Smart Neighbourhood

Urban Special

Demo presentation of future ‘smart city’ technologies + Urban talk 'Service vs Surveillance'

Live presentation of current Smart Neighborhood solutions 

14:00-16:00: Live presentation of current smart neighborhood solutions 

What is a ‘smart’ city? There’s not just one definition. To many city leaders — especially within the private sector — the term has become a shorthand for technology that makes cities work better or more efficiently. Smart cities are connected cities, and they work in conjunction with everything from IoT sensors to open data collection and smart streetlights to provide better services and better communication.

For many, it is hard to visualise this technology and how it is going to shape the urban space. Therefore, we run this live presentation in which we will showcase latest cutting-edge solutions.

Participants of this demo presentation will have a unique opportunity to test drive some existing smart neighborhood solutions.

Main themes:
● Smart | Safe | Green Mobility
● Smart street
● On-demand production
