The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers defines a smart city as a city that brings together technology, government and society to enable the following characteristics: smart economy, smart mobility, smart environment, smart people, smart living, and smart governance1. This and other definitions for smart cities emphasize the need for interoperability between systems. Interoperabilty between systems is highly influenced by the ability of sharing and exchanging data across different tools and platforms. Living labs aim to support an agile development and implementation of technology to accelerate innovation in cities . The University of Guadalajara (UDG) Living Lab aims to provide fast prototyping of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, open data repositories based in open standards, data analytics and visualization tools to support the development of smart cities solutions. UDG Living Lab was designed with the following principles: scalability, interoperability, modularity, resilience, and security . In this paper, we describe our initial efforts in annotating and sharing data generated by the UDG Living Lab for its reuse in Smart Cities applications. This work is part of the activities of the International Interdisciplinary Consortium for Smart Cities created in 2015 by researchers at The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP, US), Universidad de Guadalajara (UDG, Mexico), and Czech Technical University (CTU, Czech Republic) .
Nowadays, Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) provide new monitoring capabilities useful in the different dimensions of Smart Cities to gather information in environment, healthcare, transport, logistics and security applications. However, wireless communication frequently requires a high power consumption which reduces the autonomy of the system. In this paper, we propose the implementation of a WSN using low-power devices for the transceiver process. This system combines sensing and data storage in a compact device with low power consumption. One device is a wireless node sensor, and the other device consists in a data storage component. The wireless network made a connection by multichannel RF communication operating at 315, 433, 868, and 915 MHz, Data storage device used a Real Time Clock (RTC) and external memory (EEPROM) to register sensor measurements. Overall system lets improve the data management using both, storage and transmission data.
In today Smart Cities, the automation strategy based on massive IoT devices deployment to gather Big Data to get insights into city behavior to improve its services. The Smart IoT devices interconnected to the Cyberinfrastructure in a Smart City can be exposed to security threats. To overcome failures and Cyberinfrastructure hacker’s attacks, surveillance systems to monitor every citizen activity, compromise their privacy rights. We propose in this paper a use case where Blockchain is a promise to conciliate security versus privacy. Moreover, we discuss how we can start implementing a control access system integrating Blockchain, and we discuss benefits and challenges briefly.
Pursuing innovative projects for the development of Smart Cities requires collaborative efforts from members of the triple helix (government, industry and academia). Developing Smart Cities solutions faces the challenge of validating prototypes with respect to the following criteria: scalability, interoperability, modularity, resiliency, and security. The first Living Lab for Smart Cities at the University of Guadalajara aims to provide a test bed for the verification and validation of Smart City solutions with a focus on IT core technologies. Smart City indicators aim to provide metrics that evaluate the performance of a city from a specific perspective (e.g., mobility). Living Labs are designed to facilitate the generation of such metrics at the development phase. In this paper, we present our experience on implementing a test bed with scalable architecture for testing multiple solutions. We also describe our current efforts towards creating an international network for Living Labs through an interdisciplinary consortium of academia and industry for Smart Cities.
People suffering from mild cognitive impairments and early stages of dementia may notice a deterioration in their memory functions. Consequently, disorientation or wanderinglike behaviours might occur in their daily activities. Detecting wandering in trajectories is a complex task highly influenced by the technology/ies used and the context in which people move. Hence, there is no commonly accepted technique to detect wandering automatically. Since technology is a key factor, Smart Cities can open the door to new opportunities to approach the problem. In this article, we briefly summarise the state of the art of wandering detection techniques, we describe some of the benefits that Smart Cities will contribute with, and we provide a preliminary proposal of a new wandering detection method.
The subject of this article is analysis of the methods of Earth Observing in Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and Smart Cities and technical characteristics of satellite data. The first part of this article presents the analysis of satellite images of the Earth's surface illumination in villages, towns and cities, selected parts of transport infrastructure, which allows monitoring the extent, intensity and quality of illumination in larger areas and then evaluating the impact of illumination on the traffic safety. The advanced processing of satellite images shall allow identification of problem areas and monitoring poor illumination within larger areas. The second part of the article analyzes possibilities of application of methods of Earth Observing by using acquired satellite information combined with ground-based data sources. Processing of all available information and data available shall allow designing of new applications in the framework of the concept of Smart Cities.
This paper discusses our experiences teaching energy and smart cities concepts as multidisciplinary College of Engineering alternatives to more traditional science courses taught within the framework of a College of Arts and Sciences. This model scales without the limitations associated with most university level courses. The first of these courses has proven to be very popular with our nontechnical students, experiencing tremendous growth over three years. Additionally, the practice that our teaching assistants gain from interacting with their less technical peers has significantly enhanced their communications skillset.
Systems applied in the last few years for an improvement of the operation of tools ensuring the most critical functions in large cities must provide their functions exploiting various methods from the area of advanced informatics and system theory. One of the most important of them is the prediction diagnostics being a tool allowing how long particular system (or the whole smart cities system alliance) can still operate well, or when it approaches to the end of such reliable state. In this contribution the possibilities of prediction diagnostic apparatus are discussed as well as limitations coming from the fact that these systems must be very often considered as uncertain, especially if they interact with human factor.
A smart city is characterized by its ability to integrate people, technology and information to create a sustainable and resilient infrastructure that provides high quality services for residents. Transforming a city into a smart city requires collaborative efforts between government, industry, practitioners, residents and researchers. This paper describes how researchers in a recently formed consortium of three universities are developing a smart cities innovation network, with an emphasis on smart mobility, smart buildings, and smart bridges. The consortium is applying a semantic-based approach to address the initial challenge of building an effective interdisciplinary network of university researchers located in different parts of the world, in three cities with different sizes and stages of economic development.
This paper deals with problems which are characteristic for almost all the Smart Cities systems, namely for those which are operating in significant time dynamics (or in other independent variable). These systems which main aim is to improve the level of life of city population and prolong its live are in their functions dominantly uncertain. Such situations are typical especially for city transportation systems, however also many others systems suffer of the uncertainty factors. In this paper, besides the typical uncertainty factors which are characteristic for majority of systems operating in modern smart cities, also the typical negative impacts influencing their properties and possibilities of their efficient cooperation are discussed. Some approaches for minimization of these drawbacks are outlined here.
