It is projected that by 2050 70% of the world's population will live in cities consuming the vast bulk of the world's resources. New insights and solutions are urgently required to manage these scarce resources efficiently and to operate new and regenerated urban spaces for the benefit of all*. This trend is already underway, with new generations of sensor networks in public and private managed physical spaces being developed. Living PlanIT has developed the essential platform that extracts, aggregates, analyses and manages sensor data in these environments. We are in an emerging growth sector, collaborating with many of the world’s leading technology companies.
