UYSAL: E THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION OF THE FUTURE WILL BE INTELLIGENT CITY UY
Uysal said that he saw digitization as a turning point for the future. Internet Today, I see the system of the internet of things that we call smart city as a great turning point in human history in the future like industrial revolution. The municipality is an institution where people are offered the most services in every area. If there is going to be a transformation in the cities, the biggest task falls to the municipalities. Istanbul was the capital of 1.500 years in the past but could not keep its importance if it did not catch the age. For this reason, if we cannot do the requirements of transformation in Istanbul, other cities do not lose their importance Bu.
UYSAL: AŞ THE DIGITALIZATION INVESTMENTS MUST INCREASE TO IMPROVE CULTURAL CITIES AL
Uysal pointed out that as the digital investments increased, cities became more comfortable and said, “Today there is a backward movement of migrations from cities as intelligence increases in intelligence. In this case, we used to do a certain time in a particular place. Now with the development of technology, people can now do their jobs from home, wherever they want. This situation leads to a decrease in the concentration of human mobility and external migration. That is why the mayors have an important role. We can maintain the importance of the city and maintain the value of the world by rationalizing the city and offering smart services to people. If we bring the smart systems needed by people to the city, we offer a more comfortable and comfortable living environment. We have these opportunities and we should evaluate them Bu.
INCREASED SERVICE 2 FLOOR WITH DRIVING BRANCH
Uysal said that although digitalization investments are costly, they make profit in time. We opened the Ümraniye-Çekmeköy / Sancaktepe Metro Line, which is the continuation of the Üsküdar-Ümraniye subway, recently. This line also has Turkey's first driverless metro property. This system provides convenience and speed in transportation. For example, if the driver is on an hourly 3 by subway, this time 1 and a half is reduced. Digitalization investments can be seen as costly, but a profitable investment with the savings they provide over time. For example, the cost of the driverless metron is much higher than the 10. However, the service provided by the driverless coach is twice as high as the driver. We reduced the traffic density in Istanbul by 17 with our smart transportation systems investments. These investments; fuel economy, time saving, more efficient use of time when people can spend more time in production are evaluated with the main elements of the economy is an extraordinary contribution. We have reduced the cost by half in the services we convert to digital as a municipality. Belediye
