Start date: 5. October 2022
End date: 6. October 2022
Time: 10:00 - 16:00
Location: Fraunhofer-Institutszentrum Stuttgart
4th Forum Urban Data

Many cities and municipalities are currently moving forward towards digitalisation and transformation into community-oriented smart cities. The core challenge is to collect the data and manage it for strategic use in urban development. At the same time, a number of unresolved questions still need to be answered around the topics of data governance, data quality, data sovereignty, and law, which currently prevent an efficient and cross-organisational use of the data treasures.

The 4th Forum »Urban Data« offers participants insights into data science and data-oriented smart cities and gives an overview of urban data governance as a solution concept. In addition to expert presentations, the agenda includes practical exercises based on case studies as well as space for exchanging experiences.

Martin Montag, Head of Sales Public Sector, will participate and give a keynote speech.

Time: 0:00 - 0:00

VDI Workshop

Die Nutzung von Sensorsystemen zur Messung der Luftqualität nimmt in den letzten Jahren stetig zu und umfasst mittlerweile viele verschiedene Anwendungsbereiche. Die zunehmende Zahl an Sensorsystemen stellt die Anwender vor neue Herausforderungen, insbesondere hinsichtlich der Auswertung, Beurteilung und Qualität der gewonnenen Messdaten.
Vor diesem Hintergrund wurde bereits im Jahr 2018 ein erster VDI Workshop „Sensormesstechnik für die Außenluft – Status, Grenzen und Visionen“ durchgeführt. Der zweite Workshop schließt an die erste Veranstaltung an. Im Gegensatz zur Veranstaltung in 2018 ist er nicht auf die Experten der KRdL beschränkt und bietet, einer Empfehlung des ersten Workshops folgend, ein Forum für den Informationsaustausch aller interessierter Fachkreise.

Frank Felten, Chief Product Officer von Hawa Dawa, wird hier einen Vortrag zum Thema “Air Quality Monitoring in Mainz – Entwicklung der Messgenauigkeit vor dem Hintergrund verschiedener Anwendungsinteressen” beitragen.
