Prediction for Intelligent Transportation Systems

In recent years we have seen an increase in attention to intelligent transportation systems (ITS) around the globe. It is the technological pillar supporting the operations of sustainable smart cities and improving their accessibility and resilience. In this regard, 5G technology is on the way to revolutionize how we exploit different data sources in our […]

Using existing data to tackle big urban forest questions: Introducing Sophie

Credit: Sophie Nitoslawski Did you know, you can actually visit many city websites and download data about all the street trees in your neighborhood? So cool. But if you are like me, you will wonder about the real potential for this data and how it can help cities deal with problems like climate change. Sophie […]

Understanding human relationships with urban forests in cities: being a better roommate.

Greetings! My name is Angie, and I am a postdoc researcher working in the Natural Assets team on the Rogers 5G Smart Campus research project. I am excited to be hosting this blog, where I will talk about cities, nature, technology, smart cities, data, sustainable urban design, forestry, big data, remote sensing… and the kitchen sink. […]

Intelligent Transportation Systems

Transportation systems, ranging from public buses to private logistic fleets, could benefit significantly from the introduction of 5G wireless networks. The low latency, high data volume, and reliability will improve how goods and people move around. Through Rogers 5G network, it is expected to provide end-to-end connectivity across UBC and beyond. UBC has two campuses – […]

Natural Assets: Advancing a 5G Framework for Natural Asset Management

Natural Assets Think of the natural environment you live in – parks provide a space to socialize and exercise. Trees provide shade and cooling in the summer. There are also effects you may not be conscious of in your day-to-day routine – for instance the air purification provided by trees. Parks and trees are all […]

Smart Building Energy and Space Management

UBC is the first 5G smart campus in Canada enabled by Rogers 5G network and a multi-million dollar partnership to fund academic research in 5G applications and applied sciences. To demonstrate the importance of 5G networks in the creation of smart buildings, this project focuses on an important subset of applications – energy and space management.
