The University of Southampton’s Web Science Institute will help build a new intelligent merchant city from the ‘internet up’ in a new partnership with Fawley Waterside Limited.

The institute has joined a core technical group that includes Cisco, IBM, Siemens and Vodafone as it develops intelligent infrastructure for the continent’s first town-scale smart city.

Plans for Fawley Waterside will replace the former power station on the outskirts of the New Forest with a thriving residential and commercial waterside community.

Professor Dame Wendy Hall, Executive Director of the Web Science Institute and Regius Professor in Computer Science, says, “We are delighted to be part of this group and to help balance the social and the technical aspects of such an ambitious and brave project.”
