  • 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.

  • Autonomous Radios and Open Spectrum in Smart Cities

    This chapter discusses the needs and challenges of future smart cities and the critical role wireless devices play in conveying the information needed to operate the smart cities. It shows that the open spectrum regime provides a compelling solution to the demands of having a connected city, that cognitive radio (CR) is the solution to exploit this free spectrum, and that the frequency envelope modulation (FEM) and network organization scheme provides a way for CRs to effectively form ad hoc networks in an efficient manner. Smart cities essentially require augmenting a city's existing infrastructure with an advanced command and control network to control the flow of resources. The issues relating to resource sharing have been studied extensively in the literature. At the physical (PHY) and medium access control (MAC) layers, spectrum sensing, spectrum handoff, and spectrum management are fundamental issues.

  • Sustainability in Smart Cities: Balancing Social, Economic, Environmental, and Institutional Aspects of Urban Life

    This chapter first introduces the concept of sustainability and its dimensions, and then focuses on the assessment of sustainability, its current practices, and the existing limitations and shortcomings. It also provides a complete list of smart cities' definitions from perspective of various stakeholders. The chapter further discusses how the concept of sustainability has been adopted and integrated in such definitions, and how smart cities can help in improving limitations in sustainability assessment. The initial definitional focus of the concept of smart cities was on the significance of ICT with regard to modern infrastructures within cities. Later, some experts criticized such definitions as being too technically oriented and suggested to add a strong governance‐oriented approach that emphasizes the role of social capital and governance into this conceptual framework. Finally, the chapter defines a smart city as a city where information and communication technology (ICT) is used to achieve a balanced and intergenerational sustainability in urban life.

  • Smart Cities and the Symbiotic Relationship between Smart Governance and Citizen Engagement

    This chapter recognizes that cities are at the forefront of innovation and are increasingly competing for scarce resources. It suggests that for smart cities to succeed they must facilitate human connection. This can be achieved through smart governance, circumspect implementation of the tenants of smart cities, along with human‐centered planning and design. The daily experiences of a city's population represent an often‐untapped source of knowledge about how the city could be improved. Tapping into this knowledge base is essential for smart governance. The symbiotic relationship between citizen engagement and smart governance is explored through a case study on Somerville, Massachusetts. Somerville, Massachusetts, exemplifies the possibility of municipal leadership and urban innovation. Citizen engagement insures that hyperlocal insights can be leveraged to inform the system and identify leverage points for community improvements and growth. Smart governance is needed to facilitate this fine‐grained engagement and to maximize the use of smart cities technology.

  • 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.

  • Environmental‐Assisted Vehicular Data in Smart Cities

    This chapter discusses the concept of location proof for vehicular trajectory data in smart cities. Compared to location‐based services or mobile social networks, the moving trajectories of vehicles within a region are more predicable due to traffic restrictions. Regarding the aspects of security and privacy, this unique feature makes the construction of verifiable vehicular data indexes become cheaper than that of a series of location proofs in a mobile social network, which is strongly dependent on the cryptographic keys among different participants. The chapter also presents a detailed framework by using the wireless signals from roadside units (RSUs) to generate the location proof. It then discusses the use of environmental factors to develop "evidence of presence" for the intelligent vehicle system. It further considers how to use the measured wireless signal from RSUs to verify and index data, and also discusses the optimal RSU placement problem and the location‐time synchronization problem among RSUs.

  • Managing the Cyber Security Life‐Cycle of Smart Cities

    This chapter considers the key services of smart city: smart transportation, smart grid, smart water management, and smart healthcare. Smart city functionalities are enabled by a wide variety of technologies across different service sectors. The chapter discusses some of the important and widely used ones. It deals with cyber security and privacy issues associated with different services of smart city. The chapter also discusses the different phases of cyber security and privacy management life cycle. It further proposes a life‐cycle approach to manage the various phases of cyber security of smart cities. Risk assessment is performed to identify and comprehend the risks that can potentially breach the cyber security of the smart city. The process of developing and deploying a proper cyber security program for a smart city is a continual process of analysis, design, implementation, monitoring, and adaptation to changing needs.

  • Cyber–Physical Systems in Smart Cities – Mastering Technological, Economic, and Social Challenges

    The "smart city" notion has become synonymous with visions of future urban development, which is marked by the widespread digitization of services. A major objective of smart cities is to achieve triple sustainability in social, economic, and environmental issues. This chapter intends to broaden the conceptual and analytical views, as is required for effective policy making, by employing the perspectives of economic geography to cyber‐physical system (CPS)‐supported smart city development. It then highlights social challenges of CPS‐based smart city development that relate to aspects of acceptability, qualification, and adaptation. The chapter further explores how visions of smart city developments could potentially profit from using CPS applications in order to enhance system efficiency. Finally, it explains how the process fields of CPS‐enhanced smart city formation are embedded in wider economic contexts on a regional, national, and global scale, and it also raises issues of social acceptability.

  • Mobile Crowd‐Sensing for Smart Cities

    This chapter reviews the literature of mobile crowd‐sensing (MCS) for smart cities is reviewed thoroughly including motivation, possible applications, and issues that are key to successful deployment of such services. It discusses the challenges of crowd‐sensing in the context of smart city followed by a brief overview of existing frameworks. The chapter also discusses the issues regarding task assignment, user profiling and trustworthiness, design of incentive mechanisms, localized analytics, and security and privacy. While crowd‐sourcing is aimed to utilize collective intelligence of the crowd to solve complex tasks by breaking them down to smaller tasks, crowd‐sensing splits the responsibility of gathering correct information to the crowd. Toward this, a geo‐social model of MCS is proposed. This model is based on a distributed architecture for task design, assessment, and execution. McSense is a framework that is also proposed for MCS. This framework talks about monetary or service incentives given to users.

  • Big Data Analytics Processes and Platforms Facilitating Smart Cities

    Information technology (IT), especially data analytics, along with a flexible and futuristic strategy is to play a very critical role in shaping up the sliding and sagging cities. This chapter discusses how big data analytics (BDA) serves immeasurably and immaculately for the faster realization and sustenance of next‐generation cities. It is designed for demystifying the hidden niceties and ingenuities of the raging BDA. Integrated big data platforms are essential in order to automate several tasks enshrined in the data capture, analysis, and knowledge discovery processes. New advancements in the form of predictive and prescriptive analytics are emerging fast with the maturity and stability of big data technologies, platforms, infrastructures, tools, and finally a cornucopia of sophisticated data mining and analysis algorithms. Thus, platforms need to be fitted with new features, functionalities, and facilities in order to provide next‐generation insights.
