Smart planning for smart cities: automating city planning processes

Back to search results
In an era of rapid urbanisation there is a critical need for research into the design of smart planning evaluation systems. This research aims to develop and evaluate planning support systems that can improve transparency, accountability and efficiency in planning future smart and liveable cities. The research will establish principles for the design of smart planning evaluation, with consideration to the state of existing systems, availability of input data, transparency of algorithms and communication of automated analysis, including its limitations. This project will build and test an open-source planning support system across three case study cities: Sydney, London and Phoenix.
