Evaluating whether smart city technologies can be a solution to environmental problems, Dr. R. Erdem Erkul said, " the pandemic, which sits on the world agenda, has shown us that we need to take 'strict measures', especially on healthy living and environmental problems. So, how can we provide them? The answer is hidden in smart city technologies." said.
In recent days, smart urbanization projects and processes, as well as mucilage, forest fires, waste management, water and energy resources management are frequently encountered. When it comes to smart urbanization, finding solutions to environmental problems and using resources effectively are among the priorities. Because, according to the United Nations, the world's population is estimated to reach 9.7 billion in 2050, and the proportion of the population living in cities will also reach 70 percent. And this is considered among the indicators that cities and resources are at risk if they are not used effectively.
"TECHNOLOGY HAS BECOME AN ESSENTIAL NEED"
Cerebrum Tech, one of the industry's leading technology manufacturers in the field of smart urbanization processes, is the founder and Chairman of the Board of Directors. R. Erdem Erkul drew attention to the issue of productivity in particular when evaluating the issue. "The increasing population density and the pandemic, which has been sitting on the world agenda for about two years, have shown us that we need to take 'strict measures', especially on healthy living and environmental problems. And how can we provide them? The answer is hidden in smart city technologies. As we develop smart city technologies, we especially focus on ideas that can reverse environmental problems. For example, we design technology products enriched with artificial intelligence that can detect forest fires and changes in our seas in seconds. With intelligent traffic and parking management systems, we can reduce traffic density by 30 percent and achieve more than 25 percent efficiency in fuel costs. Thanks to artificial intelligence-based data analysis and Decision Support Systems, we can make data-based predictions and take urgent measures. Thanks to intelligent energy management, we achieve significant energy savings. We can re-create many other technologies for cities to take smart measures. At the stage of efficient use of our country's resources, technology has become an essential need."he made his assessment.
AMONG THE AREAS WHERE THE MOST EFFECTIVE SOLUTION IS PRODUCED ARE' TRANSPORT ' PROBLEMS
The smart cities ecosystem, which has a Sunday size of $ 83.1 billion in 2019, is projected to reach $ 297 billion by 2026, while America, the United Kingdom and Singapore are the largest markets for smart urbanization technologies. Although the largest smart city segment focuses on 'smart infrastructure technologies', the most effective solution is the 'transport' issues.
