Built on Argaleo’s scalable digital twin platform, the Smart City Monitor provides insight into inner city visitor and traffic flows and also provides statistics in areas such as air quality.
A digital twin city dashboard, being developed by a Dutch consortium of commercial, governmental and educational organisations, has been awarded a €800,000 grant by the European Union through the React-EU programme.
The consortium comprises the municipality of Den Bosch, the city of Breda, Jheronimus Academy of Data Science, Breda University of Applied Sciences and intelligent data companies, Argaleo and Geodan.

The Smart City Monitor platform provides insight into inner city visitor and traffic flows and also provides statistics on air quality, visitor experience, and more.The monitor was developed on Argaleo’s digital twin platform, Digitwin, a scalable application with modules combining location intelligence, artificial intelligence (AI) predictions, real-time data, and business intelligence. Using proven technology, parties are able to develop use cases further.
“We’re partnering up to create a healthy, vital inner city. Joining educational and business forces, we can expand our shared knowledge and arrive at innovative solutions for current and future challenges”
Argaleo said that linking the different data will help to provide evidence-based solutions for intelligent provisioning, sustainable transport, and greening of cities.
Other benefits include entrepreneurs having the tools to adjust their planning and marketing based on anticipated traffic. Insight into the length of stay and travel will also helps tackle bottlenecks on popular bicycle and car routes.
“With this EU grant, we can further apply smart data to our city plans,” said Jan Hoskam, municipal executive of Den Bosch. “We’re not in this alone. We’re partnering up to create a healthy, vital inner city, which I’m proud of. Joining educational and business forces, we can expand our shared knowledge and arrive at innovative solutions for current and future challenges.”
React-EU was established to make additional resources available for an accelerated and resilient economic recovery after Covid-19. Smart City Monitor is contributing to the project which will run until the end of 2023.
