  1. 1. Smart Citizens in Smart Cities: Open Innovation, Living Labs & Future Internet Manchester and the Connected Smart Cities Network Dave Carter, Head, Manchester Digital Development Agency (MDDA) City of Manchester (UK) Chair, European Connected Smart Cities Portfolio NetworkFuture Internet Research and ExperimentationBy Adopting Living Labs 20100930
  2. 2. Smart City Agendas • Smart, inclusive & sustainable growth • Green & Digital • Transformational services • Open innovation, open data, open networks Future Internet enabled services in Smart Cities • Internet of Things + Cloud + Open Data + 3D printing + nano... • mapping current experience & knowledge • identifying challenges and opportunities • creating open networks for Smart City collaboration20100930
  3. 3. What can Smart Cities be about? • Usage of digital spaces and technologies, e.g. sensors & networks, to enhance the city and city life • Digital dimensions of cities – digital ’master- planning’ + digital design guides • Future Internet as medium & catalyst for organizing collective intelligence of cities • Local Digital Agendas to promote future city innovation strategies • Smart people and smart technologies: making cities become smarter together • Smart citizens in smart cities – urban OPEN systems20100930
  4. 4. Urban Open Systems• Smart Cities: – Smart: innovation, invention & entrepreneurship – Inclusive: multiple deprivation & scale of social exclusion in urban areas – Sustainable: cities generate 75%+ of emissions = problem & solution• Cities as engines of regional growth = Smart Regions – Manchester City Region – MCR = 5% of national economy, 40% of regional economy – City Region = larger economic unit than Wales, Northern Ireland or North East of England• Urban Open Systems = People + Open Data + Co-production – “From Human Factors to Human Actors” Bannon, J Liam. 1991. “The Role of Psychology and Human-Computer Interaction Studies in System Design”.
  5. 5. Global connectivity • UK less than 1% (not actually ‘on the map’) • Domestic broadband is cheap, widely accessible but slow (20 Mbps down, 2 Mbps up) • High speed connectivity (100 Mbps+) is very expensive, often more than €500 per month • Difficult for new businesses to enter the market
  6. 6. Report: Will Video Kill the Cloud Star?• new ideas needed• Future Internet means future thinking• new test-beds• new demonstration sites• fully IP media environments• unlimited content distribution networks
  7. 7. Critical Infrastructures• Green, Mobile & Digital• Digital as the new real estate of the 21st century• UK as world leader in creativity and content – way behind in connectivity• MCR is 2nd largest digital & creative sector in UK• Only globally connected Internet Exchange outside of London• Digital Hub Network: connecting key sites via the Metrolink tram network• Creating transformational digital infrastructure • open access networks – fibre + wireless • digital hubs – where networks interconnect • backbone networks – build your own networks• Infinite Bandwidth, Zero Latency (IBZL)
  8. 8. Fibre to the People – key attributes• Fully point-to-point• Fully open to the passive layer• Fully open co-location• Direct connection to carrier neutral Internet Exchange• A ‘Free Trade Fibre’ Enterprise Network to encourage investment: – open innovation ‘Living Lab’ test-bed for new applications – maximum technical flexibility for property owners and developers to build their own networks and connect – trialling new business models including shared passive infrastructure and local patchwork – Potential to scale up re-using public assets, especially the roll-out of the tram network and other transport corridors
  9. 9. Infrastructure for Mobility
  10. 10. Manchester Living Lab & SMARTiP project• Test-bed smart environments network along Corridor• Affordable and accessible sensors including DIY (Arduinos)• Potential for wearables (clothes, bikes etc.) and micro-production• Links to Corridor fibre and wireless networks• Future links to transport network and GM wide deployment
