Smart Cities – Infrastructure and Transport of the Future

Smart Cities – Infrastructure and Transport of the Future

The world is changing fast. Cities are growing
and urban population is rising. The need for transport of people
and goods are increasing, but so is congestion, air pollution,
road accidents and climate change. We need more mobility,
but we have to do it in a smarter way. This is our scenario for the future. Outside the city,
vehicles and autonomous trailers are operating
within safe and confined areas. Electric vehicles are charged
while goods are loaded. A driver enters to lead the connected
convoy on to the public roads, where dedicated bus lanes
should be used, if possible. Autonomous connected trailers create
safe, modular, flexible vehicle convoys adapting to transportation needs. Adjusting to schedule updates
the flexible convoy, switching goods along the way –
a mobile consolidation center. The transport system is enabled
through an integrated cloud platform, connecting vehicles, people,
infrastructure and logistic partners. In the city, the sensors
of the autonomous refuse truck detect all movements
in the vicinity of the environment and reacts automatically
to any potential incidents, making sure citizens are safe and
preventing accidents before happening. Bus platooning improves efficiency and
capacity in city public transportation. With silent, emission free buses,
we can bring public transport closer to people
and even drive inside of buildings. This opens up completely new
opportunities for city planning. Fast and efficient ways of charging
from the electric grid at the end terminal
in just a few minutes. How do we build the cities
and the infrastructure of tomorrow in a more sustainable way? The future is electric –
zero emission and low noise gives the electric compact excavator
access to environmental city zones. Imagine a silent
and emission free city. Imagine a cleaner, safer
and more resource efficient world without compromising
our everyday life and health. The future is now and we are ready.

  1. Hi Everyone,

    A few passionate friends and I started a blog on smart cities some weeks ago. We try to write and share articles a couple times per week.

    It would be greatly appreciated if you could have look, and maybe give us feedback !

    Thanks !

  2. This is great an all, but who will keep the busses clean when people are peeing and defecating in them every 2 hours?

  3. Good luck in getting our government officials onboard with this.. they don't even want to spend money on fixing POTHOLES much less on any type of green initiative. No.. no.. let's bail out corporations and antiquated systems and fund wars and border wars.

  4. Sometimes the best advice is to simply quit… in this scenario, I recommending not simply quitting, delete this video, the channel and find a real job

  5. Why will there be a need for public transport? We are always being told that robots will do most work, so people will not be travelling into the cities so much – only small numbers will need to get to work. We are told online shopping is killing off shops, so people won't need to travel to either city centres or out of town centres. We are told that cities will have huge skyscraper residences containing all the facilities people need. Transportation will be by omnidirectional pods that will also take people to nearby towers via sky bridges. The roads will be almost empty except for delivery vehicles, emergency vehicles and a small public transportation system for the few with jobs who cannot work at home.

  7. Global Smart Transportation Market is accounted for $73.01 billion in 2017 and expected to grow at a CAGR of 25.8% to reach $222.12 billion by 2024 during the forecast period 2018-2024.
