Summary: Triangulum Webinar

The third public webinar in our series of Triangulum webinars has taken place on 14 May at 10 AM (CEST). Whereas last year’s webinar series was centered around topics from within our Lighthouse Cities, such as urban biking or data platforms, the 2019 series focuses on the needs of our Follower Cities Prague, Sabadell and Leipzig. We specifically asked them “What are you interested in?” and “Where do you need some more input?” and the answers were quite clear!

Prague decided for a consortium-internal webinar at the end of March 2019 where they gathered the majority of Triangulum partners in a virtual webinar room to discuss some very specific topics. The results of these “secret” discussions will be available soon – come back for more information in the coming months.

Getting back to Sabadell, they told us that they are interested in hearing more about green mobility, especially with respect to schools. So we got Mark Cox from the City of Eindhoven to talk about this topic and to talk about how biking is done in the Netherlands (Spoiler: it’s different! Children seem to learn how to ride a bike before they learn how to walk…). Moreover, Vin Sumner, the CEO of Clicks and Links, an SME that has been very actively involved in our Lighthouse City Manchester, talked about city visualisation technologies by referring to the many benefits of virtual reality and teaching us about how digital twins support city development. Finally, Adrian Slatcher from the Manchester City Council presented the topic of IoT – the Internet of Things, explaining what it is and why the human element plays a crucial role in anything IoT related.

If you are interested in seeing what virtual reality biking looks like or in finding out what a “digital twin” actually is, then watch the recording of our webinar in our webinar section.

Demonstration of Triangulum at the Sabadell High School “Institut Sabadell”

At the request of the Sabadell High School “Institut Sabadell”, around 100 students around 13 years-old received a presentation on Triangulum on 8 and 9 April. First, a general presentation on the Sabadell Follower City Implementation Strategy (FCIS) was given, describing the ten actions under implementation and the philosophy of replication from Lighthouse Cities.

Moreover, there was a focus on two of them that were more related to education centres: “Green mobility to schools” and “Maker spaces”. Students could give their view on how to improve green mobility to schools, making specific suggestions related to favouring the use of soft mobility means.

Finally, a live demonstration of a laser cutter machine was performed at the classroom which has been purchased by the municipality as part of Triangulum, and which is one of the main tools for “maker spaces”. On the second day, the students visited the municipal fleet of sustainable vehicles, also purchased as part of Triangulum, and were demonstrated the use of e-bikes, e-motorbikes and e-cars for the maintenance of public spaces of Sabadell, as well as for the use of the Municipal Police.
