ODCI

Improving City Bicycle Infrastructure with Open Data

ODCI is a plattform based tool, with which citizens and city administration can both improve the infrastructure for bicycle traffic.

Problem

Amount of Data

Every day, the amount of data collected is growing rapidly, some of which is made freely available. The ODCI system is an approach to make these data usable in order to improve the urban infrastructure. This is done using the example of bicycle traffic in cities. The system is designed for the city administration and the citizens of a city who provide and use open data in equal measure.

Ideation

Three different approaches

ODCI is a plattform based tool, with which citizens and city administration can both improve the infrastructure for bicycle traffic.

Final Concept

Plattform

On the online platform, citizens have the opportunity to inform themselves about current data on cycling traffic such as traffic flows or current construction work on cycle paths, and to select their own routes according to criteria. such as safety or avoidance of car traffic. The municipal authorities can make entries on the platform about current events such as the construction of new cycle paths or winter maintenance.

App

In addition to the platform, there is a smartphone app for mobile use of the routing function that can be used to plan routes on the move.

Navigation Device

With the application or the platform the desired route can be sent to a navigation device which can be attached to the bicycle. This navigates the user to the desired destination and warns him of potential accident sites.
