OUR WORK

At DOLL we fill a gap in the innovation chain by bringing public and private actors together on a neutral ground, where they can test,  showcase and be inspired by cutting edge technology in a “one stop shop” with all relevant network infrastructures present across our 400 acre living lab.

As the development of “Internet of Things” continues to accelerate, with a predicted 125 billion devices connected by 2030, we aim to make full use of this potential by not only facilitating communication and knowledge sharing between public decision makers and the market, but also collaboration and system integration between individual manufactures and their technical solutions.

DIGITAL INFRASTRUCTURE

By 2030, the number of Internet-enabled devices is expected to exceed 125 billion – there are already far many more devices online than there are people on the planet.
In the future, many of these devices will be located in urban areas, where they will contribute to better services for citizens in regards to light, waste management and traffic flow.
Right now many of the new devices differ broadly in terms of network infrastructure and capabilities, so at DOLL we are testing a wide range of networking solutions, from LoRaWAN to lightning fast 5G.

INTELLIGENT OUTDOOR LIGHTING

LED technology and intelligent light management have the potential to cut 80% of the resource consumption of traditional outdoor lighting.
This technological development also highlights the possibility for light to be used more effectively as a means of creating security and raising our overall experience of the urban space: for example, light that adjusts to different needs and levels of activity. At the same time, street lighting infrastructure also shows great potential to support various network and sensor technologies.
The testing and demonstration of LED-based outdoor lighting is therefore an essential part of DOLL Living Lab, where more than 80 solutions are tested side-by-side.

ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING

At DOLL we measure precipitation, temperature, noise and particulate pollution in real time. Measuring in real time offers completely new possibilities for adapting activities to the current conditions, for example by directing traffic away from cloudy areas or adjusting snow clearance and salt distribution to match the current road temperature.
The real-time measurement of particulate pollution and noise, for example, can provide valuable information on how we can best organize our infrastructure. This benefits both individual citizens and society as a whole.

WASTE MANAGEMENT

In Denmark alone, approximately 11 million tons of waste are produced annually. Waste collection costs time, money and resources, so at DOLL we test digital sensor-based solutions, where collection takes place as and when needed, rather than on fixed schedules.
Imagine a future where waste containers can tell when it’s time to be emptied and intelligent systems plan the most optimal collection routes – routes that may even take into account the current traffic situation.
Visit DOLL and experience the future of waste management today.

PARKING & MOBILITY

At DOLL we test several different solutions for dynamic traffic detection.
A considerable portion of road traffic in the world’s major cities is made up of drivers searching for parking spots. This creates unnecessary congestion, is waste of resources and also contributes to air pollution. At DOLL we test several different solutions for intelligent parking guidance and detection – both in traditional parking bays and along the curb.
The development of self-driven cars is also gaining momentum and in rural areas there is particularly great potential for autonomous public transport. Therefore, self-driven buses with app-based dynamic routing will also become a regular part of the street scene at DOLL from 2019.
