Smart cities are seen as the answer to certain challenges, such as overpopulation, resource shortages, and demographic changes. At the same time, more people will live in the city than ever before. This idea poses great challenges to state agencies on the one hand but also benefits from promising opportunities for businesses. This task will explore this area of tension and uncover the vision of a smart city with the help of integrators and service companies. Through the lens of critical design, fictitious artifacts emerge that stimulate the imagination and stimulate discussions about the future in which corporate interests may be changing the relationship between the city and its citizens.
The films are a mosaic of socio-cultural, economic, and geographical conditions, depicting the nuances of the relationship between cores and peripherals, governors and rulers. Movies often capture the city at some point and show the best and worst of the city. It’s subtle, sometimes woven into the story of the protagonist, and sometimes into the stage, not that subtle aspect of the city. In the film, where people and movements were captured and recorded in video, public order, political preferences, cities, communities, and to some extent national institutions were captured with subtle but clear assumptions. These expressions are temporally frozen and not superficial but must be scraped off by going behind the frame and asking non-trivial ones.
You can analyze the transportation policy and its impact on the city based on the expression in the movie and compare it with the actual transportation policy at that time clarified by the government. A framework derived from studying the political and visual history of transport is effective in understanding the evolution of transport policy and its impact on travel types and behaviors. Since the use of transport modes in the film indicates common transport modes and their usage patterns, the film is intended to understand the choice of transport mode that can occur in the context in which the transport mode is used. Provides a wealth of sources of information. Various situations related to work, leisure, emergencies, and socio-economic situations.
Using movies as a means of understanding political issues may not sound fascinating and intuitive, but the movie turns past pages and studies have multiple visual elements that could not exist. Given that it is the best way to capture the dimension, it is logically from newspaper articles, magazines, and other written sources. Such a framework can be used to develop better transport policy goals and to implement measures to achieve these goals. To develop the framework and bring out the finer details, we need to create a context where we can observe the changes. One way to do this is to contrast cities such as Mumbai with other developed cities with good transportation systems and use those contrasts to control the city’s transportation policies and choices, economically and socially. It is to emphasize the cultural and political foundation. shape. Second, this needs to be supported by understanding the actual transcription of the guidelines. This is a way the guidelines have evolved and are endorsed or distorted towards specific transport modes and movement behaviors.
The way we work in our urban environment is changing. The digital landscape is layered on our physical world. In the cities of the future, technology isn’t just for us, it’s separated into a variety of devices and services as it is today. It surrounds us, supports us, and promises an ever-richer urban experience by measuring changes in every movement, temperature, air pollution, and more. It empowers us in a more natural yet powerful way, using the context around us. It’s so familiar and mediocre that you hardly notice it. The city of the future will be smart. We recognize the technology in the immediate vicinity, talk about it, ask questions, and make decisions. Learn how to passcode protect your phones and adjust your social network privacy settings to stay in control.
But it is already one step ahead. They are developing technologies that we know worldwide. A huge collection of cross-references of data points involving a huge number of people and a centralized collection of computer monitoring-closely linked to the vision of a “smart city”. Smart cities need to know who we are, where we are, what we are, and who we are with, to keep our promises. Smart Urban technology leverages pools of information to understand, react and predict the world. This “big data”, as it is called more and more often, is an intrinsic force that permeates and maintains our urban world. Do we know the effective ways in which these systems and their use can change our world, our politics, our economy, and the environment in which we are built? For example, the movie “Brazil” (Gilliam, 1985) describes a future smart city where anything is possible with the right documentation. The city’s services are based on data and technology managed by the Ministry of Information, a totalitarian government sector that acts like a business.
The vision of smart cities now leads to strange conclusions about interaction design. After all, most people don’t know that technology exists and don’t feel that they have technology that affects every part of their lives. It’s time to understand and embrace our role in this process, where interaction design and its human-centered approach must play an active role in the democratization of city planning. Adam Greenfield’s book Against the Smart City (2013) is driven by the interests of companies that can profit from the eccentric vision and discourse around it that is constructed almost exclusively. I conclude that it was.
However, he says, “We can envision and support an alternative vision for smart cities that responds to the needs, demands, and desires of all citizens and understands and functions the complex interconnected imperfections. Suggesting. As urban interaction designers, we can help develop different visions for smart cities. We need smart cities to tackle the problems we face shortly. Companies are very interested in turning cities into markets, but as interaction designers, we take part in this change and place it for the benefit of the community, not where we grow away. You can create it.
