CARS are irrational

The cities are the focus of consumption that destroys the environment. A city of 1 million inhabitants eats resources within 200 kilometers of living nature. Then, as the model of urban functions will be the environmental impact, efficient energy consumption and pollution levels.

The cities are the focus of consumption that destroys the environment. A city of 1 million inhabitants eats resources within 200 kilometers of living nature. Then, as the model of urban functions will be the environmental impact, efficient energy consumption and pollution levels.

The cars are totally irrational useful for the average energy saving concept. Cities should evolve into integrated systems of urban public transport, replacing almost all individual vehicles. Air trains supported by concrete frames, capable of rotating at 25 meters, could walk the streets every 10 blocks and become a highly efficient system. Besides this train could be promoted through electric or hydrogen, which would pollute the environment. Taking this step is a priority. The car is a total waste of resources and should be replaced. We have the technology to do so. The political will is missing. And avoid known negotiated. End the era of the automobile is not the end of the world but the beginning of the solution to the great problem of CO2 pollution.

The Domus project involves the installation of Servers in buildings and the laying of optical fiber to the functional units. This allows high digitization of all vital functions of the joint venturers. It is complemented by the Lasersat Projects involving the installation of antennas on the roof Laser buildings forming a virtual bubble of data interconnectivity, conectadada directly with satellites, with the ability to function together as a receiving satellite dish large size. Complementing this technology will be available before 2025 devices Human-x Technologies, micro PC units integrating the BCI, google digital glass and synthetic telepathy, enabling telecontrol with mental commands all devices in the home, in transportation and in the job.

The term “smart city” is the translation and adaptation of the English term “smart city.” It is an emerging concept, and therefore their meanings in Spanish and other languages, and even in the English language itself, are subject to constant revision. It is also a current term, which is being used as a marketing concept (marketing) in business, in relation to development policy, and with regard to various specialties and themes.

The “city smart” sometimes also called “efficient city” or “city super-efficient”, refers to a type of urban development based on sustainability2 that is able to respond adequately to the basic needs of institutions, businesses, and The citizens themselves both economically and in the operational, social and ambientales.3 A city or urban complex may be described as intelligent as far aspects that investments made in human capital (continuing education, initial education, secondary and higher education, adult education …), social aspects, 1 in energy infrastructure (electricity, gas), communication technologies (electronic, Internet) and transport infrastructure, contemplate and promote a high quality of life, development economic and environmental durable and sustainable, participatory governance, prudent and thoughtful management of natural resources, and a good use of time of citizens.

Modern cities, based on efficient and durable infrastructure of water, electricity, telecommunications, gas, transport, emergency services and security, public facilities, intelligent office buildings and residences, etc., should aim at improving the comfort of citizens being increasingly effective and provide new quality services, while respecting the maximum environmental aspects and wise use of nonrenewable natural resources ..

Today, the concept of city (more) intelligent or space (more) intelligent, it is widely used in marketing by experts in commercial companies and in urban areas, although in many cases the emphasis on one aspect, which in largely betrays the concept that seeks to develop, which has an important effect holistic and integral.En component, a city or a territory considered to be intelligent is mainly manifested by its multidimensional and multifaceted in terms of actors, in terms of domains key (transport, energy, education, health, waste, security, economy …), and development and use of technologies. Naturally, the main private sector players involved in a project like the analyzed city, territory, district or intelligent building, industrial and business are key, such as energy, water, transport, and services sectors … and business leaders telecommunications and public infrastructure, editors, logicales providers of management support, as well as management and consulting.

Technology has historically shaped the life of cities. The telegraph, power grids, trains. The most influential so far in his transformation is the self, the thirties become a symbol of personal freedom around which society is organized. Now, new information technologies are producing another big change: the so-called smart cities promise to optimize the air conditioning of buildings, increase the relationship with citizens, improve traffic management and, in general, more efficiently. How is life in these cities? What role its inhabitants?

