Arthur Knabik is a young enthusiast in the design and implementation of next-gen technology to build smarter cities , and he is the Founder of Urban Systems.
He believes that a global issue has many dimensions. On the issue of smart and sustainable cities, his urbanization project aims to collect information (via GPS / traffic systems - including traffic management) and apply data to better plan (AI) and write a ML methodology to design the best way for traveling via route planning with traffic lights in consideration. The end goal is to create a system that maximizes the efficiency of transit planning and saves time. For larger cities, this system can deliver more meaningful outcomes due to the scalability of time savings.Moreover, this system not only saves time but also helps cities’ environments - due to high traffic congestion on some streets, the ecological parameters of cities may decrease highly - and the less you drive, the more you contribute to making your city much more comfortable to live in.
Sustainable cities and nature are strongly interconnected, and they must co-exist, as it is said before.For example, traffic congestion may not only worsen the environment in cities but also lead to increase of greenhouse gasses. Pine / elm forests take many years to recover from the damage, and they are also flammable due to biological nature - and kill entire ecosystems due to their interconnectivity and wind patterns which accelerate easily. Forest rangers can be called, but they are not as efficient, so we need to rely on rain or water flooding to extinguish the forest fires. To provide a sustainable solution , we need to detect the smoke better and connect weather forecast data so that we can limit the potential spreading of the fire. Saving nature is a key and relevant issue, especially on the front of environmental protection.
Overall, a programming system which can monitor the aforementioned points in a systematic manner will help detect, monitor and prevent future forest fires. By implying the same technology of collecting data and processing it, fires can be extinguished before they spread over a big area and become unstoppable and inextinguishable. The method of extinguishing fires in the bud is not the only one - people should also be monitored to ensure forest fires are not unintentionally started. Using smart systems as surveillance tools in combination with rangers to overall help avoid human beings led catastrophe.
