Amsterdam is a small metropolis with great ambitions. The city is a 'living lab', in which metropolitan tasks are both a challenge and an opportunity to develop and apply new insights, technologies and practices. Knowledge and innovation go hand in hand: gathering, reflecting and researching knowledge form the context within which new applications can be developed. The City of Amsterdam believes that a responsible capital invests in knowledge and innovation and continues to develop in this area. The partnership with AMS Institute helps us achieve this goal.

Project

Hydrographic inspections of quay walls

Climate Resilient Cities

Diving inspections are carried out to calculate the criticality of wooden structures of quay walls. This project analyses the suitability of multibeam echosounder and acoustic camera techniques during these inspections.

Project

Responsible Sensing Lab

Responsible Urban Digitization

Our Responsible Sensing Lab explores how to integrate social values in the design of sensing systems in public space.

Project

Tracking Stolen Bikes

Smart Urban Mobility

80.000 bikes get stolen each year, just in Amsterdam. This outcome made our researchers curious... Where do these bikes go? How do they move? That's when they came up with the idea to place 100 locked GPS-traceable bikes in Amsterdam.

Project

The Ideal(s) City

Circularity in Urban Regions

Amsterdam, just like other cities, faces several urban challenges, whereof most of these are intertwined. The Ideal(s) City project untangles these urban challenges and uses the ocean of information that is already available to gain new insights.

Project

Local Inclusive Future Energy (LIFE) City platform

Urban Energy

Smart planning for energy demand and supply. This will be tested via a smart energy exchange platform in the area of Amsterdam ArenApoort. The result: an electricity grid-friendly and community inclusive innovation to contribute to the energy transition.
