Smart City Monitor

The Smart City Monitor project aims to make the city centers of ‘s-Hertogenbosch and Breda more attractive, accessible, healthy, vital, and sustainable. By preventing overcrowding and ensuring smooth, safe travel for residents and visitors, the project seeks to develop a future-proof system integrated with the Smart City and BrabantRing initiatives.

These vibrant city centers are hubs of innovation, entertainment, and economic activity but have faced challenges such as sustainable mobility, safe visitor distribution, and economic recovery post-COVID-19. The Smart City Monitor addresses these issues by utilizing data to develop smart tools that visualize and manage urban dynamics.

Key applications of the project include:

  1. Economic Recovery: Using real-time data to manage visitor flows and logistics, aiding in the safe and efficient recovery of city center businesses.
  2. Enhanced Accessibility: Improving visitor distribution to strengthen economic vitality and enhance the quality of life for residents and visitors.
  3. Sustainability: Reducing CO2 emissions and promoting healthier urban environments through better traffic management and mobility policies.

By leveraging digital insights and innovative solutions, Smart City Monitor aims to create smarter, safer, and more sustainable city centers.
