The companies will use a range of technologies including digital twins and AR
Experiential reality (XR) technology company Transmira has teamed with Kognition, a maker of cyber-physical enterprise AI, to develop digital transformation solutions for augmented smart cities and intelligent architecture.
Transmira and Kognition will collaborate as part of a consortium of XR companies to develop and implement latest technology and vanguard best practices to create the next generation of smart cities and intelligent architecture. These properties will include stadiums and arenas, office buildings, retail centres, university campuses, hotels, airports and more.
Cities of the future
Massive global changes have affected the way people work, play, shop and socialise, creating the need for innovative new ideas and disruptive business practices. According to the partners, cities of the future will be defined by transforming buildings and venues into intelligent architecture that is smart, responsive, interactive, and sustainable.
The consortium of XR companies plan to leverage both new and existing technologies, bringing together augmented reality, virtual reality digital twins, integrated Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and devices, blockchain technology, 5G, edge-computing and hybrid cloud, AI and machine learning.
“The exciting part of integrating Kognition’s AI with Transmira’s XR technology is the opportunity for truly end-to-end digital transformation of a venue, as well as how users interact with and engage with the space,” said Matias Klein, co-founder and CEO of Kognition.
“This holistic approach is the future of smart spaces and truly amplifies the power of our smart building AI, resulting in enhanced customer experiences, streamlined operations, cost-effective security controls and most importantly, safer spaces for people.”
“This is a tremendously important initiative that is set to change the face of cities all around the world, with game-changing potential for a variety of industries and use cases”
The consortium said end-to-end solutions for large-scale buildings, sports stadiums and entertainment venues are available immediately while expanded features and worldwide offerings will be available from summer 2021.
“With our Omniscape technology and XR platform, we bring location to life using AR and VR technology, AI-driven holograms, data visualisation, interactive content, as well as unique monetisation capabilities,” added Robert Rice, founder and CEO, Transmira.
“This creates new revenue streams, engages consumers and completely changes the way we interact with each other, as well as with our work, play and social spaces.”
He continued: “This is a tremendously important initiative that is set to change the face of cities all around the world, with game-changing potential for a variety of industries and use cases, as we build our planet in a more intelligent and sustainable manner.”
