Smart cities are cities that, while improving the lives of their residents, also use innovative solutions to improve their environmental impact. One way to do this is to intelligently manage the speed of public transportation. A new standard for guiding cities through this process has been published.
ISO 37167: 2021
ISO 37167 ( ISO 37167: 2021 ) , Smart Community Infrastructure – Intelligent Transportation to save energy by driving slowly, detailing how to manage and speed public transport features so that they consume less energy while working Gives. Guides include trains, buses, trucks and ships.
Dr. Hiroyuki Sakai, lead author of the team of experts who developed the standard, said that all modes of public transportation and freight have different parameters that, if properly managed, can use the least amount of energy.
“It is clear that high accelerations and then decelerations consume more energy than slow but steady speeds, and the point is that you get to your destination at the same time,” he said.
Through careful planning and speed management, there is the potential for significant energy savings, resulting in lower financial costs, less impact on the environment, and smoother riding for passengers. This is a win-win situation for everyone.
ISO 37167 is just one of the standards that assist cities in smart transportation, which supports several of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including cheap and clean energy (SDG 7), industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, Cities and Sustainable Communities (SDG 11) and Climate Action (SDG 13).
ISO 37167 was created by the ISO 1 SC Subcommittee, Smart Community Infrastructure, ISO / TC 268 Technical Committee, Cities and Sustainable Communities. ISO / TC 268 / SC 1 Secretariat is maintained by JISC, an ISO member for Japan.
