The d-City is a virtual city, built as a composition of data strings coming from real cities around the world including Paris, Philadelphia, Rome, Oklahoma City, Turin, Singapore and Florence. The objective is supporting EY's clients validating the power of data for urban planning and management.
Data-driven cities use open platforms to share data with stakeholders in the ecosystem and citizens. d-City uses a mix of these data sources collected through real time sensors and citizens (Internet of Things paradigm) and links the different "data silos" into a true system-of-systems.
d-City shows the intelligent use of data for Smart Mobility use cases, namely "Safety and security" and "Multimodality". Three outcomes for citizens and public administrations are represented:
|•||Definition of policies to drive city urban planning|
|•||Real-time management of day-to-day city operations to optimize available resources|
|•||Development of smart services for city users|
