The European Union provides over 800,000, - euro grant for the "Smart City Monitor" project. The subsidy is made available to a Brabant consortium of which Argaleo is a member. The Smart City Monitor provides insight into visitor and traffic flows in the inner city. Smart use of this data helps to keep the city attractive, healthy and accessible for everyone. The development of this digital twin dashboard is done in collaboration with the municipality of Den Bosch, the municipality of Breda, Jheronimus Academy of Data Science, Breda University of Applied Sciences and Geodan.
In addition to providing insight into visitor and traffic flows, the monitor also provides data on, for example, air quality and visitor perceptions. In this way, various data can be linked. This provides important information for making predictions and for coming up with appropriate solutions.
Think, for example, of smart provisioning, sustainable transport and further greening. Or entrepreneurs who can adjust their planning and marketing to predicted traffic. Insight into length of stay and travel also helps to solve bottlenecks in, for example, frequently used bicycle and car routes, or to spread events more over space and time.
"With this EU grant we can take further steps to apply data in a smart way in our city. We are not doing this alone. We work together with partners on a healthy and vital city centre. I am proud of that. Together with education and business, we can increase mutual knowledge and come up with innovative solutions for the challenges of today and tomorrow."
Jan Hoskam, Alderman 's-Hertogenbosch
