Digital City is a joint effort of 12 laboratories from PST Paris Est, funded by French Research Innovation Services. Through expertise sharing, the goal is to study and develop first elements that will be used for a digital modelling tool of city.
Digital City consortium studied city physical processes, such as traffic, acoustic, aerolic, hydrology and meteorology. Environment indicators were also explored by the consortium, in order to assess the impact of the above mentioned physical processes in the city : energy demand, greenhouse gases, air quality, mobility, pollutant and water fluxes.
Some virtual reality functionalities were studied, in order to propose interactive simulations and visualization of results within a 3D environment.
