The integration of flexible take-off and landing infrastructure in megacities is crucial for the success of Urban Air Mobility (UAM) and for air taxi operations. In order to advance the development of this infrastructure, they have been working with Skyports, a British vertiport developer and operator, since 2019. They developed the VoloPort, which we will show for the first time publicly in Singapore.
This dataset contains current tree data for the City of Perth and contains information regarding the Botanical name, Common Name and Family. Data is compiled from field capture from a parks team. This is not a complete comprehensive inventory of all trees as trees in the private realm are excluded. Some errors and/or duplicate data may exist.
As part of the NATURVATION project, Utrecht has been examining nature-based solutions projects in the city. The Roerplein Pocket Park is one of our best examples of a successful citizen-led intervention, and began as an initiative by a local social entrepreneur to turn a paved public square into a park. The small park was built within a highly paved neighborhood with little green space, and is managed by local citizens with the support of the municipality.
Siemens and Microsoft are working together with customers to address core urban challenges and developing MindSphere City Graph - an Open Urban Platform, which supports digital models of urban design, providing rich context to enable the new generation of city applications.
The Smart Urban Co-Innovation Lab, Southeast Asia’s first industry-led lab for smart cities solutions development, initiated by CapitaLand and supported by the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) and Enterprise Singapore (ESG), is officially opened.
Tengah will be Singapore’s first smart and sustainable town, with green features and smart technologies.
Giant solar-powered air conditioners, vacuum garbage collection, subterranean roads for electric vehicles, urban farms and green architecture. Put them all together and you have Tengah, Singapore’s most ambitious project yet to build the city of the future.
Scotland's first ever Low Emission Zone (LEZ) came into effect in Glasgow city centre on 31 December 2018.
A Low Emission Zone is an area where a person may not drive a vehicle which does not meet a specified emission standard. LEZs are intended to reduce pollution levels and improve air quality in areas where standards are not being met.
Delve was created to help developers, architects and planners identify the optimal design plans for an urban project.
CSCC collects data that can be analyzed to determine opportunities to support the community’s voiced concerns and improved quality of life. They are addressing issues like pedestrian safety, traffic flow, air quality, and near hits. Working with Oak Ridge National Lab, they have begun to develop a “digital twin” model that uses collected data to run real-life simulations. With this approach, they are able to test theories regarding particular interventions to see how those changes would likely play out on the streets.
The city of Vienna strongly supports the establishment of green walls. The green wall on the side of the MA48 office building was built in 2010 and has been under constant monitoring ever since. The city’s first green wall system is 450 m2 in size and consists of more than 3,000 m of lined stainless steel planting containers. The properties of the green wall are monitored with various sensors and its irrigation is provided by an automatic irrigation system. The summer cooling effect of the green wall is equivalent to the operation of 80 air conditioners of 3000 W each, 8 hours a day.
