The Smartcity ImpactLab team will work on developing tools that can aid urban planners and spatial designers with the challenges they face to design future-proof cities. These challenges span topics such as mobility, sustainability, inequality and wellbeing.
The Smartcity ImpactLab is developed in close cooperation with the Metropoolregio Rotterdam Den Haag and will be first implemented in Rotterdam. This cooperation shows that the urgency of the challenges is felt by the problem owners.
Currently, their decision-making processes can't keep up with the growth of technological disruptions, climate goals and population. The multidisciplinary ImpactLab team will design, build and implement a tool to aid in this process. This tool will encompass digital, real-time simulations combined with tangible 3D city maps. Overlaying a digital simulation on a 3D map of the city allows for interactive planning, idea communication and decision-making.
Do you want to be part of the team that shapes the future of Erasmus University’s campus? Then this is your unique opportunity to join. Together with your teammates you will be collecting insights, developing prototypes and setting up sensors on campus to make the campus more user friendly and sustainable. You will get a chance to work closely with the Real Estate and Facilities team to align on priorities and get insights into how the campus is currently being run. If you are excited to work with data, sensors and 3D printed models, this project is for you. This tool will encompass digital, real-time simulations combined with tangible 3D city maps. Overlaying a digital simulation on a 3D map of the city allows for interactive planning, idea communication and decision-making.
