Will anyone still drive cars in years to come, or will the cars do all the driving themselves? How could technology transform our urban environments? And what does it really mean for a city to be “smart’? Deloitte Review’ s 20th issue looks ahead to explore two science-fiction futures that are fast becoming reality: smart cities and the future of mobility.
According to Catherine Engelbert, CEO of Deloitte, the promise of smart cities and mobility is already more than a mere vision. We are beginning to experience a wave of innovations that can fundamentally alter daily life.
In this issue of Deloitte Review, we explore some of the ways that smart cities and the future of mobility are taking shape. Our cars may not fly, but autonomous vehicles are on the road today, and many new cars contain over 100 million lines of code. As you’ ll read, residents of Helsinki are already using a single app to call up and pay for multiple modes of transportation. You’ ll read how data analytics are already helping cities make better decisions about where and how to deploy resources. The city of Buenos Aires is using technology to better manage 27,000 paved blocks, 56,000 sidewalks, 1,000 green spaces, and more than 1 million physical objects such as street lights.
