scalable economic development and more affordable lifestyles.
While the most visible aspects of this urban revolution relate to physical assets, ranging from more distributed urban footprints to green infrastructure, adaptable urban spaces and modular roads and buildings, invisible digital layers and associated processes are equally important. . They are provided by urban innovators such as Alphabet’s Sidewalk Labs and Dassault SystÃ¨mes who develop and integrate connected sensors, software management platforms, digital twins, blockchain, electrification and process automation. These transformative solutions enable preventive and remote maintenance practices, automated emergency interventions and traffic management, and will ultimately enable the autonomous city of the future to be created.
