The Micro-Hub at Te-Damm
The new urban logistics solution
In cooperation with the district of Tempelhof-Schöneberg, a new solution in the area of networking on the logistical last mile has been available since October 2020 - the Micro-Hub Te-Damm. In the course of sustainable urban area development, the Micro-Hub, which is partly funded by the BMVI, serves as a central storage and distribution location. Cargo bikes, which are used for the delivery of goods, are specifically designed to avoid emissions in freight transport, especially by stopping in the second row.
Stations as a places
Stations function as a focal point for urban living
To create appealing locations in the heart of our towns and cities, Smart City | DB aims to enhance the attractiveness of stations further. Safety and cleanliness are essential if a space is to guarantee quality of experience. Smart City | DB's goal is to generate a positive atmosphere. This entails the use of appropriate colour schemes, lighting and furnishings, and it also includes plans for greenery at stations.
Alongside the enhanced appeal of these sites, the project also focuses on developing and implementing new usage concepts such as coworking, smart lockers and multi-use pop-up spaces. Together, these can turn stations into places that are at the heart of our urban lives.
Urban Analytics - from gut feeling to a well-founded decision
Development of new and strategic potentials
Urban Analytics put the finishing touch to the Smart City | DB portfolio. Based on location, mobility and logistics data, the potential of new products is estimated and suitable locations and service areas are identified and evaluated. The results help to plan and develop our portfolio in line with requirements. Based on the analyses, cities can be intensively advised and an integration into existing urban structures can be ensured.
