Transforming urban planning towards more sustainable cities would reduce GHG emissions by 26% by 2030

To achieve this, actions must be taken at the base of decision-making, including through data.

An increasingly urban population has led to an exciting revolution in the demand for urban logistics, new mobility uses, and climate oriented policies. Yet, the lack of efficient solutions to address these new challenges will make problems even worse.

Founded in 2019 and with a presence in both France and Silicon Valley, Urban Radar has a clear goal : merge sectorial and technology expertise to offer the leading data solutions for smart city stakeholders.


A new kind of urban and transportation planning is changing how city managers and politicians deliver their commitments to communities : they can now plan with today’s transportation data. It’s cheaper, more precise and more impactful.
