Large-scale cleaning in the Smart City of the future

Showcase:

A day in the Smart City – vision of a clean city.

Dr Karl Engelbert Wenzel describes his scenario of a smart day

“Drones fan out to inspect the location, equipped with 3D cameras and GPS function. Via the cloud, they actuate municipal machines that then make their way to the location of use.

“On high-rise buildings, robots with suction pads move along the facades to clean the windows, but only where there is no self-cleaning infrastructure, for example roller shutters with a self-cleaning function. In office skyscrapers, building monitoring cameras provide information via spectral analysis about serious deviations from the desired situation, such as a leaking tub of yoghurt in the departmental kitchen.

“A swarm of cleaning drones carrying biodegradable cleaning agents is dispatched. For normal cleaning, air conditioning is used to take in dust particles via an ionised airstream. The waste collected by daily cleaning is automatically separated and recycled on-site, where possible. Only the residual waste is picked up by autonomous waste collectors. In residential skyscrapers, there are private wash systems in the underground car parks, where the driver gets out of the car and the car drives autonomously through the car wash and parks itself.

“Meanwhile, the resident can make their way to their apartment and hand over any remaining tasks to their humanoid service robot, who is capable of using tools. There are greenhouses on the mezzanine floors of the office skyscrapers, in which sensors monitor the moisture level of the soil and dispatch watering drones as required. Within the home, gamification of cleaning is on the rise, as everything is more interactive on the outskirts of the megacity.

“The vacuum cleaner logs who has used it and for how long, as well as how many dust particles were vacuumed. Points are scored for this, as well as for preparing meals using the semiautomatic food processor. Meanwhile, the electric broom keeps the terrace clean and the allotment can be cultivated effortlessly using watering sensors.

“After a long bike ride, the pedelec can be cleaned to a shine automatically in centrally accessible sharing facilities, while thanks to nanoparticles the active clothing has already cleaned itself.

“Come the evening, all of the cleaning machines are back at the charging station, apart from in those areas where it is best to clean at night – like in commercial areas that are not in full use at this time.”
