The purpose of the Smart City Analytics and Insights project under Urban ICT Arena would be to develop new innovative digital and mobile services based on the new open real-time city data available. The insight and understanding from analytics will provide the leads and triggers for the new use cases and services that will be possible to develop, and the value delivered from these new services to the user groups targeted.
This project would aim to develop examples of new digital services to address the current issues and challenges in the Slakthusomådet/Arenaområdet. These new digital services would be developed based on the new insights gained from innovative visualization and analysis of the real-time data on the flow of vehicles, parking, bicycles and pedestrians, their correlations with big events, weather and other parameters, and mapping these transport needs with existing public transport schedules and capacity.
The new services could be in the form of improved facts and insights to guide management decisions on safety, transport and city planning and public transport capacities, but also guidance to visitors. In addition, it could provide new attractive services to commercial enterprises.
