framework for unique test bed
Together with the city of Gothenburg, Visual Arena is preparing to develop a unique test bed linked to the city’s digital information, with the goal of identifying needs, making data and technology available and developing and testing new applications that contribute to solutions to societal challenges.
The test bed, under the working name “Virtual Gothenburg Lab,” will take the form of an advanced virtual model of the city, where data from different operators within the City of Gothenburg can be connected and tested, thereby increasing the chances of making well-founded decisions.
Combining different types of data and developing new visualization methods will increase the possibilities of experiencing and discovering social challenges, thereby facilitating the work with solutions.
The “Virtual Gothenburg Lab” test bed will be one part in developing and stimulating the City of Gothenburg’s work with testing new solutions and thus strengthening the innovative ability for both local and global sustainable development.
Participants in the pilot project are the City of Gothenburg, Business Region Göteborg, RISE, Chalmers, IQ Samhällsbyggnad, Recorded Future, Lindholmen Science Park and the County Administrative Board. More operators will be engaged as the work progresses. The project is financed by Vinnova.
