On the 16th of November, SIM-CI co-hosted an event at the WTC, to strengthen the relations between The Hague and Eindhoven. During the Captain’s Dinner, Igor van Gemert, CEO & Founder of SIM-CI, took the guests into the virtual world of Smart Cities. Our VR-simulation platform, which was showcased at the event, is used to identify risks in networks and to take timely measures to prevent failure or damage. This makes it possible to identify vulnerabilities and predict impact on assets.

“Networks for gas, water, electricity, data and telecom are now connected to each other. A holistic view of what is going on and what can happen is crucial, because in our society we are increasingly dependent on a flawless operation of the infrastructure.”
