The Municipality of The Hague is developing a Living Lab on the coast of Scheveningen in order to test new technological solutions for social, economic and environmental challenges. One of these technological solutions is our online Digital Twin dashboard where (live) data is visualised and can be analysed. The first step is to look at pedestrian and bicycle data to, among other things, support the management of peak traffic.
The Municipality of The Hague is developing a Living Lab on the coast of Scheveningen to learn how digitisation and technological solutions can contribute to solutions for social, economic and societal challenges facing the city. The municipality is learning what is needed for smart applications to succeed in an existing urban context, how these applications can better meet the needs of residents and which collaboration partners should be involved. One of those partners is Argaleo, who has connected the platform DigiTwin to the data portal of The Hague.
"The visualization of data in the Argaleo dashboard helps us to easily analyze data and place it in a broader urban context. At the same time, it enables us to anticipate social challenges. " - Yvette Entius, Program Manager Digital Innovation & Smart Cities.
Within the Startup in Residence InterGov program of the Dutch government, Argaleo has won an innovation competition with the concept 'Crowd Safety Manager'. The municipality of The Hague is one of the initiators and participants. This project is executed in the Citydeal program "A smart city, this is how you do it! In this program, pedestrian and bicycle data will initially be linked to the dashboard to provide insight into peak traffic volumes in the city.
Within the municipality of The Hague various municipal services have shown interest in making different data sources visually available through DigiTwin, for example in the field of environment, supervision and enforcement and mobility. At the same time the municipality wants to investigate how data from different sources can be unlocked and shared through DigiTwin. An example is data from the smart sound sensors that are now hanging in Scheveningen. With this, the Digital Twin can support short and long term insight into social issues of the city of tomorrow.
The visualization of data in the Argaleo dashboard helps us to easily analyze data and place it in a broader urban context. At the same time it enables us to anticipate social challenges.
