Smart Cambridge and researchers from Cambridge Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction (CSIC) will create a digital twin of the city to explore the future of commuting and supports policies to improve air quality and reduce congestion. The collaboration focus on delivering a digital prototype, combining traditional urban modelling techniques, new data sources and advanced data analytics.
The initial version of the prototype will be delivered in eight weeks and will include the recent trends of journeys to work in Cambridge, including how people of different ages and employment status travel to work and how different factors affect their travel. The web-based modelling platform will also visualise future development options and give people an opportunity for feedback.
