Tessa Steenkamp presents design experiment at Dutch Design Week

During the upcoming Dutch Design Week, CivicIxD Researcher Tessa Steenkamp will be presenting the experiment The Camera Car Fair / The Fair Camera Car. What does the camera car in your city see, that you can’t see? Come explore the journey its data travel, and how they are used.

Most Dutch cities have a camera car (or: ‘scan car’) driving around. This is a car with box full of cameras on its roof. Through image recognition algorithms, it reads licence plates and hands out parking fines. During an experiment set up in a fun-fair-setting, we show what else the car can do.

Check out Tessa’s experiment from October 21st – 29th, at the Strijp-S area, Foundation We Are, Torenallee 22-04, in Eindhoven.

The experiment was produced in collaboration with The Incredible Machine and is part of our research project ‘Human Values for Smarter Cities”, which explores the design of understandable machine-vision systems in public spaces. Partners of the project include: AMS InstituteDelft University of TechnologyWaag FuturelabCity of Amsterdam (CTO office), City of RotterdamARVOO Imaging Products BV, Tapp (Tom van Arman), ThingsConMedia Architecture Biennale.
