More than half of the world’s population currently lives in cities, which account for 80 percent of global economic output. And urbanization is progressing steadily: cities are constantly gaining in population, and the number of megacities is rising. New concepts are needed to reconcile people’s demands for mobility and living space. The aim is to design urban space in an innovative way. Smart cities should be networked, efficient, technologically advanced, socially inclusive and sustainable.


From automated traffic management to digital payment models – the future has a lot to offer. LTE mobile communications could connect traffic lights and traffic signs with cars and buses. This is already being tested in Wuxi, China. One sixth of the city area is a test field for autonomous driving.


The cars in tomorrow’s cities will also be able to find the parking space themselves by clicking on the corresponding app. Unmanned drones and urban cable cars could reduce urban traffic chaos. Smartphone traffic lights have already been tested in several cities to protect modern smartphone users from traffic accidents.
