Imagining A Future City Filled With Driverless Cars And Without Any Parking Spaces

Imagining A Future City Filled With Driverless Cars And Without Any Parking Spaces | Aquiline | Scoop.it

As self-driving cars move from fantasy to reality, what kind of effect will they have on cities?

A research and urban prototyping project called Shuffle City investigates, and in the process, becomes a manifesto for a new kind of modern city--one that depends less on traditional public transportation like buses or light rail and more on creating a fleet of continuously moving automated vehicles to serve urban mobility needs.

Shuffle City looks at the new possibilities that could arise from cities transitioning to cars without drivers. If cars were put into some constant flow as a public good, and if people didn’t all have their own vehicles, there would be no need for the concrete wastelands and lifeless towers that serve as a parking infrastructure in the urban landscapes of car-centric cities like Phoenix and Los Angeles (Under the current ownership model, the average car spends 21 hours per day parked.)

The share of city space ruled by parking lots will shrink, making way for more green space, environmental buffers, workspace, housing, retail, and denser planning for more walkable cities...

Um desenho da cidade de nossos sonhos. Carros sem motoristas, ruas sem espaço para estacionamento, e por aí vai.

Kim Spence-Jones's curator insight, August 8, 2013 2:53 AM

Interface between cars and homes is an interesting area of R&D. Everything from entertainment synchronising to battery management.

miguel sa's curator insight, September 4, 2013 4:17 PM

Jacque Fresco has been talking about this sort of thing for awhile now, looks like its coming closer to reality~

Smart Cities: Technology, Sustainability & Innovation for a Better World

Smart Cities: Technology, Sustainability & Innovation for a Better World | Aquiline | Scoop.it

They only occupy two per cent of the Earth’s land mass, but cities today use a huge amount of the planet’s natural capital, consuming 75 % of global resources and generating 80 % of global greenhouse gas emissions.

As the world population grows to 9 billion by 2050, the number of those living in urban areas will swell by 3 billion to 6.3 billion. With demand for energy and resources set to spike on the back of urban population growth, smart cities have emerged as the modern answer to the wave of urbanisation sweeping across the globe.

 

What defines a smart city?

Put simply, smart cities integrate diverse technologies to reduce its environmental impact. Using a more formal definition from a recent report by the United Cities and Local Governments, smart cities use new technologies, innovation and knowledge management to become more liveable, functional, competitive and modern, bringing together six key fields of performance: the economy, mobility, the environment, citizenship, quality of life and management.

Crowdsourcing utopia: 21st century urbanism

Crowdsourcing utopia: 21st century urbanism | Aquiline | Scoop.it

New forms of cooperative urbanism are harnessing the internet to achive grand civic goals.

A generation of intrepid software developers is creating powerful tools for ordinary people to work together to achieve civic goals. SeeClickFix.com and FixMyStreet.com are US and UK websites where users can report problems in their area directly to the relevant local authority. Collapsed walls, broken signage and faulty streetlighting can be logged by anyone in the community. Reports are mapped online while statistics about how swiftly issues are dealt with are automatically published, encouraging authorities to act quickly. Rather than individual complainants acting in isolation, the sites allow strangers to cooperate in holding their elected officials to account while improving their public spaces.

Critics argue the sites foster apathy − encouraging the public to rely on local authorities for relatively minor maintenance jobs rather than taking responsibility as a neighbourhood, but nevertheless, the idea of using decentralised web-based input as a generator for development is gathering momentum.

The Middle East, explained in one (sort of terrifying) chart

The Middle East, explained in one (sort of terrifying) chart | Aquiline | Scoop.it

"What could be simpler than the Middle East? A well-known Egyptian blogger who writes under the pseudonym The Big Pharaoh put together this chart laying out the region’s rivalries and alliances. He’s kindly granted me permission to post it, so that Americans might better understand the region. The joke is that it’s not a joke; this is actually pretty accurate."

Interesting and (as it says) terrifying.

So we should have peace in the Middle East in maybe 7.59 billion years when the sun goes all red giant and we all burn up anyway. However, in the meantime...check out this cool chart of friends and foes. It all makes sense now, yah?

Seth Dixon's curator insight, June 11, 2013 11:52 AM

I'm not posting this to be salacious, but to highlight popular culture's obsession with a superficial, external beauty that is artificial on many different levels.  Even the stars aren't 'good enough' in their photo shoots.  So I ask, what are the impacts on society if virtually all the 'beautiful people' aren't as beautiful as we think they are?  Are we striving to reach some model of perfection that isn't even attainable for models?  Does it make us feel uglier and damper our collective self-esteems?

El TSJM suspende cautelarmente la privatización sanitaria en Madrid

El tribunal aprecia que existen circunstancias de especial urgencia para detener el proceso

El mundo Revolucionario de Cora's curator insight, July 10, 2013 8:50 AM

El Tribunal Superior de Justicia de Madrid (TSJM) ha suspendido cautelarmente el proceso de privatización sanitaria en la Comunidad de Madrid, por el que se pretende "externalizar" la gestión de los hospitales Infanta Leonor, Infanta Sofía, Infanta Cristina, del Henares, del Sureste y del Tajo. Eso fue lo que reclamó el Partido Socialista de Madrid (PSM)

El Tribunal aprecia que, efectivamente, existen circunstancias de especial urgencia para paralizar el proceso sin ni siquiera escuchar antes los argumentos de la Comundiad de Madrid por cuanto ya se ha llegado a anunciar incluso la adjudicación de los contratos  por parte del consejero de Sanidad, Javier Fernández Lasquetty.

La causa que da origen a la denuncia presentada por los socialistas es la reducción de las garantías que las empresas que optan a la privatización tendrían que depositar en caso de resultar adjudicatarias. Esa garantía, del 5% del valor del contrato, fue modificada por la Consejería de Sanidad a cuatro días de la finalización del plazo de presentación de solicitudes como una corrección de errores. El departamento que dirigie Javier Fernández Lasquetty incluyó la palabra "anual" en el texto, lo que implica una reducción del 90% dado que el los contratos de concesión son por 10 años

Apple is now rejecting new medical apps that include drug dosages

Apple is now rejecting new medical apps that include drug dosages | Aquiline | Scoop.it

In lieu of the FDA’s recent inquiry into the uCheck urine analyzer app, it appears Apple might be tightening restrictions on medical app developers.

It appears that a number of developers have struggled recently to get medical applications into the App Store with the reason below being cited.

Below is the response developers have told iMedicalApps:

 

"We can only accept medical dosage information submitted by the medicine manufacturer."

 

To be honest, the comments are more insightful than the article, as is often the case in mHealth these days.
