TU1204 People Friendly Cities in a Data Rich World Drafted by Professor Mark Dyer Professor Mary Lee Rhodes Trinity College Dublin Brian Evans, Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow Dick Gleeson, City Planner, Dublin City Council Professor Michael Goodsite, Aarhus University, Denmark Professor Kevin Leyden, NUI Galway & West Virginia University, USA Dr Francesco Rizzi, Scoula Superiore San’ Anna, Pisa Dr Yves de Weerdt, VITO, Belgium

Data Rich World SENSORS Smart Meters Smart Phones/Tablets GPS Devices/CCTV Weather Sensors Building Sensors ANALYTICS Algorithims Closed-Loop Systems Optimize Consumption Location Sensing SERVICES Location Services Crowd Sensing Traffic Management Smart Electric Grid Disaster Management Security (Naphade et al 2011)
  4. 4. Rethinking Cities ? Smarter: Focuses most on Technology, Data, ICT solutions, and System modeling and management. Smarter Cities function more effectively and efficiently. Typically the focus is upon the systems that make cities work (e.g., transportation, energy, water, and government services). Liveable: Focuses more on Urban design/Planning, Architecture, Aesthetics, Public Policy, and more effective government. Livability is about creating attractive, sustainable, and healthy places that are good for people and the environment.

  8. 8. City Sounding Board The City Sounding Board is the central idea is to generate an agile resource that will help bridge the gap between traditional City Governance, research, and the citizen. The City Sounding Board would operate within a set of Character Areas, representing a coherent expression of local diversity across the social, economic, and cultural spheres. The spatial areas they cover range from 10 hectares to 25 hectares. The process will comprise sequential workshops will focus on the following tasks[a] establish the collective value system for the character area [b] express a long term vision/shape of success[c] articulate qualities that would evidence this [d] what are the disconnects/issues that block the achievement of this future.

Framework for Collaborative Urbanism Key Performance Indicators: Process and Outcomes • KPIs to assess progress of the design process in partner cities • An evaluation of public input and measureable interface between stakeholders. • A record about new solutions and ideas and whether there were meaningful efforts to connect technological solutions with public policy, services or infrastructural change. • A measure of the effect of policy change if it in fact occurs.
