The Fraunhofer IoT-Living Lab for medium-sized towns
The city as an experience lab for digitization
Intelligent Networking creates added value for the city
Shaping our future through citizen engagement
Together we make LEMGO DIGITAL.
How can the Internet of Things (IoT) make our daily life easier or more safe?
Smart City projects around the world are addressing this issue. However, these are very strongly focused on megacities. But even small and medium-sized cities can benefit from intelligent, digital solutions! And with intelligent technical systems we are very familiar in the Ostwestfalen-Lippe (OWL) region. Therefore, the Fraunhofer IOSB-INA is implementing the IoT Living Lab »LEMGO DIGITAL« at its home location as an open innovation infrastructure for medium-sized cities. The Fraunhofer scientists are supported by the Technische Hochschule Ostwestfalen-Lippe and other partners as well as by the state of NRW. This infrastructure will be used by companies, IoT startups, municipalities and research institutes to work together with citizens to design new products and data-based services in the areas of mobility, environment, trade and energy. The Old Hanseatic City of Lemgo can serve as as blueprint for more than 180 medium-sized cities in North Rhine-Westphalia, where half of all people of the most populous state in germany live.
