This project leverages real-time traffic data to provide added-value services in the fields of adaptive lighting, traffic optimisation, and public safety. Schréder and SixSq have developed the Volumlight solution, which optimises street lighting based on traffic volume. The proposal is to use the street lighting infrastructure already in play for Volumlight as a platform to host a variety of additional applications, and at the same time leverage from data available in the SynchroniCity framework. For this project, the data-driven adaptive lighting solution has been deployed in two large European cities, Antwerp and Porto.
SynchroniCity opens a global IoT market for cities and businesses. They develop shared digital services to improve the lives of citizens and to grow local economies
Apart from the hands-on demonstrations, this event will be targeting interested stakeholders who'd like to learn more about the solution and its benefits.
The aim of this event is to support the exploitation of the Volumlight solution within the SynchroniCity project. Experts in edge computing software and lighting will present the solution and demonstrate the existing deployment in the city of Antwerp, via informative and hands-on sessions.
The invited stakeholders will have the chance to share their business use case and challenges that need solving, hoping that by the end of the workshop, the provided information can help them move forward and potentially give room for an expansion and/or adaption of the existing solution.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
By tram:At a walking distance from Antwerp's train station you'll find the tram stop for lines 8 and 10 (Antwerpen Astrid Metro). Get off at Antwerpen Bestorming and walk for ~3min to get to the venue.
By taxi:The building is located next to the road and is accessible by car. Ask the driver to drop you at the venue address. From the Brussels airport it takes ~30min to arrive (depending on the traffic) and it costs ~110 euros. From the Antwerp Central train station it is a short 2.8km ride which should take less than 10min.
By car:There are private and public parking places nearby, including a dedicated parking for which the attendee should ask access to in advance (by contacting the organizers below)
