Smart City: the connected town

How to improve the sustainability of cities and the quality of life for citizens through Digital Twin

The "Digital Twin" helps us to have more sustainable, inclusive and efficient cities.

The National Center for Sustainable Mobility (MOST) for the digital and green transition

The National Center for Sustainable Mobility (MOST), is a project funded under the PNRR that unites some 50 stakeholders active in the transport and infrastructure sectors (universities, research centers, and industrial players) with the aim of accompanying the green and digital transition.

Digitizing our cities, in terms of citizen services and enabling infrastructure, is one of the key processes for pursuing Goal 11 of the UN Agenda 2030, which calls for rethinking cities by making them more inclusive, sustainable and safe.

Among the most enabling and rapidly developing technologies, a key role is taken by all those sensors, systems and analytics software that can generate and derive value from urban data (of infrastructure, weather, flows such as traffic, pedestrians and city-users, ...), tanks to IoT, AI and Big Data.

In this sense, it is easy to understand how the implementation of Digital Twin models of the city can assume strategic importance to support administrations in achieving important goals in terms of sustainability, quality of life and efficiency of services delivered.

In the Smart City environment, in fact, a digital twin continuously collects geospatial information and data from the urban environment to present an up-to-date picture in real time and is able to support advanced predictive and simulation models that also leverage Artificial Intelligence techniques to predict and simulate the impacts of specific planned interventions or unpredictable exogenous events.

The development of digital twins in the urban sphere makes it possible to analyze and model the design of cities and services, identifying and anticipating critical issues and thus envisaging interventions that can improve performance, efficiency, sustainability, security and, more generally, the quality of life of citizens.

Careful and proper data management then, allows the PA to integrate data from public and private sources, generate useful information and services through "control rooms" or "control rooms" and convey integrated services (e.g.: in the field of mobility, energy and water services, TLC services and in the management of retail spaces and activities, ...) enabling innovative forms of public-private partnerships that benefit both citizens and local economic development.

Today, thanks to major research projects, The Lutech Group is integrating new advanced features into its smart city solutions to offer Public Administrations a highly innovative platform capable of covering all their needs.

IoT and AI serving cities as enabling technologies for the implementation of the city's Digital Twin

IoT Security

Quali sono i rischi legati all’IoT Security e come può un’organizzazione proteggere i propri sistemi e dati in modo efficace?

The increasing use of the Internet of Things (IoT) due to the decreasing cost of technology facilitates the implementation of future Digital Twins or Urban Digital Twins due to the consequent increase in information sharing; the digital twin enables a holistic approach in terms of cross-sector optimization of urban infrastructure design, management and operation.

Cities are the most important places to start the transition to sustainability, linking the sustainable development agenda with the ICT agenda of research and pervasive digital development.

The key technological elements are:

  • the collection of data that can also be obtained in real time through advanced sensing and IoT devices
  • the implementation of integrated city management systems
  • Machine Learning algorithms for the simulation of evolutionary scenarios of the smart city and networks represented through the digital twin
  • smart systems to support urban planning and management of issues or disruptions on networks.

This approach makes it possible to plan both short- and long-term actions for urban redevelopment and regeneration and improvement of sustainability and quality of life for citizens.

Through smart city (Smart City) planning, urban-scale improvements and optimizations are possible, such as:

  • more efficient use of resources such as energy, water, materials, and of course more efficient waste disposal;
  • greater territorial control to ensure public safety;
  • the preservation of the natural landscape and sustainable land use;
  • the efficiency of the public transportation system and urban mobility of both people and goods;
  • the integration of services and improvement of existing ones to meet the needs of different age groups of the population.
