BART! (Burger Alert Real Time) – 2013 to present

Currently TIGNL is moderating BART! (Citizens Alert Real Time) a quottro helix project of the National Police, The Hague Law Enforcement department, Ministry of Justice & Security and Ministry of Internal Affairs. Within BART! TIGNL is responsible for the co-creation process. In the year 2021 a digital collaborative system for citizens and city frontline professionals will be produced for creating a livable and safe living and working environment. BART! will be developed by using new digital solutions based on social media, artificial intelligence, algorithms, smart sensors, situational awareness, big data analysis, location-based technology, virtual reality, voicebots and IoT. TIGNL is member of the board of BART! and reports to chairman of the board.

In accordance with the project assignment responsible for:

BART! WP5: Competention development

BART! WP6: Ethics, Privacy & Data Protection

BART! WP7: Co-Creation, moderation and reporting project accounting to the BART! Board

Roadmap Connectivity 2025

TIGNL Project 2018 to the present

Project assignment is to develop the roadmap connectivity 2025 for governments, municipalities, public order and safety and health organizations. As more services are delivered digitally and more devices are connected to the internet (Internet of Things), our dependence on a well-functioning digital infrastructure grows. People want to be accessible anytime and anywhere and nowadays connectivity is a basic necessity. Connectivity is also crucial for companies and government institutions. They increasingly use the digital infrastructure for their services and internal business operations (such as cloud services and telecommuting), and attach increasing importance to their quality: no interruptions in the connection (continuity) and no delay in the transfer of data ( latency), for example. Certain sectors also have a growing need for connectivity for all kinds of new applications, such as e-health (remote monitoring), camera surveillance, data communication with and between drones (for example for precision farming) and self-driving cars. In addition, new applications are being developed for which it is not yet clear which connectivity is required. An example is Virtual Reality: a digital three-dimensional “reality” in which you can walk around, or with which you can simulate or practice all kinds of situations “lifelike”. 
A stakeholder’s demand analysis and the roadmap is in concept available up on request.

Quattro Helix Co-creation Circular Economy

TIGNL Project 2018 to present

Project assignment is to formulate the Quattro Helix Co-creation approach for the transformation of the linear economy into the circular economy. The transformation from a linear to a circular economy, with as little waste as possible, can be achieved by looking at how much we build, how we build, what materials we use, how we move, how we use energy, how much food we produce and to consume. This project maps out how you can achieve sustainable development goals with the right stakeholder involvement and formulation of value creations, business models, design principals and governance. A circular economy is only successful if it counteracts climate change and depletion of ecosystems and has a positive effect on our ecosystem instead. This means that natural capital must be preserved and strengthened. This can be done by using non-renewable resources with economy, and balancing the use of renewable resources within the limits of what our ecosystem can handle.

The following crucial points of interest contribute to this:
Dematerialization: Replacing as many products as possible with a service (product service systems);
Smart material choice: When material is needed, people choose materials that last a long time and processes that use little or renewable energy;
Facilitating ecosystems: Ecosystems are balanced by harvesting and returning nutrients in the right place.

Three types of business models that point in the direction of new, multiple value creation:
1. Platform business models: Connect capacity, need and accessibility in a smart way. In this way, things are offered as services that intensify utilization and mean less need for things.
2. Collective business models: The digitization trend is combined with the willingness to invest in one’s own neighborhood if that yields profit. This results, for example, in energy cooperatives or carpool platforms.
3. Circular business models: Be prepared by cooperating parties. By organizing a material smartly, the value is maintained between and by organizations.

Promising business models are;
1. Circular suppliers that provide renewable energy, biodegradable or fully recyclable material to prevent one-use materials.
2. Raw material collectors who recover useful raw materials from by-products or products at the end of their life cycle;
3. Life cycle extension, which ensures that products stay on the market longer through repairs and resale.
4. Sharing platforms where more effective use of products becomes possible by allowing shared use;
5. Product evaluation in valuable services, the use of products that lead to high positive value for the owner.

CSI The Hague 2009-2013

The CSI The Hague project was a triple helix innovation project in which SMEs, larger companies, knowledge institutions and the Netherlands Forensic Institute (NFI) worked closely together to develop new technologies for working at the crime scene (PD). The project has developed in detail artificial intelligence applications for the purpose of digitizing the PD for reconstruction purposes and offering new forms of training through simulation, augmented reality and serious gaming. CSI The Hague consortium consisted of the following organizations: E-Semble, Noldus, Chess, Eagle Vision, and Forensic Technical Solutions, Thales, Philips, Cap Gemini and TNO D&V, Amsterdam Medical Center, The Hague University of Applied Sciences and Delft University of Technology. The project was led by the management of the NFI.

The main objective of the project was to position the NFI as a leading international knowledge institute. In the role of innovation manager TIGNL has formed the CSI consortia and assisted the project reaching the value proposition and has TIGNL assisted the NFI with the international market development by presenting this very distinctive innovation project worldwide.

MultiPaV Beware 2006- 2010
ASIS international innovation award for security management

In this multidisciplinary Proactive Safety Management (MulitPav Beware) innovation project, it has been demonstrated that linking 3D virtual reality software to existing and more intelligent sensors (for example cameras) offers significant added value when designing security concepts. The coupling of the sensors and the virtual environment with intelligent analysis software showed that intelligent analysis of stored, historical sensor information offers the possibility to make predictions about the risk profile of the different zones within the business park.

MulitPav Beware consortium consisted of the following organizations: E-Semble, Chess, Interpolis NV, Observision, Repoint, Enai, TNO, The Hague University of Applied Sciences and Delft University of Technology. The project was an initiative of Trigion and led by the management of the Trigion. The TIGNL innovation manager, together with Ron Knaap from Trigion, has developed the innovation project plan and helped the consortia achieve the value proposition.
In 2009, the MultiPaV Beware project in Anaheim California received the ASIS international innovation award for security management.

The core objectives of the MultiPAV Project were:
o the application of an integral security concept in which the innovative hightech technologies and methods are brought together and validated:
o interconnected security sensors with built-in artificial intelligence (including cameras and data files)
o intelligent algorithm and analysis software to collect and analyze the data from these sensors centrally
o three-dimensional virtual environments of risk locations
o simulation technology for the visual design and analysis of a security concept in these virtual environments
o serious game application in which the direct users (camera operators in an emergency room) and indirect users (emergency services) of these sensors can test the effectiveness in multidisciplinary exercises
o protocols to be able to judge the risk profile of a location based on the information from the intelligent analysis software
