But how do you develop a smart, sustainable city? For its transition into a smart city, the City of Amsterdam has teamed up with the Johan Cruijff ArenA, Geodan and other partners. In recent months, it has also been working on its own Amsterdam Smart City Dashboard, which displays the current state of the city and its most critical processes at a glance. It is based on the three key elements for any smart city: energy transition, living environment and transport. Showing the various data within these elements instantly provides the City and its stakeholders with valuable information: about the current situation and, using reliable models and analyses, for the future as well. The predefined KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) help users to monitor and manage the system, because while setting objectives for the smart city is a good thing, measuring progress is even better.
Revealing the city’s rhythms in real time
Decisions surrounding the local energy transition, changes to infrastructure to deal with traffic congestion, homebuilding challenges on an unprecedented level... These issues impacting our physical environment require a long-term vision at the local level. We have no time to waste: we need to get started today. We need access to real-time data, not just to make the right choices and decisions, but also for the smart management of day-to-day processes in our cities. During the WeMakeThe.City event, Geodan launched the Amsterdam Smart City Dashboard together with its partners Huawei, the Johan Cruijff ArenA and the City of Amsterdam. The Dashboard is designed to provide access the overload of data traffic in a transparent way, as well as facilitating local and improved decision-making processes based on real-time data.
