According to French software developer Dassault Systèmes, digital technology can help improve cities and make them more sustainable.
Remi Dornier, vice president of construction, cities and territories at Dassau Systems, is a webinar hosted by the company on Monday to give digital the opportunity to experiment before applying options in the real and virtual worlds. In the physical world, he said that connecting can make the environment “more sustainable and livable”.
Dornier added that digital technology can also help transform thinking and planning to optimize mobility and address the challenges facing cities.
“Technology destroys silos and enables stakeholders to work more closely and access elucidated data to transform our city into a more livable place,” Dornier continued. rice field.
Carlo Ratti, director of MIT Senseable City Lab and founder of Carlo Ratti Associati, said it is important to consider digital infrastructure when investing in infrastructure.
“We need to make sure we build a more sustainable carbon-neutral infrastructure, but let’s do that by thinking about the physical and digital worlds, and their convergence,” Rathi said. Mr. says.
He said digitization through the use of data can help optimize processes, improve operational understanding, and improve public connectivity.
Ratti also described the benefits of digital twin technology, which is a virtual representation of an object, service, or process.
According to him, the technology contains almost all the information in the physical world, but in digital form, to run simulations, better understand the situation, and better design cities. Can be used for.
Meanwhile, Dassault Systèmes, vice president of public sector Jack Bertrand, shared his experience with digital technology during a pandemic.
Beltran talks about when the company was asked to help the French region, which was badly hit by the first wave of the pandemic, by developing a cockpit that would provide authorities with real-time information about their health. I did.
“The greatest value of a decision-making cockpit like we have deployed is that it can be used seamlessly during normal and crisis times, but we can deploy the same technology with regional maps and key indicators. Public policy. ”
