Innovative technology for inclusive urban design
Johannesburg Development Agency, UN-Habitat, Wits University of Johannesburg, South Africa
The explosive growth of cities has created challenges for city planners.
Ericsson Research created a Mixed Reality prototype to be tested as an add-on to the Block-by-Block civic participation process that UN-Habitat has developed together with Mojang.
Our 5G and cloud capabilities will form the backbone of transformational mixed reality applications that can provide an inclusive tool for urban designers and planners.
