During the last two years, the digital technology aspects of smart communities has become a key research are for Saverio. 2
  • Focus Points• Introducing the concept of smart communities• Providing an overview on the evolution of smart community projects in Europe• Discussing the current role of the mobile industry in smart community projects• Emphasizing a systematic view on smart community• Seeing communities as technology ecosystems and the future role of the mobile industry 3
  • Introducing the Concept Smart Community 4
  • Why Do We Talk About Smart City?The balance between urbanand rural population goes Innovation City seen as an engine of newtowards 80%-20% ideas and economic growth Aesthetics Demography Smart City and Social Perception of Cities Re-emphasizing the AncientMaking our living spaces Greek “agora’” through newsustainable from an Sustainability technologies and creativeenvironmental point of view and approaches to livingcost point of view Source: Frost & Sullivan. 5
  • But, It Is not Just Large Cities. It Is a New Way of SeeingSmart Spaces in Broader Context Cities • Smart metropolitan areas and large urban conglomerate Small Towns • Small towns, rural areas, peripheral areas need to Hubs and embrace to “smartness” Neighborhoods agenda • Intelligent spaces for Public businesses and Buildings citizens • Buildings are increasingly becoming active and intelligent units Source: Frost & Sullivan. 6
  • Key Concepts in Smart Community and the Role of ICT A smart community is a system that is able to optimise the use of its Collaborative Mobility resources enabling synergic interactions between the various Decision Making systems and networks, enabling high levels of mobility in terms of people, resources, opportunities, and involving in the decision making process the various stakeholders living and operating in System the community. Optimisation Information and Communications Technologies are The Necessary Enabler Source: Frost & Sullivan. 7
  • The Role of Mobile Industry in Smart Communities ˝ Mobiles are our futures, the lifeblood of our lifestyles, the neurons of our networks and soon – the central structure of our cities They may not offer shelter but they’ll activate awnings before it’s started raining. Soon enough city-dwellers will be utterly dependent on these miniaturised and embedded crucial crowd-sourced data that feeds the mighty machine mouths and minds of our metropolises. ˝ Alex Haw & Carlo Ratti*.

  • Smart Community Projects in Europe 9
  • Source of Smart Community Projects in Europe Various levels of governments National government initiatives (national, regional, municipality) can use EU funding for their initiative Living Labs Smart Community European Smart City and Community Initiatives Projects in Commission Europe Research focused initiatives (e.g. FP7) Companies participate in EU projects through the “matching funding” criterion Private-led Initiatives 10
  • Nature of Smart Community Projects Project with a focus on a specific systemHigh (energy, transport) of the community. Number of Projects One System only Holistic ViewLow 2012 2020 Project that aims at different systems of the community and at their interoperability. This also brings new professional entities such as a Digital Technology Officer or a Chief Technology Officer. Source: Frost & Sullivan. 11
  • Examples of “One System Only” Projects Smart Mobility • The main focus in such projects is to help improve mobility for vehicles and pedestrians by providing information on traffic, parking spots and reduce energy consumption and pollution. • Some examples of such projects are SMARTip, Smart Energy Demo-Fit for SET, Amsterdam Smart City, i-scope Freilot, Cosmo, Co-cities, Intime, HeERO. Smart Participation • Projects focusing on Smart Participation aims to build a city/town where governance and administration is undertaken based on the interaction between public officials and the citizens of that particular city/town. • Examples: Smartcities in the North Sea Region,SMARTip (Cologne, Ghent and Oulu), PEOPLE (Bilbao, Bremen, Thermi, Vitry Sur Seine), Open Cities (Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Helsinki, Paris) Life 2.0 (Aalborg, Barcelona, Joensuu, Milan) Smart Environment • Each of these projects have a different agenda. While some of them look to bring about energy efficiency across all areas, some of them focus on specific areas like renovating public buildings to conserve energy, providing information about surrounding environment to citizen, assessing noise levels etc. • SmartSpaces (Milan, Birmingham, Bristol, Istanbul, Belgrade, Leicester, Hagen, Lleida, Murcia, Venlo and Moulins.) Smart Energy Demo-Fit for SET (18 regions across Austria),SMARTip (Manchester, Ghent) 12
  • Examples of “Holistic” Projects T-City Friedrichshafen SmartSantander Amsterdam Smart City Living PlanIT - Paredes 13
  • Smart Rural Areas – The Case of Superfast Cornwall An extraordinary effort to bring superfast broadband to Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. But connectivity is not the only aim. Superfast Cornwall is promoting the development of services for digital inclusion, e-government and business innovation through initiatives such as Superfast Cornwall Innovation Labs and Superfast Cornwall Fund. 14

  • Mobile Apps for Smart Communities – The Key Role ofMobile Computing Ecosystems•Smart City Apps are essential tools that enable city inhabitants to carry out their everyday activities. These apps maybe developed to support different public services. Currently, there are three main areas where smart city apps arebeing developed. These are Smart Mobility, Smart Governance, Smart Environment. These are mostly location-based apps that provide information about navigation, real-time Smart Mobility traffic, public transport schedules, or parking spots. These may also include apps developed to assist tourists within a city.•Transport, Traffic and Navigation Apps: HopStop, Öffi-Public Transport Buddy, Citymapper, e-miXer In-Time, Wheelmap(for wheelchair users)•Parking Apps: Parker and m-Parking•Location- Based Apps: Wikitude, Acrossair, Good Food near you, Next2Me•Tourism Apps: Walk and Feel (Helsinki), Time Travel Explorer (currently for London) These help build interaction between the Government and citizens. These apps are Smart Governance generally used to report problems and provide suggestions, which encourage participative governance in a city.Participative Governance Apps: FixMyCity, FixMyStreet, Meetup, Citizen Mailbox These are apps that provide useful information about the user’s surroundings with an aim to Smart Environment promote an eco-friendly society.Environment Apps: Pollution, Noise Meter, Smart Recycling, Visibility 20
  • European Cities Increasingly Relying on Mobile Apps forTheir ServicesMany European cities are investing in developing mobile apps to facilitate the provision of publicservices in these areas. Barcelona and Amsterdam are two examples which have developed suchapps. Barcelona- MyCity Solutions Amsterdam Smart City • Mobility: City Transport, City Traffic, • Mobility: Amsterdam App, iBiking, M-Parking MyTrafficJam, Amsterdam Commuter, Park Shark API, • Location-Based Applications: BikeCityGuide Next2Me, City Beaches, City Agenda • Tourism: Bike Like a Local, WalkMe, • Governance: Citizen Mailbox, CultureApp, Appening Amsterdam FixThis • Governance and Safety: MyNewPremises, Vacant Offices Amsterdam, Drive Carefully, Swimmingwater Map • Environment: Bulky Basics 21
  • The Future of Smart Communities Projects in Europe – Toward a Networked Systemic View 22
  • A Networked Systemic View of Communities Imagine communities as a distributed network system of intelligent devices. These devices (buildings, roads, parks, fields, etc) communicate to each other. This requires a common language and common platform exchanges 23

  • Smart Communities Ecosystems• Smart Community Service Platform requires a complex set of technologies, therefore a complex set of expertise.• Ecosystems of different technology players can provide that set of expertise.• Mobile network operators can drive or co-drive those ecosystems, in collaboration with other key technology players.• Those ecosystems should go beyond ICT involving other industries relevant for smart communities projects.• Those ecosystems should engage proactively with community authorities guiding them in the long journey of transforming their communities in smart communities. 25
