Dassault Systèmes and SuperMap have committed to work together on platform-driven projects for smart cities and large transportation infrastructure projects.
3D technology specialist, Dassault Systèmes, and geographic information system (GIS) company, SuperMap, have signed a memorandum of understanding to work together on platform-driven projects for smart cities and large transportation infrastructure projects.
The companies also hope to help to create new guidelines for information exchange in these domains and help cities make better use of big data and artificial intelligence (AI) for smart operations, starting with China, one of the world’s largest adopters of building information modelling (BIM).
By combining Dassault’s 3DExperienCity platform and SuperMap’s land mapping technologies, the two companies aim to model and simulate experiences to facilitate more efficient decision-making during the entire lifecycle of buildings, railway networks, roads, highways, mobility hubs and other infrastructure.
Florence Verzelen, executive vice president, industry solutions, field marketing, global affairs, Dassault Systèmes, explained that the collaboration will help create a digital twin experience of cities, railways, territories and other projects under development.
“Smart city initiatives and large transportation infrastructure projects around the world require the successful collaborative innovation and smart operations we can jointly provide”
She added: “But this is only the beginning. As we increase our footprint in this domain, this alliance has the potential to address multiple cities and territories in China and globally.
“Smart city initiatives and large transportation infrastructure projects around the world offer the potential to anticipate and plan for more livable, resilient urban areas, yet require the successful collaborative innovation and smart operations we can jointly provide.”
Song GuanFu, CEO, SuperMap Group, said the deep integration between BIM and GIS has currently achieved breakthroughs in planning, housing construction, transportation, smart city and many other fields: “The strategic cooperation with Dassault Systèmes enables us to jointly make technical innovations in BIM plus GIS areas and build up the CIM being the digital twin of the cities.
