TLME News Service

Siemens has announced that it is developing a new cloud-based app which will support the World Expo 2020, which is taking place in Dubai.

Siemens intends for the app to be a blueprint for future smart cities.

The app has already connected part of the site’s infrastructure to the Internet of Things.

The app is designed to digitally optimize Expo 2020 Dubai, enhancing the visitor experience and reducing energy and water use during the six-month event.

Initially operating across two domains – environmental monitoring and irrigation – the app will collect, monitor, correlate and analyze data from the site, and visualize it to allow real-time monitoring and control of infrastructure from static and mobile devices.

Dr. Roland Busch, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Technology Officer, Siemens, said: “This new digital application will support Expo 2020 Dubai in becoming the most connected world fair in history; a great step forward as we continue to explore how digitalization and IoT technologies can address urban challenges.

“By integrating the infrastructure of the largest-ever event in the Arab world with the Internet of Things, we have the potential to inform the development of future smart cities around the world.”
