MY VISION OF THE CITY OF THE FUTURE By Markus Kerbs
LOCATION Due to a shortage of space and utilization of individual advantages, entire cities will be found in new locations:o On the watero Underwatero In spaceo On other planets
LIVINGIn my vision there will be smart city apartments located close to the center and smart apartmentsand smart houses on the outskirts of the city, with access to public transport within at most 750m.Smart homes achieve a very low energy consumption though the usage of a varietytechnologies, like smart meters. Furthermore, smart homes are totally connectedhomes, meaning that all devices are linked with the home computer system, which allows peopleto remote control things inside their home and automate tasks like the shopping process.
PRODUCTION FACILITIES Io Some manufacturing plants will be relocated under the ground, many kilometers below the actual city, in order to save place, but still being in a close distance to the place where the products are needed, without directly disturbing the city dwellerso Those plants can make use of geothermal energy, allowing the energy- intensive production to achieve cost savingso Due to the fact that nobody is bothered by the production process under the ground, facilities can operate day and night, seven days a week.o A special subway will be used for transportation, going in and out of the facilities
PRODUCTION FACILITIES IICertain plants will be outsourced into the ocean and outer space (Space manufacturing) in orderto utilize individual advantages, as a cheap cooling possibility by the use of sea water or theeconomical movement of materials in space.
PUBLIC TRANSPORTSmart public transport will be the mostefficient way of traveling inside the city.
TRAVEL CENTERTravel centers will allow towners to do mid-rangetravels via plane, high-speed train and ship.
SPACE ELEVATORo A space elevator will allow towners to do long-range travels and transport objects to and from spaceo Spacecrafters will be used to continue travels in space
PRIVATE TRANSPORT Io Motorized private transport will be limited inside the cityo There will be intelligent magnetic streets in the air which provide energy to vehicles (e.g. through inductive transfer) and remote control them autonomously to one„s desired destination, minimizing accidents and improving the traffic flowo Park towers will allow vehicles to park inside the future city. These towers are directly connected to public transport systemso The entire city is emission-free
PRIVATE TRANSPORT IIo The ground of the city will be available for pedestrians, bikes and small intelligent short-range vehicles. Through this concept, the future city can minimize the use of traffic lights and personal hazardso Taxis and smart citiy car-sharing solutions will enable towners to shift to close destinations
PRIVATE TRANSPORT IIIo Small intelligent short-range vehicles will be used to move inside the cityo Mid-range vehicles will be used to travel from the outskirts of the city or from out of town
ENERGY GENERATIONo The biggest part of the energy requirements of the future city should be covered by itself through Fusion Power, Solar, Wind and Geothermal Energy. Thereby should every complex of building generate at least a significant part of its own power demand with green energy. Otherwise the owner has to pay a certain penalty feeo The rest of the required energy could be transferred from Space-based Solar Power, where it will be collected through huge solar panels and send to earth with microwaves
FEEDING SYSTEMo Urban Agriculture will be one of the major requirements in order to assure the minimum level of agricultural products for towners. Total economic independence from preliminary and agricultural products is simply not cost-effectiveo In the future it will be crucial that a city has an effective fresh water recycling system. Additionally a desalination of seawater could be necessary in order to stay autonomous
ADDITIONAL INFORMATIONo The core of the future city will be built in several layers, so that space will be used in an optimal wayo Automatic instant retinal scanning will be as an identification and payment methodo The entire city of the future should have an Ultra Speed Coverage without the need of any wires
