Breakout Session: Planning for a smarter & safer city with movement data – The City of Oslo and Telia

The City of Oslo is no stranger to trying innovative ways to make the city smarter and more attractive to live in, work in and visit.

Together with Telia they have been working for almost a year in a project finding new ways to increase the safety in the city with the help of Telia Crowd Insights. Telia Crowd Insights is a service that analyses anonymized and aggregated mobile network data. The service is commonly used in urban and community planning to create more sustainable cities and more efficient travel. In this session representatives from both the municipality of Oslo and Telia will show you what they’ve found and how the pandemic changed the scope of the project a bit.

During the corona crisis, Telia Crowd Insights has gained a new scope. Telia’s anonymized data has enabled cities, municipalities and Public Health Authorities across the Nordic to understand how groups of people move in society, for example between municipalities and regions or within a city.

Crowd Insights is offered to municipalities and cities in a standardized package called Telia City Vitality Insights which will be demoed in the session for you to see how these kind of insights can benefit your municipality. Learn more here:
