Smart Cities 2.0: What Works Today

Session Description

Let's imagine a modern city in 2020. A Smart City. Urban planning, ecology, and information technology reach everywhere to improve quality of life. Sensor-based systems are already in place in many municipalities all over the world. Soon, smart cities everywhere will be generating tons of data to help us find a parking spot, conserve water, monitor transport, crowds, and pollution levels, and keep us safe. In Smart Cities 2.0, the citizens are driving. They demand quality-of-life indices. Lighting, energy, water, transportation are crucial; air quality and noise pollution touch everyone acutely. Sustainability has moved to the forefront and so has urban resilience, the ability to recover quickly from climate change risks or other disasters.

Session Presenter
Additional Information
Smart Cities
How sensors will help manage services, to improve, and modernize urban areas. Municipalities listened carefully to the many Smart City advantages; cost reduction was a big driver.
How interoperability is key with all the new radio and cloud technologies vying to be the single, "go-to" technology. Services are multiple in a city. There is not just one vendor.
We are a long way from commoditization. The Internet of Things is like a new railway age - hardware is nothing but the tracks. First come the tracks, then come the services.
