Interactive Smart Screens for the Fondation Beyeler

The municipality of Riehen is moving with the times and has started using smart screens for its digital communication this year. In addition to community publications and location data, the info screens also offer an attractive platform for cultural activities.

As part of, Nerves was tasked to develop a cityDISPLAY module which allows for the easy integration of external content (like event calendars, map data, or public transit connections), as well as a user-friendly content management system that allows for additional features such as digital posters and advertising. The module can be configured and tailored as needed, and can provide different flavors of the frontend depending on where the screen is physically located.

A simulated version of the touch screen can be tested here. The physical screens, built by BURRI public elements, can be found in Riehen, Basel.
