The Netherlands Institute for Applied Research (TNO) and imec, have started a multi-year partnership to develop innovations for smart cities and the Internet of Things. Urban liveability is becoming increasingly complex due to rising population growth, tougher government sustainability targets, requirements for CO2-neutral transport and new technological development, such as “Mobility as a Service”.

Thanks to the collaboration, cities are being given accurate insight into the current situation in their city, as well as the ability to predict the effects of future measures on traffic flow, air quality and noise pollution levels. Imec and TNO are now about to develop new modules for “Digital Twins” in collaboration with cities. These modules provide a better assessment framework and action perspective for complex urban decision-making.
