Amsterdam Smart City

Guide to the world's leading smart city

Moqod Goal:

create an interactive platform for urban interaction and sustainability for the city of Amsterdam.


innovation platform improving all the possible spheres of the metropole. The target of the Amsterdam Smart City initiative is healthy economic growth. We developed the project as part of the Municipality of Amsterdam, which has become one of the best examples of smart cities today. As a result, it attracts hundreds of innovation tourists to Amsterdam, who comes there to learn and export urban technologies.

Most recently Moqod and I have been collaborating on a real-time dashboard to visualize crowd sizes on the Marineterrein, an inner-city living lab to explore sustainable living, working, and learning. This dashboard visualizes data collected from the Public Eye, (a system that transforms city cameras into “people counters” that anonymously count density, flow and safe distances between people). This is a ground-breaking project because not only is the AI open source to municipalities like Amsterdam, or say Kiyv, or Lviv, but the real-time data it produces is freely accessible to all. Moqod helps us achieve this goal.
