Data4City: The Urban Voice Shapes the City of the Future
Through smart networks, Data4City (D4C) designs a model that is based on the needs of citizens. The wishes of the inhabitants become the driving force for innovation and urban development for the smart city of tomorrow!
Study Participants for Data4City
For the project, resident panels are set up for the neighborhoods in Dresden and are continuously surveyed.
The data platform and interactive app is constructed based on the responses from the brief surveys given to participants from the neighborhoods of Johannstadt and Friedrichstadt. Topics that affect the residents range from questions about public transportation, security, delivery services to the overall infrastructure of the neighborhoods.
The D4C is coupled together as an App and sensor technology. By using these two tools, data can be quickly disseminated and continuously made visible for residents through a neighborhood dashboard.
Small and big businesses in the neighborhoods can also benefit from the data acquired that help to improve marketing and general offers for residents.

City Planning for the Future
A community is a living entity that is in a constant change and development. By using ‘community panels’, the needs and wishes of residents are provided to give an accurate view of daily life.
The invaluable data that is collected gives service providers and city planners the opportunity to focus on demand-driven, citizen-centered and intelligent urban planning.
