Mobility and transport are crucial for a city to function properly. Amsterdam is considered the world capital of cycling; 32% of traffic movement in Amsterdam is by bike and 63% of its inhabitants use their bike on daily basis. The number of registered electrical car owners in the Netherlands increased with 53% to 28.889 in 2016. Since 2008 car sharing increased with 376%. However, this is less than 1% of the total car use. Innovative ideas and concepts can help to improve the city’s accessibility, so share your ideas and concepts here.

Case Study: Networks in the Food Transport in Amsterdam. Contacts needed.

Hi! My name is Moises from Mexico. I am PhD at Wageningen University. I am currently working on a case study about Amsterdam. I would like to make call for your collaboration. I am working on a case study about the networks around food transport in Amsterdam. I am looking to get to know people that are related to the topic and talk to them. I am particularly interested on innovative ways of transporting food within the city and on analysing the governance perspective of this phenomenon.

Thank you so much in advance!

Best regards,

RFI from Australia - Automatic signage/bollards

Please find below a request for information from the Australian Sunshine Coast Council, member of and the Australian Smart Cities Association:

RFI from ASCA Members - Automatic signage/bollards
The Sunshine Coast Council is interested to hear from other members who have successfully implemented an integrated signage/bollard solution.

We have a junction, sketched below, where the council is looking to install electronically controlled bollards to be able to block off one end of a street – we obviously need signage that links to the bollards that could be (for example):-

Blank with bollards down (road open)
Flashing a warning with bollards down (road closed)
Road closed with bollards up (road closed)
Flashing a warning with bollards about to retract (road closed)

The bollards should not raise if there’s an object on top of them (e.g. car, pedestrian) and this must be automatically detected via camera, in road sensors, etc., etc.

The bollards should be able to be controlled in any number of ways, for example:-
Local key / remote
Automatic timer (e.g. Friday 6pm-Friday 11pm)
remote central management solution
Emergency Vehicle Priority
This is not a formal RFQ but a request to make contact with other members, suppliers etc. who have been able to install an integrated system and would be willing to share contacts, lessons learned etc.

If you’re able to help, please contact David Coleman on +61 (0)408 074768 or

Looking for EV-drivers for an innovative research project (Dutch)

The Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences is looking for electric vehicle drivers to take part in their research project. They developed a platform to monitor energy consumption. You will receive several power sensors that could be connected to appliances. The platform will contribute to a better insight in your energy consumption including your electric vehicle.

De Hogeschool van Amsterdam heeft een platform ontwikkeld waarbij EV-rijders eenvoudig het energiegebruik van het eigen huishouden en het energiegebruik van de elektrische auto kunnen bijhouden.

Wij zijn op zoek naar 50 EV-rijders die dit platform willen testen!
Geïnteresseerd? Lees verder!

Wij bieden 50 personen met een elektrische auto de unieke mogelijkheid om dit platform te testen! Deze selecte groep krijgt vanaf september 2017 tot februari 2018 toegang tot het platform. U ontvangt van ons verschillende kleine power meters die het u mogelijk maken om uw energieverbruik van een aantal apparaten (wasmachine e.d.) bij te houden. Met de app en de website krijgt u goed zicht op uw totale energieverbruik, waar u ook bent.

Lijkt het u leuk om deel te nemen of wilt u meer informatie over het project? Kijk dan op of neem contact op met Milan Tamis, onderzoeker Hogeschool van Amsterdam-

Request for participation survey Smart Mobility in Amsterdam

(Nederlandstalige versie onderaan)

As part of the final project of the bachelor Sustainable Innovation at the University of Technology Eindhoven, I'm interested in investigating innovations dealing with car use in an urban environment. ASC happens to 'help' two of such project, 'De Digitale Wegbeheerder' (Smart Traffic Management) en Praktijkproef Amsterdam (Amsterdam Practice Trial). This special 'architecture' makes ASC worthy to be included in the analysis on how Smart Mobility changes society. I'm particularly interested in how ASC helps projects in general and these two projects specifically.

I would like to contact someone within ASC who can provide information (through an interview) on for example the relation between various parties, expectations,
problems and how they are overcome, in the context of the projects 'De Digitale Wegbeheerder' (Smart Traffic Management) en Praktijkproef Amsterdam (Amsterdam Practice Trial).

Such an interview would preferably take place in the months November or December. I expect it would last less than 1 hour, at a location of your choice.

Best Regards,

Simon Karsten

Ik ben een bachelorstudent Sustainable Innovation aan de Technische Universiteit Eindhoven. In het kader van het afsluitende project van deze bacheloropleiding, ben ik geïnteresseerd in projecten op het gebied van Smart Mobility in een stedelijke omgeving, gericht op autogebruik. Hierbij viel Amsterdam Smart City op als organisatie waarin verkeerstechnologieën worden ontwikkeld en begeleid. Vooral de projecten 'De Digitale Wegbeheerder' (Smart Traffic Management) en Praktijkproef Amsterdam (Amsterdam Practice Trial) passen binnen deze interesses.

Het project waaraan ik werk, is gericht op het fenomeen "Smart Mobility", en hoe dit veranderingen (vooral buiten het technologisch domein) teweeg brengt in Amsterdam. Om hier uitspraken over te doen, is het van belang de geschiedenis en de ideeën over de toekomst te achterhalen van de eerder genoemde projecten. Daarnaast is de situatie in Amsterdam zo dat de rol van ASC omtrent deze projecten interessant is voor mijn eigen project. Denk bijvoorbeeld aan de relatie met de diverse partijen, problemen en hoe die zijn opgelost, en verwachtingen.

Om hier een completer beeld van te krijgen, zou ik graag contact op willen nemen met iemand, om uit te nodigen voor een gesprek (interview), waarin ik meer te weten kan komen over ASC, de relatie met projecten in het algemeen en specifiek de relatie tussen Digitale Wegbeheerder, Praktijkproef Amsterdam en Amsterdam Smart City (door de jaren heen). Hopelijk is binnen uw organisatie iemand bereid mij hier meer inzicht in te verschaffen.

Het zou mijn project vooruithelpen als zo’n gesprek plaats kan vinden in de maand November of December. Ik verwacht dat de duur van het gesprek minder dan een uur zal zijn, op een locatie naar keuze.

Met vriendelijke groet,

Simon Karsten

Pilot participants for on-demand parcel pick-up

Wuunder already offers a domestic and international shipping service for documents, parcels and pallets. In Amsterdam we're testing an additional service. Here we offer an on-demand pick-up within one hour. With only a mobile phone and a pen you can ship your parcel. One (bike) courier collect the shipments and will do the hand-over to multiple carrier companies. This avoids multiple parcel delivery vans within the city. Interested? We're looking for people that enjoy giving feedback to make our service even better.
