Optimum coordination of urban flows with smart software
The world is rapidly urbanising. Today about 1.5 billion people live in the 600 biggest cities in the world. It is expected that by 2030 almost 70% of the world population will be living in a big city. This situation comes with huge challenges in the area of food, water, energy, mobility, waste and environment. Challenges that call for smarter cities. Cities in which people, authorities, companies, machines and even products are connected to one another, exchanging information and interacting in real time. Cities in which the internet of things, big data and robotisation are not just buzz words, but are commonplace in practice.
ICT Group meets these challenges head on. Using smart software solutions, we enable fast, affordable and safe connections within and between infrastructural, logistical and distribution networks. Connections that ensure that the right information is available at the right place and at the right time for citizens, companies and managers, so all urban flows are coordinated optimally, whether we are talking about drinking water supply, waste processing, building climatisation, solar energy or public transport. In this way ICT contributes to the sustainability, efficiency and smartness that heavily populated areas need to face the challenges of tomorrow.
