Human-Scale Scan Cars

Technology like big data and smart sensors can help solve urban challenges. But when collecting data in the city, what public values are involved? Exploring new applications, like scan cars, helps to grasp the complexity of Responsible Urban Digitization.

With our Responsible Urban Digitization program, we research, develop and integrate these innovative data science technologies to help solve urban challenges. At the same time, we explore how to embed society’s public and democratic values in the design of these innovations.

The scan car as a use case
One such example of sensing technologies used in cities are “scan cars”. These vehicles are equipped with sensors to collect data on the urban environment. Scan cars are becoming increasingly smart to improve efficiency and help the municipality to carry out tasks – from parking policy enforcement to waste registration.
