Adri Wischmann, Dutch Innovation Café - Smart Cities, Sofia 2017

  1. 1. Dutch Innovation Café Smart Cities June 22nd 2017 Adri Wischmann (IoT Nederland) Smart Cities & Smart People
  2. 2. Adri Wischmann (52) Owner/Founder of: ( developers of Internet-of-Things-solutions) Lives in: Emmen, The Netherlands (10km from German border)
  3. 3. Worldpopulation is growing at a stagering speed!
  4. 4. Year Population
 in Cities 1800 3 % 1900 14% 1950 30% 2008 50% 2016 54% 2050 70-75% We are changing from ‘hunter/gatherers’ to an ‘urban species’. Every year more people are settling in cities around the world.
  5. 5. Sofia: 1.3 million people live in the city 2.3 million live in Metropolitan Area Amsterdam : 0.8 million people live in the city 2.3 million live in Metropolitan Area
  6. 6. Amsterdam Smart City 740+ Years old, 165 Grachten (100km canals), 1200 Bridges 812000 Citizens, 881000 Bicycles (63% citizens use a bike every day) 17.620.000 visitors per year
  7. 7. What is a “Smart City”? A developed urban area that creates sustainable economic development and high quality of life by excelling in multiple key areas; economy, mobility, environment, people, living, and government. Excelling in these key areas can be done so through strong human capital, social capital, and/or ICT infrastructure. Or? A smart city is a designation given to a city that incorporates information and communication technologies (ICT) to enhance the quality and performance of urban services such as energy, transportation and utilities in order to reduce resource consumption, wastage and overall costs. The overarching aim of a smart city is to enhance the quality of living for its citizens through smart technology. Or?
  8. 8. Amsterdam Smart City (ASC) is your innovation platform for a futureproof city! ASC is constantly challenging businesses, residents, the municipality and knowledge institutions to test innovative ideas & solutions for urban issues. This contributes to the liveability of the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area, promotes sustainable economic growth and helps develop new markets.
  9. 9. Amsterdam has a big parking-problem with narrow streets and many canals 
 (even citizens have to wait 10 years for a parking-permit in the centre) 30% of all cars driving in Amsterdam are looking for a parking-spot. (imagine the waste in time, the stress, the fuel and the polution we could save ourselves)
  10. 10. How does Amsterdam Smart City work? - Collective approach: ASC – Partners – Innovation - Central position Citizens - Circular /Efficient use of resources - Sharing/spreading Knowledge - Economic viability Improving efficiency en lowering cost WAS the big engine behind Smart Cities Now... Improving quality of life and health for the citizens is the main goal!
  11. 11. 11 Program-partners... and nearly 100 Project-partners...
  12. 12. Amsterdam Economic Board Tackling urban challenges through collaboration between governmental agencies, research institutions and the trade and industry sector. 25 boardmembers - CEO’s of large companies - University leaders - Mayor and Aldermen Together formulate strategy for the future of Amsterdam Metropolitan Area 5 Metropolitan Challenges: - Circular Economy - Digital Connectivity - Health - Mobility - Talent (finding, keeping and making use of..)
  13. 13. Smart Citizen Platform Smart Citizen is a platform to generate participatory processes of people in the citie Connecting data, people and knowledge, the objective of the platform is to serve as a node for building productive and open indicators, and distributed tools, and thereafter the collective construction of the city for its own inhabitants.
  14. 14.
  15. 15. The City of Amsterdam has several concrete initiatives itselve: City of Amsterdam: Datalab A workshop, knowledge centre and open stage for civil servants, partners and inhabitants interested in data in Amsterdam. City of Amsterdam: Chief Technology Office The CTO office of the Municipality of Amsterdam collaborates with all departments from the municipality to make innovation happen in the city. They work on themes, such as: e-health, circular economy, smart mobility, sharing economy, cooperation with start-ups and innovative procurement. City of Amsterdam: Amsterdam Elektrisch Amsterdam electric stimulates frequent business drivers (such as taxis and vans) to switch to electric vehicles and further expands the network of public charging points. The aim is to give electric transport a strong stimulus. After all, electric transport is cleaner, quieter and more economical.
