MindSphere City Graph

How can cities leverage the benefits of digitalization for the good of its citizens, environment, and economy?

Siemens and Microsoft are working together with customers to address core urban challenges and developing MindSphere City Graph - an Open Urban Platform, which supports digital models of urban design, providing rich context to enable the new generation of city applications.

This collaboration targets the needs of cross vertical data integration and analysis within cities, communities, districts, or campuses with an Open Urban Platform based on Siemens MindSphere® the leading industrial IoT as a service solution. The integration of the new Microsoft Azure Digital Twin and City Graph Services into MindSphere will offer cities the possibility to break through information silos and have for the first time access to information put in proper context.

To get a fair digital representation of a city we need to create a model of the reality and have the possibility to add context to the entities, e.g. relationships between city systems. Therefore, different domains (electricity, individual and public transportation, waste disposal, etc.) can be merged in one digital city model. Having a graph with entities of the real world and enriching them with live data coming from connected devices and integrated legacy systems and their relationships is the key enabler to control the present, track the past and predict the future.

We have a solution

Siemens MindSphere City Graph is a solution that offers a new way to optimize city operations. It creates a digital twin of urban spaces, allowing cities to model, monitor and control physical infrastructure. Through the integration of IoT data, legacy systems and other data sources, stakeholders of a city gain insights and understand changes as they happen. MindSphere City Graph provides the openness for solutions providers to integrate and deliver sustainable value for a city while enabling open data for cities through an open standard based approach.
