Siemens to Develop ‘Living Lab’ Smart City District in Vienna


Over the next five years, a new ‘smart city’ will rise in Vienna in the waterfront neighborhood of Aspern. Siemens, which has partnered with the city on the project, describes it as “one of the largest urban development projects in Europe.” The nearly $61 million (U.S.) project aims to evolve into an “intelligent city of the future” with 20,000 residents — and 50 percent of the area devoted to public space — by 2030.

From the Siemens announcement: ” Here power supply, building systems, intelligent power grids, and information and communication technologies will interact optimally. The result will be the most efficient resource management possible, with maximum comfort for residents and users.”
