The research takes into account city infrastructure change opportunities looking at future city pathways to address negative conditions such as sound and air pollution, fragmentation, ghettoization and impoverished areas.

Active and virtual monitoring of cities is undertaken with modelling of factors such as noise, land surface temperature (LST), accessibility and density.

Once key research areas have been identified, solutions are formulated and presented to local authorities with real world interventions being deployed and tested. This assists local government in formulating sustainable future city plans.
