The smart city of the future – Cologne launches the “Smart Bicycle Traffic Challenge”

There’s a parade and the whole city centre is one big traffic jam? A overflowing underpass and no way through? Pop-up building sites adding unexpected detours? No problem for the smart city of the future: the "Smart Mobility Platform" provides real-time information. This is the vision of one Portuguese company. The EU is supporting the project. Cologne is the test site. At the heart of it all: Bike Citizens’ expertise and bike navigation app!
