Cities are using housing developments to accelerate DX by developing physical and digital blueprints in master plans. They are taking a place-based approach and are connecting homes to smart mobility (e.g., electric vehicle [EV] charging stations), circular economy (e.g., smart waste management), and smart energy (e.g., microgrids).
Goals and Objectives
The goal is to create an instrumented and connected ecosystem integrating areas such as smart housing, mobility, energy, circular economy, and energy with a view to drive sustainability and livability. The foundations for these smart districts are connectivity and joined data management.
Bluetooth beacons, edge sensors, IoT devices, 5G, smart buildings, cloud computing, data cloud, data analytics, digital twins, and occupant apps
Use Case Summary
Smart housing and sustainable districts integrate technology across the built environment. The data generated can be used by the city and facility managers to monitor the ecosystem and make holistic data-driven decisions to improve economic, social, and environmental outcomes and enhance residents’ experience.
