Dassault Systèmes Drives the Digital Transformation of Cities Worldwide
Dassault Systèmes announced that it will showcase digital platforms as the urban development infrastructure for the 21st century at World Cities Summit 2018 in Singapore from July 8-11. Dassault Systèmes is indeed uniquely positioned to demonstrate how its 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables industry, government and citizens worldwide to harness the virtual world and transform territorial resources into strategic assets that support sustainable urban planning.
In the context of this year’s theme, “Liveable & Sustainable Cities: embracing the future through innovation and collaboration,” Dassault Systèmes will feature immersive virtual reality experiences as well as demos on the cloud supporting mobility and global instant collaboration. The company will illustrate the holistic and systemic approach to planning and collaboration made possible with 3DEXPERIENCity. As 3DEXPERIENCity is powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, it provides a single digital environment to manage data, processes and people in sustainable cities. 3DEXPERIENCity is already being used by cities worldwide including Singapore; Jaipur, India; and Rennes, France to improve quality of life.
At the event, use cases from the “Virtual Singapore” platform will demonstrate the use of 3DEXPERIENCity for simulations and virtual tests of new solutions to urban planning problems. These use cases range from planning a neighborhood park based on demographics, shadows and vegetation, to scientifically assessing the impacts of wind, sun and noise on a residential area, to coordinating roadwork and closures to minimize disruptions for citizens.
During the opening plenary session on July 9, Bernard Charlès, Vice Chairman and CEO, Dassault Systèmes, will also discuss how cities must embrace innovative ideas and solutions for developing livable and sustainable cities of the future.
“Dassault Systèmes was recognized this year as the world’s most sustainable company, in part for the sustainability value of our 3DEXPERIENCE platform on domains like cities. Making urban innovation social, the virtual world extends and improves the real world,” said Bernard Charlès, Vice Chairman and CEO, Dassault Systèmes. “Mobility, for example, is no longer confined to the automotive sector. Innovative ecosystems bringing together local authorities, industrial firms, tradespeople and citizens are digitally inventing smart new transport solutions. 3DEXPERIENCity lets these ecosystems collaboratively see and evaluate the ‘what ifs’ of where they live, work and commute, before committing any resources to creating the future. This is the new reality.”
