  • Cyber‐Physical Vulnerabilities of Wireless Sensor Networks in Smart Cities

    Smart cities are the future cities that meet a set of technical and nontechnical criteria. It is obvious that smart cities require extensive implementation of information and communication technologies (ICTs). In particular, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have big roles to play to support smart city operations. It requires large‐scale deployments of WSNs around the city for sensing numerous events. A massive amount of information will then be collected from those WSNs for analyses and decision‐making. The most challenging part is to secure information from various forms of attacks. Detection and prevention procedures in response to cyber‐physical attacks are resource intensive. This chapter provides a tutorial overview of some specialized WSN applications and their cyber‐physical vulnerabilities in the context of smart cities. It also includes a discussion on possible mitigation approaches.

  • Data‐Driven Modeling, Control, and Tools for Smart Cities

    This chapter first presents a method called demand response‐advisor (DR‐Advisor), which acts as a recommender system for the building's facilities manager and provides the power consumption prediction and control actions for meeting the required load curtailment and maximizing the economic reward. Using historical meter and weather data along with set point and schedule information, DR‐Advisor builds a family of interpretable regression trees to learn non parametric data‐driven models for predicting the power consumption of the building. The chapter also presents how data‐driven algorithms can be used for the problems associated with DR and a new algorithm to perform control with regression trees for synthesizing DR strategies. It then describes the MATLAB‐based DR‐Advisor toolbox and provides a comprehensive case study with DR‐Advisor using data from several real buildings. Finally, it summarizes the authors' results and a discussion about future directions.

  • Smart Lighting

    This chapter discusses the concept of smart lighting in smart cities, its development, and its applications. The development of smart lighting technique consists of two stages. The first stage is that the conventional bulbs are replaced by the new technology, light‐emitting diodes (LEDs). The second stage of development of smart lighting is the lighting control algorithm. Adaptive lighting control solutions are the aims for this stage to make smart lighting system have higher performance efficiency, satisfy users' illumination requirements, and provide wireless network connections. Smart lighting technique is one of the most significant branches in smart cities, which can be used in many aspects such as dimmable outdoor environment lighting, vehicle safety, indoor illumination and communications, smart lighting positioning, and so on. The chapter also introduces indoor smart lighting communication principles, power allocation algorithms, and practice considerations. It further defines smart lighting system as a combination system, which includes illumination, safety alarm, positioning, and communication.

  • Clustering and Fuzzy Reasoning as Data Mining Methods for the Development of Retrofit Strategies for Building Stocks

    This chapter discusses the application of hierarchical agglomerative clustering and fuzzy reasoning as data mining methods for the building stock management and strategic planning. It familiarizes the reader with data mining methods for the development of effective retrofit strategies for a building stock, including energy efficiency measures (EEMs) and automated network identification (ANI) for smart energy networks. Applied data mining methods identify groups of buildings for exactly defined purposes, that is, to find buildings that react similarly to retrofitting measures. This allows for the development of intelligent systemic strategies instead of isolated approaches to individual buildings. The chapter also identifies the benefits and methodological differences between sparse information approaches, that is, the type‐age classification, and novel approaches based on information available from building catalogs and databases, measurements, as well as data mining methods in smart city contexts.

  • Cyber Security of Smart Buildings

    This chapter introduces the cyber security of smart buildings and their most relevant communication protocols. We explain the fundamentals of a smart building, including their technical components, a brief analysis of their historical developments, the role of smart buildings in smart cities, and known attack cases on smart buildings. Afterward, we explain the predominant communication protocols of smart buildings and their security features. The succeeding section covers technical aspects of attacks on smart building infrastructure, the implications of such attacks, and reasons for insecure buildings. After these problems were analyzed, solutions for the protection of automated buildings are discussed. Finally, we cover recent trends in smart building security research and conclude.

  • SMART CITY ARCHITECTURE AND PLANNING

    It is essential to consider data at all scales: the human, the building, and the urban levels to truly adapt how architects design buildings of the future to be part of a holistic, sustainable urban system. With a growing emphasis on life cycle analysis or assessments at the building level, design decisions are often evaluated by the up‐front impact of manufacturing through the full use of the material or component as a way to understand the impact of building design and to assess sustainability. Several measures have been created‐such as the US Green Building Council (USGBC) and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program‐to help architects and building owners evaluate their buildings. The Internet of Things (IoT) or Internet of everything: the communication of a broad array of sensors in the built environment creates new opportunity for architectural design that will create truly smarter buildings and better, more sustainable and resilient cities.

  • Bringing Named Data Networks into Smart Cities

    This chapter describes the recently proposed Future Internet architectures followed by insight and discussion on named data networking (NDN). It also describes the possible applicability of NDN in smart cities and its potentials. To date, Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) proposed a promising Future Internet architecture named as CCN. The NDN is providing its part to further enhance CCN project and is funded by the US Future Internet Architecture program. The chapter also summarizes the current advancements in the field of CNN and named data networks that are relevant to the smart cities. CCN claims and focuses on securing the content using public key encryption rather than the connection, which means that it promises that the content is same as it asserts. Finally, the chapter provides variant application scenarios for NDN‐enabled smart cities and future research road map for researchers.