  16. 16. City of Amsterdam: Amsterdam In Business Amsterdam inbusiness assists foreign companies with the establishment and expansion of their activities in the Netherlands. City of Amsterdam: Department of Planning and Sustainability Making Amsterdam The work of the City of Amsterdam's department of Planning and Sustainability integrates the higher levels of regional and long term planning into to the details of public space design. We search for new approaches and stimulate bottom up processes to integrate solutions in the field of urbanisation, mobility and water management in multidisciplinary teams. City of Amsterdam: GGD Amsterdam Amsterdam Health Organisation for health care like vaccinations.
  17. 17. Experimenting... You simply HAVE TO! But you need room to manouver ... the rules and regulations!
  18. 18. Festivals are excellent testinggrounds for Smart City innovations.. Events with hundreds to ten-thousands of people that last for a few days then disappear and iterate for the next version. Testing: -Housing -Food -Lighting -Noise -Crowdcontrol -Energy-usage -Transport -Water -Sustainability -Off-Grid -Waste -Etc..
  19. 19. Amsterdam ArenA is a LivingLab Innovationcentre equipped with thousands of sensors and innovations
 Making it possible to experiment with buildings, light, environment, people (crowds) at sportevents,
 concerts, etc.
  20. 20.
  21. 21. B. Amsterdam 250 Companies 33500 m2 office space 3900 m2 event space 1600 m2 rooftop park
  22. 22. Smart Cities = Connected Cities Sensors are the eyes and ears of a (smart) system Sensors create measument-values which are a virtual representation of what is happening (in the city) Only by measuring and comparing we can see what/how the city is doing.. react and improve upon it! Data is the fuel that powers a Smartcity-engine..
  23. 23. Just a few simple examples (out of thousands): Monitoring roads: For traffic congestion -Redirecting traffic: saving fuel, improving air-quality -Emergency vehicle redirection saving lives -Improving public transport situation -Improving planning (more efficient use of infrastructure) Monitoring parkingspaces (and redirecting cars so they will find their spot) Monitoring ‘customer-traffic’ in shops & restaurants Or to adapt road-lighting: Adaptive (to save energy), dynamic (depending on who walks by: elderly need more light), Emergencies (guiding vehicles)
  24. 24. Connectivity requires infrastructure Sensors are getting cheaper by the day but connectivity is relativly expensive. Multiply that by thousands of sensors..
  25. 25. Next to commercial solutions from Telco’s with cell-towers (3G, 4G, 5G, Narrow Band) There now is an open crowdsourced solution where IoT-data can be transported: Lora Lora – Low Power, Long Range (Low Bandwidth) Making it possible to communicate small datapackets from low power devices (3-5 years battery-life) over a distance of 10-15km (inner city 1-2km) 1 gateway can handle up to 10.000 nodes (sensors) Wireless communication
  26. 26. The Things Network (TTN) LoraWAN-Network can be used without Wifi-password, no subscription, zero setupcosts Low costs Because the reach is very high and the cost of the equipment is low, covering an entire city can be done with a small investment. The city of Amsterdam was covered with only 10 gateways at the cost of 1200 dollars each. Community driven Crowdsourced in 300+ Cities in 80 countries HQ Amsterdam Citizens and companies are buying gateways with their own money.. to make the city smart!
  27. 27. Also in Sofia!
  28. 28. Smart wastemanagment Smart Streetlight-hub
  29. 29. Hackathons/Creathons speed up innovations for Smart Cities Creative people with a limited amount of time (30 hours) finding solutions, inventing new products, starting new companies.
  30. 30. “Don’t tell me the sky is the limit.. when there are footsteps on the moon” In developing the cities of the future the only boundary we will encounter is our lack of imagination. Благодаря за вашето внимание
