The City of Delft, a knowledge economy, offers the physical space and organisational support for innovations to be tested under realistic conditions: they provide the opportunity for Living Labs to take place.
Since 2000 the City of Delft has been continuously, and automatically, counting traffic in the city. There are already more than 120 counting points spread over 40 controlled intersections. Delft has for some time been a leader in this field and is using the figures to monitor traffic flows and calibrate transportation models. But, Delft is going further in developing this field of expertise.
