    1. The northern German city intends to increase the quality of top-down initiatives, boosting economic growth and reducing the burden of bureaucracy. Within the course of the project, Hamburg will gather citizen input on such topics as the most popular locations for new playgrounds, as well as the most desirable positions for the planting of new trees in public zones. Citizen’s choice for a tree or playground location made in a map should be automatically supported by the systems feedback function, where the citizen will get information about his or her choice based on the data provided by the system. The data (all available as open data on the transparency portal) for the feedback are, for example, noise mapping, solar potential mapping, current tree population, buildings, legally binding land-use plan, and cadastral parcels for the tree as well as green space, land-use zoning, existing playground locations, public transport network and stations, administrative units, inhabitants per unit for the playground location.

    1. In the eCulture Cloud, the digital cultural content of Hamburg will be stored in bundled form in the future. Among other things, this cloud offers the possibility of making (private) collections, libraries, image and video archives accessible to the public, even if they can not find a place in exhibitions of the institutions. The particular attractiveness of this project lies in the diversity of the collection contents. Because these are not only composed of historical documents, but also give deep insights into modern phenomena, such. B. in pop culture. In addition, it is not uncommon for creators themselves to start collecting collections or archives according to their personal needs

    1. CityScopes are interactive, digital city models that analyze urban relationships and simulate development scenarios.They typically consist of model tables and "data blocks" on which information is projected. In this way, complex city data can be illustrated simply and transparently for concrete tasks and experimentally carried out as "what if" scenarios. CityScopes are particularly suitable for group discussions and participation workshops in which both professionals as well as laymen can participate. Multifunctional relationships can be displayed and changed quickly, with CityScopes providing fast visual feedback on potential impacts.

    1. The CityScienceLab of HafenCity University Hamburg is exploring the transformation of cities in the context of digitization with partners from civil society, politics, business and science. It pursues a decidedly interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary perspective by linking technical issues with social and cultural developments (more under Team ). To make cities healthier, more liveable, and more efficient in the future, CityScienceLab uses urban data to develop new tools and digital city models (CityScopes). These new tools allow the visualization and simulation of complex urban developments and support urban actors in the decision-making process (more under Research and Teaching ).The city of Hamburg is the "Living Lab", in which urban change processes are comprehensively researched and developed right down to concrete applications. In addition, the CityScienceLab works in close cooperation with the City Science Group of the MIT Media Lab (Cambridge / USA).

    1. Start into the next Generation' is a project run by the Hamburg authority for schools and training. It was launched two years ago with the aim of improving learning outcomes by using technology in the classroom. Six pilot schools were selected to take part in the project with over 90 classes and 2,000 students involved. Each school was provided with a secure wireless network but was free to choose its pedagogical approach to using the technology. Students were asked to bring a laptop, tablet or phone to school (in 90% of cases they chose a smartphone). The schools were supported with training and with advice on legal and data protection issues (all parents were given a document to sign explaining what the devices would be used for). The Hamburg schools authority also provided a learning platform which gives access to digital materials and allows students to communicate, submit homework and complete self-assessments.

    1. e-Mo­bi­li­ty in the port Elec­tric ve­hi­cles are be­com­ing in­creas­ingly com­mon­place in road trans­port. We are also re­view­ing ways of ex­tend­ing e-Mo­bi­li­ty to pas­sen­ger and freight traf­fic in the har­bour area. We are there­fore press­ing ahead with charg­ing in­fra­struc­ture, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the op­er­a­tors of pub­lic charg­ing pil­lars. At the cruise ship ­ter­mi­nal, we plan to use pref­er­en­tial e-Ta­xis. In ad­di­tion, we are analysing the vi­a­bil­ity of e-Mo­bi­li­ty for our staff.

    2. Port Mo­ni­tor The con­trol room soft­ware, Port Mo­ni­tor, al­lows us to keep all the stake­hold­ers in the port of Ham­bur­g up-to-date. A va­ri­ety of in­for­ma­tio­n is cen­trally gath­ered and can also be ac­cessed re­motely, such as elec­tro­nic cards, ves­sel ­po­si­tio­ns, wa­ter level­ da­ta, berths, cur­rent con­struc­tion sites, planned dives and bridge heights and widths. Im­por­tant in­for­ma­tio­n is there­fore al­ways ac­ces­si­ble to all those in­volved on land and on the wa­ter.

