RESEARCHING SMART LIGHTING
Digital Services Helmond
The City of Helmond is going to build its own infrastructure to facilitate digital services in Helmond's public space.
The municipality sees the fibre-optic infrastructure as a utility, in order to realise secure, reliable and fast connections. LightHouse applies a need-driven approach to identify relevant wishes, needs and meaningful opportunities for smart digital services in public space.

Helmond actively supports the use of information technology as a means to manage and govern the city. This applies to the municipal services as well as public services, such as libraries, health care, logistics or public utilities. The aim is to increase the quality of life for citizens through efficient organisation and bridging the gap between governance and citizens.

The City of Helmond is going to build a fast, city wide general infrastructure in the coming 3 years. The municipality sees the fibre-optic infrastructure as a utility, in order to realise secure, reliable and fast connections. Through the realisation of an Urban Data platform, including secure and safe data management, services as education, health care and logistics will be made future proof. The general digital infrastructure facilitates the development and implementation of new digital services in Helmond's public space.

In cooperation with Intemo, TU/e LightHouse advises the municipality and starts at the beginning of 2020 in de neighbourhood Warande to identify, together with residents and other interested parties, the problems they experience or the wishes they have when it comes to public space, for example concerning traffic situations, health care, crime fighting, sports or recreation. Next, we will look into opportunities to improve these within the boundaries of privacy with smart, digital solutions. The project seeks to find an answer to how can we create an even better and safer living environment with the help of Helmond's fibre-optic network.
More information will follow soon.
