In cooperation with HvA and Research Group Cities & Visitors “Moving Amsterdam Zuidoost” and CITIXL, we propose to use the UMBO Camera to conduct several impactful experiments to gain insights on social behaviour in public spaces which will help measure the social consequences of simple interventions in these spaces and effect more positive urban environments.
During this research, and in partnership Gemeente Amsterdam Zuidoost, we could replicate and scale these experiments as we experiment, test, gain insights and experience, establish best practices and help prepare actual public “Field Lab” experiments. Testing these technologies using the CITIXL agile approach can have a significant positive impact on market research, urban design and overall quality assurance for residents, students and visitors of the Zuidoost Amsterdam.
Meeting the Mayor of Daegu South Korea this week! We’ll be testing their Ksmartpia LoRa enabled Smart Water Meter as a part of our City Innovation Exchange Lab – 15 wireless water meters to measure water consumption at the clean tech playground De Ceuvel. We’ll be seeing how smart meters can create new water insights for occupants of their hotel, ateliers, studios and cafe.
Service vs Surveillance: Future of our Neighborhood Cameras?
For questions regarding the WARNING signs outside the Makerversity. CITIXL is conducting an experiment in co-operation with The Makerversity and the Marineterrien from June 20-24 in the parking lot in front of the entrance to Building 027E. This is only an experiment which takes place for and during the We Make the City festival to measure the public’s reaction to controversial privacy issues relating to camera surveillance.
If you have comments or questions we encourage you to attend a conversation and public debate with Tom van Arman, co-founder CITIXL and Marc Schoneveld of Data Labs on Thursday June 21 at 16:00 at Makerversity.
The results will be posted on this website and will include the details regarding the camera technology used. Until that time we only want the public to know that nothing will be recorded about personal information nor will recognisable photographs or videos of people be stored.
We ask you to please not contact us in any way about this experiment for the time being. If you e-mail us or contact us we will not reply or comment, so please respect our request and wait until after the results are made public or, even better join the debate.
On a beautiful Saturday morning Tom and Paul worked with 45 Catalonians to help them define high impact problems in their region and brainstorm citizen engagement challenges that would lead towards co-developing solutions.
