Urban Intelligence

Project: Research

Project Details


Despite increasing efforts regarding knowledge valorisation, a significant gap between knowledge development and policy practice remains. Urban Intelligence bridges this gap by bringing cutting edge knowledge to the table, developing new policy concepts and by promoting smart data use.

The professorship of Urban Intelligence takes a multimodal and integrated approach by connecting knowledge of transport engineering, urban planning and urban design. Research output encompasses data-driven projects, such as ‘Multimodal Brabant’ and ‘Measurement Weeks Breda‘, which translate big data into knowledge for policy development.

Furthermore, data analysis tool and data dashboards for cycling, such as ‘CyclePRINT’ have been developed. To enhance the integration of built environment and transportation, we developed the Bicycle-Oriented Development (BOD) concept. This is currently being integrated into an overarching development philosophy, ‘Multimodal Urban Development’, which integrates the optimisation of multimodal networks, location choices for new urban developments and the provision of shared mobility via mobility hubs.
