ER3DS Makes Cities Smarter

ER3DS makes cities smarter by emission reduction using 3D spatial sensing and analysis
In the new project on Emission Reduction in Smart Cities Using 3D Spatial Sensing and Analysis (ER3DS) the combination of energy modeling, highly detailed 3D geographic sensing and computation will allow us to reveal a completely new picture of the current energy situation [...]

The 3D spatial data processing group had the opportunity to collaborate with the team of Prof. Tzu-Ping Lin from National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan, within the frame of a study dealing with carbon emission reduction measures in urban environments.
One option of reducing carbon emission by buildings is to install photovoltaic (PV) panels in [...]

We use methods like laser scanning and GIS in combination with computer science to simulate the sun’s path and the respective shadows that are cast by 3D objects. Thereby, we can assess the solar potential for certain areas and surfaces. Solar potential assessments can play a crucial role in studies that have [...]
