Why wait for others to take the first step? 

Everyone counts, so together with you – we will take action to create a more sustainable and liveable future for us and for generations to come – with the help of the Internet of Things (IoT).


It starts with you!

 

With the MindSphere Future World Series, we create opportunities for everyone to contribute: whether you're a sustainability freak, an IoT enthusiast, an environmental activist, a business representative, a hacker, an Expo visitor, a techie... we want you to join. 

Take your chance to make a change!

Why you? Because we need to connect brighter minds to create a better future!

Together with you, we want to make an impact that counts. Therefore we set our activities to find viable solutions to crucial sustainability issues. Get involved, share your ideas and expertise and help shape the way we will live in the cities of the future.

The Big Five Topics of the MindSphere Future World Series

How does a city become smart?

 

By connecting the Big Five Topics – Buildings, Energy, Mobility, Industry, and Water – to the Internet of Things (IoT) and using the resulting data in a smart, holistic way!

With the MindSphere Future World Series, we are tackling challenges on these topics – exploring how we can leverage the power of IoT – to create more livable, environmentally-friendly and sustainable cities.

Buildings - The human habitat

1 October 2021 - 6 November 2021

Buildings are responsible for around 40 percent of global energy consumption and are the place where most people spend up to 90% of their time. So why not track key metrics of building performance to monitor their environmental impact – and optimize energy and water consumption?

All in real time, remote or in person!

Mobility - Everything on the move

12 December 2021 - 15 January 2022

Transportation has become one of the most crucial assets in our everyday lives. By 2050 we are seeing an exponential rise in mobility demand: 3x more passenger movement predicted globally, 70% of the worlds population will live in cities, and more than 30% of global energy demand from transportation.

Help to create beneficial transportation networks for everyone!

Let's unlock the full potential of digitalization for future smart cities!

At the heart of the MindSphere Future World Series stands the ground-breaking MindSphere Smart City App and its IoT framework that bring the physical Expo site into the digital space. 

The app is designed to digitally optimize Expo 2020 Dubai, enhancing the visitor experience and reducing energy and water use during the six-month event. Initially operating across two domains – environmental monitoring and irrigation – the app will collect, monitor, correlate and analyze data from the site, and visualize it to allow real-time monitoring and control of infrastructure from static and mobile devices. 

Be one of the great minds during the MindSphere Future Hacks and make the Big Five – Buildings, Energy, Mobility, Industry and Water – smarter!

MindSphere Smart City App was honored with the iF-Design Award

We are connecting the physical world with the digital world - bringing IoT to life!
