About Breda

Daan Quaars Gemeente Breda
‘In Breda, we increasingly look at safety in an information-led way’

- Daan Quaars, Municipal Executive Councillor at Breda City Council -

Daan Quaars: ‘Society as a whole is digitalising more and more, and Breda too is getting savvier by the day. We make our processes more efficient with technology, for example by using sensors to gather objective measurements. Our ultimate goal is to increase liveability and safety in the city.’

‘Carrying out the fireworks policy by using sensors is only one of many applications of sound measuring. We also use sound measuring when there are events in the city. Sound measuring via LTE-M is used to map out the disturbances and keep tabs on permits. The diversity of this technical solution ensures that implementing such solutions is economically feasible.’
