Next Generation Smart Cities

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.
