How can we help?
The concept of the smart city emerged at the beginning of the 21st century as a fusion of ideas about how information and communication technologies can improve the functioning of cities, enhancing their efficiency, increasing their competitiveness, facilitating the transition towards more sustainable development paths, and improving quality of life.
Central to the smart city concept is the idea of analysing the increasingly large data streams generated by digital technologies to inform decision making. The convergence of big data and urban modelling — sometimes included under the umbrella term urban analytics — opens up new possibilities to monitor, understand and predict the evolution of urban settings and to better plan and manage our cities.
Nommon works together with municipal authorities and private sector organisations to provide them with urban analytics solutions, such as Mobility Insights and Population Insights, that help them understand urban dynamics and make more informed decisions, from long-term planning (e.g., investments in new urban infrastructure, optimisation of facility location) through real-time monitoring and control (e.g., traffic, air quality, energy, water and waste). We also provide decision support tools for the design of smart public transport services (Transit Insights, WiseTransit) and emergent mobility solutions (WiseRide).
