Empirical insights

On their path to becoming smart cities or smart regions, cities and municipalities must intelligently and digitally link all services. This involves digitalising administrative processes, as well as providing efficient digital support for mobility, energy, leisure, and information services. For all of these objectives, it is essential to consistently aggregate different data sources into urban data platforms, enabling services such as smart waste management, analysis of air pollution, free parking slots, multimodal public transport or utilisation of public facilities. These smart city services will be powered by the development of interactive dashboards, digital twins, and machine learning applications based on information streamed into the urban data platform. This approach creates a data-driven ecosystem to support citizens and policy makers with empirical insights and innovative solutions.

“By pledging to the Corporate Net-Zero Standard of the Science Based Targets initiative, d-fine demonstrates its commitment to implementing science-based targets in line with the Paris Climate Agreement, embodying a vision of sustainability in its projects and operations.”

The first glimpses of smart city technology can also be seen in concepts for autonomous vehicles, intelligent charging infrastructure and sustainable energy solutions. It is ideas and projects such as these that can benefit from d-fine’s fully integrated approach of designing complex conceptual solutions to implementing the technologies that underpin them. d-fine’s experts can prepare clients for the technological changes taking place in their environment, from developing business models to prototyping and implementing comprehensive IT system integrations.

d-fine also works alongside public sector bodies, assisting with driving data, improving processes, strengthening sustainability efforts and various other challenges. The consultants work with government agencies, ministries, public companies, research centres, universities, and NGOs, enabling them to deliver more while reducing costs by leveraging knowledge and expertise from numerous successful projects in both the public and private sectors.
