Your life in the mega city. How will cities and security technology develop in the next 20 years? We take a look into the future!
The future in 20 years: Two thirds of the world's population will live in cities in 2030 as predicted by the United Nations. By then, there will be numerous mega cities with populations of over 20 million. EVVA already carries out projects with city character, such as TownTown in Vienna or the Überseequartier HafenCity in Hamburg.
What the future holds
New challenges for security
Security plays a key role anywhere where lots of people live and meet. Over five billion people will live in mega cities by 2030. There will be no fall in the number of thefts, break-ins and other crimes in the coming decades.
Electronics and mechanics combined
There will be two major developments in building technology compared with the present day, where we still mainly rely on individual systems. In the 2030s, security systems such as access control, biometrics or video will be firmly combined in an intelligent complete networked system. Attacks from hackers will pose the biggest risk. For this reason, many people will continue to use a combined solution with the good old key. The mega city combines a wide range of different requirements and needs. A major challenge and an opportunity at the same time, not just for security service providers.
City in the city: Security in the city
The business park in the centre of Vienna is the largest project of its kind in Austria. Twenty-one office buildings are housed over a total area of 128,500 m². Here you can find the customer report on the TownTown project
