With the corona easements, it is important for the municipality of 's-Hertogenbosch to implement these easements safely and smartly. This will facilitate and spread the flow of visitors in the city in a good way. On the one hand the objective is to guarantee a safe and pleasant visit to the city. On the other hand, to facilitate a balanced flow to all shops, restaurants and terraces.
In a digital dashboard of the city, Argaleo cleverly linked and visualized pedestrian data. The dashboard provides "real-time" insight in the current flow of visitors in the city and analyses the historical data. So questions like "what time do people enter the city?" or "from which direction do people enter the city?" are answered by the tool. The municipality sees this Digitwin as a source of data-driven insights, which will help to re-open the city and enter a vibrant Bossche Zomer.
This DigiTwin includes:
- A detailed overview of the pedestrian areas
- Location information of restaurants, shops and terraces
- Live information about traffic flow and pedestrian density
- Tool to analyze historical data
The tool is now in use and will first be used to gain insight and overview of the visitor dynamics of the city. Leading Datastad Den Bosch is not sitting still and is also starting a project with Argaleo and other partners to predict the flow of visitors and to gain insight into the other flows in the city. Think of bicycle, car and public transport. This is also the first step in making mobility more sustainable for the city of tomorrow.
