BERLIN SCIENCE WEEK — OPEN VISIT OF SMART CITY LAB

T-Labs introduces its vision of future cities while highlighting how digitization can contribute to smart and sustainable urban development. Visit the Smart City Lab to learn hands-on how cities of the future are shaped.

organizer: Telekom Innovation Laboratories, T-Labs
address: Raum Safari, 15. floor, Ernst-Reuter-Platz 7, 10587 Berlin


The Smart City Lab enables an interoperable test-environment to develop prototypes and to use and adapt innovations from various technical fields. Here you can see how an “Urban Cockpit” can monitor a city’s air quality, noise pollution, water consumption or controls the city lighting to minimize electricity consumption. See and touch a mock up version of the smart city and learn about the future!

What are Smart Cities?

The idea of a “Smart city” is that new digital technologies will help to make cities greener, more efficient, to stimulate participation and to enhance citizens’ quality of life. Typical examples are electro-mobility, intelligent waste-bins, online citizen services, smart street lightening and sharing services.

How are we going to achieve this?

Technically, the next milestone of Smart City is an interoperable system, where each single element is part of an integrated, holistic system. A “system of systems” should create an open environment that is provider-independent. To make all this happen, all single components a digital city needs are, just like the cells of an organism, part of a DNA, in the form of technical standards, legislation and common social values. The Smart City Lab of the Telekom Innovation Laboratories will take part in the creation of that DNA. Together with “mySMARTLife”¹, a project funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program, we form alliances between cities, universities and industries.

Visit us and learn hands-on how T-Labs and mySMARTLife shape the cities of the future. In our Smart City Lab experts will demonstrate state of the art projects and answer all of your questions. Simply register here for one of the slots available and build with us your Smart City.
