With overpopulation in major cities resulting in failing infrastructure and increasing damage to the environment, many organizations are looking for efficient and progressive solutions. One of these solutions are “smart” cities, which are designed to increase residents’ qualities of life and reduce their carbon footprint using intelligent technology.

These cities will combine sustainable living with environmentally responsible access to travel. Prototypes are being developed around the globe as communities, which allow major industry players, such as Bosch, to create, test and perfect innovative solutions to life and travel in urban locations.

An example of a “smart” community being developed in the United States is The Shipyards Communities by FivePoint Holdings (formerly known as Lennar Urban) in San Francisco. Bosch is working with FivePoint Holdings to blend connected mobility and efficient housing on the project, which is being constructed on San Francisco’s last undeveloped piece of land—a 750-acre lot on the city’s southeast waterfront.

“It’s really unique to have a city of that size and have the opportunity to develop 12,000 residences,” says Matthew Jennings, Bosch’s regional president of the Americas for Bosch Software Innovations. “When we were planning, we began trying to determine what we could do differently and what we could do make it intelligent, smart and convenient.”

Just as important as providing green living spaces is providing energy efficient access to local amenities. For the past 130 years, Bosch has been developing technology that aims to provide a better way of life.

“We offer software for the smart city of the future,” says Mike Mansuetti, president of Bosch North America. “If we look at IoT, which is backbone of connected communities, we’re connecting on all three levels: sensors, software and services. We’re taking those technologies and bringing the capability to the consumer space, including smart city applications.”
