Smart buildings play a unique role. How and why?

Buildings are an important lever in the quest for sustainability. Besides the fact that people spend 90% of their time in them, they are responsible for around 40% of global energy consumption. Harnessing this enormous potential for energy savings is crucial for future smart cities.

Join us at Expo 2020 Dubai as we use smart building technology from Siemens to measure and monitor sustainability metrics! MindSphere® collects, combines, and analyzes data from thousands of data points in buildings - in real-time on site.

The MindSphere Future World Series brings together people who care to help make our world smarter, more livable, and sustainable. To make an impact that counts, we set out challenges to find viable solutions to crucial sustainability issues with IoT.

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!
