UrbanTwin: seeing double for sustainability
A consortium of Swiss research institutes, led by EPFL, has begun working on UrbanTwin to make an artificial intelligence driven and ecologically sensitive model of the energy, water and waste systems of the town of Aigle. The aim: to help boost sustainability.
“Google Earth on steroids” gives a boost to urban development
Uzufly’s technology uses aerial imaging to generate 3D models of cities and regions with advanced precision, enabling urban planners to incorporate full-scale designs of all types of architectural and urban structures.
A high-speed metro in the Swiss Alps?
A new EPFL-University of Lausanne project led by Prof. L. Laloui (LMS) and Prof. M. Jaboyedoff (ISTE) is to explore the potential of high-speed transportation in the mountains to promote sustainable alpine tourism and help regional communities remain viable and help slow ever-increasing urbanization. As the populations of our cities continue to swell, often at the expense of regional communities, EPFL and the University of Lausanne (UNIL) have begun researching potential solutions to connect alpine communities to high-speed transport routes in the most sustainable way possible.
