Life is good in Planet City.
The town is organised around digital conviviality, which allows living, working and feeling everywhere as
if at home. And the inhabitants especially appreciate being at home: Planet City’s housing/accommodations
are both spacious and hyper-connected. They are true cocoons combining comfort and services. The where
doesn’t matter anymore: hyper-connexion makes everything accessible and easy in the blink of the eye. Regarding
moving around, noise-free and clean means of transport are numerous. Planet City owes its remarkable environmental
performances to the use of new technologies coupled with the smart management of centralized system
and the vigilance of inhabitants, who are very respectful of standards and willing to recycle.
Kim is having a digital conversation on the interactive wall with Junsu, her Korean colleague.
Clémence is consulting the planning of the SAV she's sharing with her room-mate and their next door's
neighbours. She geolocates it and checks its availability to take her to the co-working centre this morning.
Alerted by a message, Kim reads informations on her Home Card and notices that a leak has been detected
in the toilet. He clics on "notifying the plumber" and any useful information is sent to the contractor.
Kim's son has just returned from school. Thanks to the personalised intimate space, Kim can keep on working.
He's in it as in a bubble, free to concentrate.
Clémence stops at one stop public in her coworking space.
She scans her fingerprint and prints an authenticated certificate of her affiliation to health insurance.
The home loving inhabitants of Planet City have the possibility to change their homestaging, to communicate
with the outer world, to immerse in experiences until then reserved to public places and shops, all that with a single clic.
Working from home can prove to be both efficient and pleasant. The interactive
wall becomes a communications interface with the rest of the world but also
a device for projection, collaboration and co-publishing.
The tactile interface offers the inhabitants the opportunity to simply draw
their extra lamp with a simple gesture, following their inspiration and creativity.
At night, the “night-time guidance” option can help night owls avoid obstacles
by lightly lighting their way (neon skirting board, halo or light points
In the interactive dressing, clothes are displayed on the wall and can be tried
on using the digital mirror, which can be for example the bathroom wall,
made interactive. One can thus enjoy an enhanced mirror, offering
the possibility to crop, zoom and see on 360°.
With the interactive wall, taking a break, transforming your interior or
videoconferences are available at home, within your nest.
The flexible opaque and/or transparent film-screen Oled technology
will be mature and become widespread. Man Device Interactions
based on sensors, tactile layers and image analyses become
accessible with a high capture quality, superfast broadband
and very high-speed transmission of HD contents, as well as state
of the art connections.
The shared autonomous vehicle (SAV) is a smart mean of transportation
for members of a small community, which can be used as a carrier, deliverer or taxi.
Planet City drives clean and shares! The Shared Autonomous Vehicle (SAV)
is an individual mean of transportation belonging to a collective (family,
neighbours, association, company, retirement home, hotel…), presenting as
a small car, symmetrical (meaning it can drive indifferently in one direction
or the other), connected, geolocalisable, equipped with sensors and devoid
of driving position.
On demand transports, car-pooling, car-sharing: the SAV concentrates
the qualities and functions of both an individual and collective mean of transport.
The SAV is related to a management tool, which organises and
synchronises the schedules of both the various members of the
community and the vehicle. The SAV serves the community: it transports
its members together or separately, realises autonomous tasks such as
picking someone up, making a delivery, running errands, charging its
batteries or undergo servicing…
The members of the community set up all those actions.
The establishment of SAVs requires the autonomous vehicle technology
to have reached maturity, safety and to be widespread (especially in cities).
Legislation will have to be adjusted accordingly.
The Home Card is a datebase linked/attached to the residence allowing for an automated
or personalised exchange with the multiple contractors which can intervene in one's home.
Administrative services can freely access any information concerning them.
For example, transfering data such as property tax, housing-aids requests
or a work permit demand can be done automatically.
The Home Card is an identity, descriptive, technical, administrative
or commercial database linked to one’s home.
The tenant can decide whether or not to transmit certain type of information
to a third party. In the case of a commercial use for example, the tenant can
access his home’s setup via his tablet in order to simulate new layouts
or the installation of new equipment. The Home Card can inform a craftsman
regarding the location of wires and pipes in an accommodation,
thus making interventions easier and safer.
In Planet City, hyper connexion is standard, and any service making things
easier is thus welcome. The Home Card presupposes the guaranteed safety
and confidentiality of online data.
Besides, the Home Card requires beforehand that the accommodation’s
digitisation device be simple, quick and efficient.
“Individual Domestic Intimacy” is a movable device allowing inhabitants of a unique space (familiy home, joint tenancy)
to live together while still enjoying bubbles of visual and acoustic intimacy. The idea is to “compartementalize” shared spaces
thanks to architectural tricks (such as mobile or modular partitions), the occultation function of which can be total or partial,
pieces of furnitures (sofa, armchair) and dedicated accessories (screen-cushions, micro-desk).
1. Digital intimacy
One can use the cushion-screen to isolate in order to watch a movie,
play video games or chat in videoconference, without disturbing
the rest of the household.
2. Home working
One can take refuge behind a modular partition, sit behind one's
micro-desk and pull up its convertible sections to ensure absolute
quiet and be able to concentrate on work at home, in spite of the
Live together yet individually: the individual domestic intimacy enables
each one's rhythms and aspirations to be respected.
In Planet City, inhabitants are won over to the cause of the
“everything at home”: home working, home teaching/learning, e-shopping,
virtual games and leisure. The time spent at home thus increasing, the need
for individual intimacy becomes more pressing.
The one-stop service is designed to offer citizens three progressive contact points with Public Services. The progression depends
on the complexity of the citizen's need, of the level of service required and the level of assistance he will need. Every contact-point
functions in the same manner: a screen, an input-interface and a vocal or text interactive agent.
The connexion to the One-Stop service from any terminal like a smartphone,
a tablet or a computer centralises and facilitates, via a smart guidance,
the user’s procedures and the management of his personal data.
Terminals allow you to print certified documents (attestation, certificates…)
but also to scan written proofs. One can find them gathered by four
in some public places (Post office, train stations, hospitals…).
Being able to access every public service straight from one’s pocket, in random public places
you’re going through or when necessary, at one’s neighbourhood’s Public Service Centre.
Comfortable and welcoming stalls allowing one to video-confer
with physical interlocutors. Agents manage the access
to the booths and assist users when needed.
Rationalizing and pooling information input, securing digital data, regulating:
the level of requirement of Planet City’s citizens has increased the mutation
of administrations, leading to the implementation of a unique, high performance
and well-adapted public service.
