How is digitalisation changing our lives?
Entertainment and communication, energy management and security: smart home applications are becoming ever more popular, including in Germany.
The various tools of digitalisation are playing an increasingly central role in people's daily lives. Smart home applications which fulfil private, individual demands and smart building applications which intelligently utilise data to ensure commercial buildings are used and operated sustainably are well known. However, smart applications are also being used independently of buildings and districts under the term "smart living". Smart living is an important emerging market for the German economy. Intelligent building technology in our homes can ensure greater comfort and security, and help to conserve energy. Smart living applications combine important developing markets such as smart healthcare, smart mobility and smart cities.
The existing healthcare system is complex and cumbersome. New, smart strategies are required such as electronic patient records, personnel deployment planning, remote diagnostics, self-care using fitness apps and wearable technology without neglecting data security, and ambient assisted living concepts.
Smart mobility is about much more than self-driving cars. In the future, various semi-automated travel options will be available, from private vehicles to local public transport, which will be intelligently organised by a digital transport infrastructure. This will involve analysing data from signal transmitters, information services, traffic lights, road sensors etc., as well as smart parking or smart logistics concepts.
The smart city concept enables cities to improve the quality of life for their inhabitants in terms of their environment, community, political participation and more by networking with one another with the help of new technological developments in the fields of energy, mobility, city planning and administration as well as information and communication technology.
