Smart Water Meter Lab

Amsterdam is not a city that needs to worry about water. However there are many cities around the world that are seeing much more extended dry periods and will soon run out of water. More and more global cities will run out of water in next few decades unless water use is radically changed.

CITIXL is now testing 15 wireless smart water meters in De Ceuvel, a clean tech living lab in Amsterdam that asks the question: How can we measure or monitor water consumption? And what new tools can we co-create that encourage water conservation?

Smart Camera Lab

CCTV Cameras are getting really really smart. Embedded with new layers like deep-learning, wire framing, motion tracking and facial recognition capabilities, these smart cameras deliver lots of details and insights about our streets and sidewalks. 

But how will all these cutting edge cameras be used in the future? CITIXL teamed up with Smart Taipei and Umbo Camera to explore how these cameras will impact society in Amsterdam. The goal of this experiment was to use data as dialogue see what these cameras mean for our future smart city.