    3. Vir­tu­al de­pot Truck jour­neys with empty con­tai­ners put an un­nec­es­sary strain on the en­vi­ron­ment. We have there­fore de­vel­oped the so-called vir­tua­l de­pot to op­ti­mise the move­ment of empty con­tai­ners be­tween pack­ing ­companies. The cloud-­ba­sed sys­tem in­forms par­tic­i­pat­ing op­er­a­tors which con­tai­ners are to be de­liv­ered back to the de­pot. The pack­ing com­pany then re­quests these di­rectly. The re­sult: no more un­nec­es­sary empty trips to the de­pot.

    4. Smar­t main­te­nance The in­fra­struc­ture in the port of Ham­bur­g is mon­i­tored us­ing mobi­le end de­vices, such as ta­blets or smart­pho­nes. When con­trolling roads, bridges and tracks, these de­vices au­to­ma­tically send mea­sure­ments to the down­stream IT sys­te­ms, where the da­ta is processed, stored and edited. The aim is to make the main­te­nance ­proces­ses more ef­fec­ti­ve and ef­fici­en­t and to im­prove the qua­li­ty of no­ti­fi­ca­tions.

    5. In­tel­li­gen­t rail­way point Fre­quently used points on the har­bour rail­way are fit­ted with sen­so­rs that trans­mit da­ta to a cen­tra­l IT sys­tem in real-time. They col­lect a va­ri­ety of data by mov­ing or pass­ing over the switch­ing points and thereby pro­vide in­for­ma­tion about the con­di­tion and wear of the es­sen­tial op­er­a­tional in­ter­sec­tions. The ben­e­fit: we can iden­tify main­te­nance work or re­pai­rs at an early stage, thereby avoid­ing down­time.

    6. Shore power from re­new­able en­er­gies Thanks to a land­side cruise liner power sup­ply sourced from re­newa­ble en­er­gi­es, we are sig­nif­i­cantly re­ducing the en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact in Ham­burg. These ocean-go­ing gi­ants are sup­plied with elec­tric­ity via a trans­former ­sta­ti­on and mo­bi­le trans­fer mech­a­nism at the Al­to­na cruise ship ­ter­mi­nal. The di­men­sio­ns of the land­side power plant are unique in Eu­ro­pe. We are cur­rently con­sid­er­ing us­ing sim­i­lar mo­dels in other ar­eas of the port in fu­ture.

    7. Nav­i­ga­tion in real-time  Thou­san­ds of trucks drive through the port of Ham­bur­g every day. To en­sure that the traf­fic flows ef­fici­ently, the HPA com­bines var­i­ous ser­vices and func­ti­ons. Any­one dri­ving around the port ben­e­fits from per­so­na­li­sed nav­i­ga­tion. As well as in­for­ma­tio­n about the traf­fic sit­u­a­tion in and around the port, they also have ac­cess to park­ing and in­fra­struc­ture ­in­for­ma­tio­n, clo­sures of the move­able bridges, as well as the lat­est in­for­ma­tion on im­por­tant op­er­a­tions.

    9. smart­PORT lo­gis­tics Thanks to in­tel­li­gen­t so­lu­tions for the flow of traf­fic and goods, the HPA is im­prov­ing the port's ef­fici­ency. smart­PORT lo­gis­tics com­bines eco­no­mic and eco­lo­gical as­pec­ts in three sub-sec­tors: traf­fic flows, in­fra­structure and the flow of goods. An in­ter­mo­da­l Port­Traf­fic cen­tre for sea, rail and road trans­port forms the ba­sis for net­work­ing the flow of traf­fic. In­tel­li­gen­t net­work­ing is a pre­req­ui­site for smooth, ef­fici­en­t trans­port in the port of Ham­bur­g and ul­ti­mately for the flow of goods: op­ti­mum da­ta cap­ture and rapid in­for­ma­ti­on shar­ing al­low lo­gis­tics man­agers, car­ri­ers and agen­ts to se­lect the most efficien­t means of trans­port for their goods.
