Recap: Smart City New York

Smart City New York
From May 12th untill May 15th Intemo was in New York for an innovation mission focused on Smart Cities. Together with a Dutch delegation consisting of several companies and organizations, Intemo represented the Dutch Smart City sector in the United States during Smart City New York 2019. The goal was to find scalable projects that can be integrated in the United States.

Together with others, Intemo hosted several workshops, presentations and pitches to national and international visitors. We gladly shared our experience and expertise in Smart City solutions. For example our Smart sensors for measuring and monitoring air quality, the sensor solution which provides unprecedented traffic data and insights from the streets, smart lighting and mobility. Especially the sensor solution for generating traffic data got a lot of attention from the visitors. Traffic data can create new insights which play an essential role in making a city smart. The sensors are completely AVG proof because they were developed based on privacy by design methods, therefor municipalities can integrate them and still be AVG compliant.


Declaration of Intent
During the innovation mission to New York Intemo signed 2 declarations of intent (with Numina and Brainport Smart District) to further strengthen our Smart City portfolio.

Numina
The first declaration of intent was signed with Numina, the supplier of the sensor solution to generate unprecedented traffic data. In the presence of Vice Prime Minister of the Netherlands / Minister of Interiors Kajsa Ollongren, Janus Hoeks (CEO) on behalf of Intemo and Tara Pham (CEO) on behalf of Numina signed a declaration of intent. Both companies will work together more intensively as Intemo will be the distributor of the sensor solution in Europe.

Brainport Smart District
The second declaration of intent was signed with Brainport Smart District (BSD). BSD wants to build the smartest district in the world in Helmond, The Netherlands. As a technology partner Intemo can provide several solutions that facilitate a Smart City and thus being a great match with BSD. The declaration states that Intemo will develop and provide innovative technologies and solutions that can be integrated into the smart district.
