European Cities Face Sustainability Challenges and More
While digital twin techniques have been applied successfully in manufacturing and construction, cities are so complex that they require more measuring and modelling effort. Moreover, since they are evolving all the time, it is not enough to simply measure and model cities only once. This article explores whether digital twin techniques can meet city planning needs and help them face their wide-ranging challenges – from sustainability to education, digitalization, infrastructure and healthcare.

Moshe Gazit, director of business development at Thinkz, explains how IoT data in the hands of citizens can promote more sustainable choices, and introduces a new clean air routing tool that will be free-to-use in cities following its launch into Europe.
Q: What makes this such an important time for cities to be able to connect with their citizens? How is Thinkz supporting that work?
The idea behind what Thinkz is doing is to connect IoT to people, and connect IoTs to one another for the sake of people. The reason it’s so important to do so is because cities are getting bigger – there are more people coming to live in cities. We believe that someone coming to a city who is able to manage themselves better helps city operations without city management needing to provide everything. By transforming IoT data into useful information and putting it in the hands of people, cities become better places to be and it creates a better urban experience.
