Excursion and Pitch Carrossel
The day itself is initiated by Future City, an organization that is bridging and creates an exchange of knowledge, thoughts and solution between tech-nerds and urban planning. The program of the day focused on bridging the relationship between municipalities and companies that are working in smart solutions from smart cities.
During the event, several municipalities such as Amersfoort, Apeldoorn, Hilversum, Krimpen a/d/ Ijssel, De Ronde Venen, Sittard-Gellen, Utrecht, and Zwolle are presented. Moreover, the Utrecht province, Zeeland province, and de Bilt also attended the end. The RIVM, Police together with Economic Board Utrecht and future city foundation were also part of the participant on the event.
Bicycle Detection System
In the rise on sustainable transportation, LUMIGUIDE uses NS train service to the event. In this event, LUMIGUIDE presented our smart parking solution for bicycle detection system. Our service is a little bit different than the other company that provides direct digital twin for the municipality.
We focused on the data generation for the digital twins. It is because our bicycle detection system data is created from the fluctuation in the number of bicycles parked in a particular parking facility. We then use the data to learn about travelling and the traffic trend of the resident in the city. The combination of our optical system with advance algorithm made us able to detect the number of bicycles available in a particular location and shows it to the city and cyclists in a digital display sign. Our optical system is the first in the world that is being used to detect bicycle parking location.
In this way, cities can route reduce the number of bicycle park illegally in the city and re-direct them to the nearby parking location with our Route Information System.
