 What is the future of the city? Perceptible City lab gives you the answer


Underground world is one of the research projects of the laboratory. In this experiment, the researchers put two robots into the city sewer. The robots collect the DNA of viruses and bacteria in the sewage and transmit the data of sewage flow and temperature in real time. By analyzing these data, researchers can not only change the future of epidemiology, but also help scientists predict disease outbreaks, understand the causes of chronic diseases, and thus affect problem-solving and policy-making.

Fabio Duarte, chief researcher of the perceptible City laboratory of MIT: we know that there is a huge database under our city, but we havent explored the data, so we have been building robots. They can enter the sewer to collect samples and take them back to the laboratory. With these data, we can predict flu outbreaks before people start going to hospitals.

Zhende, Reuters: This is the prototype of the worlds first autopilot and one of the laboratory research projects. Originally built for the canal in Amsterdam, the idea was that it could form pontoons with other self driving boats, collect garbage or transport goods, and collect data about the city.

In addition to sewage collection robots and automatic boats, there are also sensors on taxis that can measure air pollution and traffic conditions. These may sound futuristic, but the future is much closer than you think. The perceptible City lab also works with and receives funding from governments, foundations and large companies around the world. Once the research project is approved, it will become a catalyst for start-ups. Carlo latti, founder of the perceptible City lab at MIT: many times people talk about smart cities, they focus on technology, but we dont think its the right way. The reason why we are called perceptible City laboratory is that we want to focus on people, and we want to have a city that not only can sense, but also has strong perception ability.