The application of technology in the cities has become a topic of fashion and urban thinkers throw caution messages. “We are unleashing powers capable of measuring the world at a very high level of detail. And it is increasingly clear that no one really knows how we will manage these powers, “says Anthony Townsend, Professor of Urban Planning at the University of New York and author of Smart Cities: Big Data, Civic Hackers, and the Quest for a New Utopia . “The boom of smart cities is that the world is urbanizing faster than ever and at the same time, the Internet is already everywhere. The information technology help us find increasingly creative solutions. How to manage waste, traffic? How to control the streets? “He added in a telephone interview Townsend, who believes that has not devoted enough time to analyze the impact of these alleged advantages.

In the new urban technological underworld, progress is sometimes invisible. The people are not always aware of where the cameras are, what being recorded or if they are equipped with algorithms capable of identifying faces. In the control center of the City of Rio de Janeiro, a giant wall screens in real time monitors video streams coming from underground stations and major intersections. Information on weather, accidents, incidents, criminal acts. Townsend notes that technological potential is a double-edged sword and we must ensure that it is transparent systems.

The concept of intelligent city seems to have originated within companies rather than a political party, group or individual

The market for smart cities is also a billionaire, leading some to think that mainly is a business. The urban designer Adam Greenfield believes, in his book Against the Smart City, “the concept of intelligent city seems to have originated within companies rather than a political, group or individual game recognized for his contributions to the theory or practice of urban planning “.

The potential of the technology is huge metropolis. Sensors that turn on and off the lights in a building passage of people automatically; control how often a dumpster is full, for the truck to pick pass only when necessary, and locating free parking spaces. Two of the most extreme examples are Masdar, in Abu Dhabi -created of nowhere on the basis of technology: it is supplied by solar energy and aims to be fully self-sufficient – and Songdo in South Korea, a new city that used software and sensors to optimize their functions.

A prominent Spanish case is Vitoria, which was recognized by the European Green Capital in 2012 thanks, among others, an irrigation system that takes into account if it has rained and quickly detects faults to prevent water loss; or an application that collects geo comments and suggestions of the people and allows, according to its promoters, a greater response from City Hall. In Madrid, among other things, it has deployed a system that allows citizens to immediately communicate problems on the roads, like fallen trees, damaged and broken pavement in a park swing. “It’s about making life easier warning to citizens, for example, that a jam in a street to look for an alternative,” says Olga White, head of consulting for IBM smart cities in Spain. Other leading companies are Cisco, Microsoft and Siemens.

The possibility of efficient and rapid management is clearly a breakthrough. But the British developer Dan Hill believes that what the world needs is a new vision of how the institutions of the traditional city must adapt to a society increasingly contectada. For it remains as relevant as 50 years ago the dictum of the architect Cedric Price: “Technology is the answer, but what was the question? ‘.

“Cities do not just have to be smart, but ecological and democratic” says the architect-planner Jon Aguirre Such, partner office Transversal urban innovation landscape. “You have to balance the interests of businesses, local authorities and the public to get a comprehensive perspective,” he says. His studio has designed the Zaragoza Urban Open Laboratory, from which you have generated solutions for energy efficiency, sustainable mobility and local commerce. Similar initiatives are being launched in major cities worldwide.

In the future, the most visionary dream technophiles and cities without drivers (electric cars that go alone) groups that circulate over the traffic, to make it more fluid. Science fiction?

Infrastructure. Operations. People.

What makes a city? The answer is clearly the set of three. A city is a system of interconnected systems. A dynamic work in progress, with progress motto. The aim of these three pillars is to achieve a smarter across town.

The smartest cities support sustainable economic growth and prosperity for its citizens. Its leaders have the necessary tools to analyze the data that will enable them to make better decisions, anticipate problems to resolve them proactively and coordinate resources to act efficiently tools.

As demands grow and budgets are adjusted, smarter solutions that serve the city are needed globally. By collecting and analyzing large amounts of data every second, tools such as IBM Intelligent Operations Center (US) coordinate and share data in a single view, creating an overall picture of those responsible for supporting the city generates more intelligent.
