Smart Light has been implemented at the Hoekenrodeplein in Amsterdam

Featured image

The Hoekenrodeplein in Amsterdam South East is now equipped with streetlights with smart applications

In this project Cisco, A2 Networks, Buidling ICT, Philips, Alliander, KPN and Amsterdam Smart City worked together to meet the request of the City District to turn the Hoekenrodeplein into a safe and pleasant place to live and use. The square is completely rebuilt. Different applications have been realized on the square, like adaptive lighting, cameras and a public Wifi network. The streetlights can be adapted from a distance or can be automatically adapted through sensors. This can be adjusted to different circumstances, for example to a different atmosphere, to a type of event or to the weather. By doing so a pleasant experience can be created and the safety will increase. On February the first, this initiative has been launched and celebrated in presence of City District Manager Emile Jaensch of Amsterdam South East and Ger Baron, CTO of the municipality of Amsterdam.

In the future the system will dim the lights and more energy will be saved. This energy can be used for the supply of a Wifi network or to measure the air quality. The next step is to further expand these smart street lights to the Arena Boulevard and in the whole area surrounding it. Also different opportunities to communicate for visitors, the catering industry and retailers will be added in the future. This initiative serves as a base for other projects in Amsterdam on a bigger scale.

Behind this initiative there is a cooperation in the field of smart lighting between Eindhoven, Rotterdam and Amsterdam, the project Smart Lights in Metropolitan areas. Former alderman Gehrels signed a covenant with her colleagues from Rotterdam and Eindhoven in October 2012.

De Slimme Stad - Slimme beleidsontwikkeling en data

Featured image

Steden staan niet los van elkaar. Nieuwere generaties verkeersdeelnemers vinden het normaal om te werken in een andere stad dan waar ze wonen. Maar ook hun vrienden, familie en sociale activiteiten bevinden zich steeds vaker in andere steden. Waar precies en welke belangrijke verkeersstromen levert dit op? En hoe kunnen we hierop beleid ontwikkelen? Tot voor kort waren we voor de antwoorden op dit soort vragen aangewezen op verkeersmodellen of statistieken als het OViN. Deze zijn echter (vaak) niet geschikt om verkeersbewegingen multimodaal in kaart te brengen. Of van jaar op jaar de ontwikkelingen te monitoren. Laat staan om betrouwbare uitspraken mee te doen. Kunnen nieuwe technieken en big data afkomstig uit bijvoorbeeld GSM, GPS, data fusion en image processing hier uitkomst bieden...

Steden staan niet los van elkaar. Nieuwere generaties verkeersdeelnemers vinden het normaal om te werken in een andere stad dan waar ze wonen. Maar ook hun vrienden, familie en sociale activiteiten bevinden zich steeds vaker in andere steden. Waar precies en welke belangrijke verkeersstromen levert dit op? En hoe kunnen we hierop beleid ontwikkelen?

Tot voor kort waren we voor de antwoorden op dit soort vragen aangewezen op verkeersmodellen of statistieken als het OViN. Deze zijn echter (vaak) niet geschikt om verkeersbewegingen multimodaal in kaart te brengen. Of van jaar op jaar de ontwikkelingen te monitoren. Laat staan om betrouwbare uitspraken mee te doen. Kunnen nieuwe technieken en big data afkomstig uit bijvoorbeeld GSM, GPS, data fusion en image processing hier uitkomst bieden? Op een kleiner schaalniveau, wegvakken en kruisingen, zijn we al snel aangewezen op microsimulatie. Vaak ingewikkelde, tijdrovende en kostbare analyses. Kunnen nieuwe technieken en big data helpen het verkeer in goede banen te leiden; op strategisch, tactisch en operationeel niveau? Na enkele korte informatieve inleidingen willen we tijdens deze middag verkennen welke vragen u beantwoord wilt zien en hoe deze technieken hieraan bij zouden kunnen dragen. Voor wie?

Het programma is interessant voor medewerkers van gemeenten, provincies, stadsregio’s, het Rijk, reizigersorganisaties en openbaarvervoerbedrijven. Let op: CROW-KpVV kan besluiten dat deelname niet mogelijk is, bijvoorbeeld als blijkt dat bepaalde groepen oververtegenwoordigd zijn of als het maximum aantal deelnemers overschreden wordt. Medewerkers van decentrale overheden krijgen voorrang.

Knowledge mile

Featured image

The Knowledge Mile is a livinglab in Amsterdam that runs from the Amstelplein to the city hall of the municipality of Amsterdam. The Wibautstraat and Weesperstraat are the two main streets at the centre of this area. Both are well known for the urban challenges they face, such as high traffic volumes, flooding and air pollution. The area is also known as a world-class knowledge cluster with the campusses of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, the University of Amsterdam and Amsterdam University of Arts.

The Knowledge Mile is a place to establish crucial connections and to achieve productive partnerships, fruitful networks and creative interaction. With a community of 30.000 residents, 60.000 students and almost 200 organisations, hotels, museums, social and municipal institutions together we aim to improve the quality of life in the area, by improving and sharing knowledge and facilitating new connections at our Meetup’s. This is a space to interact and share ideas.

The Knowledge Mile is also a business investment area where all organisations join forces to improve the work/life climate in the field of joint investments in communication/marketing, security, viability and physical movement.

More than half of the dwellings in Amsterdam are labeled as energy efficient

Featured image

It is the first time that more than half of the dwellings in Amsterdam are labelled as energy efficient.

In 2015 50,2 percent of the labeled dwellings in the city got a C or higher, a year before this was only 49,4 percent. These numbers come from an analysis of dataplatform LocalFocus based on numbers from Klimaatmonitor, Rijkswaterstaat. On the national level the percentage of energy efficiency labels is a bit higher, namely 53 percent. In 2009 this was only 43 percent.

The label indicates the extent to which a house is energy efficient: an A-label indicates that the dwelling scores well in terms of isolation, isolated glass and an efficient boiler. The least efficient label is the G-label. One in 25 labelled dwellings in Amsterdam still have this label. Nationally this is about 1 in 35.

Since the first of January 2015 it is obliged to mention the final energy efficiency label if you want to sell or rent your house. Who doesn’t do that, risks receiving a fine.

Regional differences At the moment about 2.5 million dwellings have an energy efficiency label, this is about one third of the total housing supply. Most Dutch dwellings have a C-label: 759.000 dwellings, which is one third of total dwellings with an energy efficiency label.
