A livable city – safe, practical and social for all.
Many cities have a long history. Our home town was developed at a time when there were more carriages than cars on the streets. Today, Berlin has more than 3.66 million inhabitants and counting. Although the capital of Germany is no mega-city, we are experiencing all the issues that affect major cities worldwide.

Cities around the globe are growing
Every second person is living in a city today. Soon, it will be three out of four people in the world. Cities are enormous and so are their disadvantages. There is too much traffic, too much noise, too many offices, too much waste, too much stress. At the same time, there is not enough fresh air, not enough security, not enough room for pedestrians and children, not enough shops and not enough green spaces.
Quality of life
Everyone needs it
When you are developing the city of the future today, everything boils down to one question: How can we improve the quality of life in our city’s neighborhoods? How can a city be open to everyone and support social interaction instead of anonymous housing while inviting to more participation and eliminating crime at the same time?
Urban neighborhoods are our home
Our answer: by giving city planners and project developers, city councils and neighborhood managers more information about residents’ journeys and needs. Because data is an important source of ideas for designing a city full of life. Local data that captures how people move through the city center, what they do there and how long they stay.
Designing city life
Lively streets and squares used by all generations are the best sign of a livable city. In order to rethink and revitalize a city and its existing infrastructure, to make it green and relaxing, to attract trade and service providers and to develop sustainable mobility, we need to understand how it currently works: What do people do in the streets and squares? How long do they dwell there?
As your partner for public life studies, we measure and analyze people flows. Based on the data, decision makers in institutions as well as urban planners and project developers can define and implement measures and key topics to revitalize neighborhoods.
The better city
From people for people
The results can not only be measured in data but can also be seen and felt by everyone. The young, the old and everyone in between spend more time on streets and squares when they are beautiful spaces and it feels good to meet up in the neighborhood. These are the cities we want to live in. These are the tasks we at DILAX support with our technology and expertise. #forbettercities
