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.
