  7. 7. Comms infrastructure is important … only those who know about them! a recognition that service delivery is improved by being citizen centric: placing the citizen’s needs at the forefront sharing management information to provide a coherent service, rather than operating in a multiplicity of service silos (for example, sharing changes of address more effectively) offering internet service delivery where possible (at a fraction of the face to face cost) But who cares about services and information? Tuesday,  8  September  15   7
  8. 8. Knowledge needs intelligence needs information an intelligent physical infrastructure (“smart” systems or the Internet of Things) enable service providers to use the full range of data both to manage service delivery on a daily basis and to inform strategic investment in the city/community for example, gathering and analysing data on whether public transport is adequate to cope with rush hour peaks Information needs sensing and collection Tuesday,  8  September  15   8 [REF to be provided]

  13. 13. Bristol Bristol is looking to leverage their 30Gbps fibre optic broadband network and Bristol Uni’s supercomputer by building a sensor network on top of this infrastructure. As part of the ‘Bristol is Open’ project, investigate how big data can be used to solve problems such as air pollution, traffic congestion and assisted living for the elderly. They are also investigating self-driving cars. As with other cities, they want to use city data sets to invigorate the development of new services to create ecosystems. air pollution, traffic congestion and assisted living for the elderly Tuesday,  8  September  15   13
  14. 14. Milton Keynes The MK:Smart project has currently installed sensors in the public bins to notify dustmen when to empty them. Sensors for pest control and monitoring cycle and pedestrian traffic. Driverless vehicle technology. The goal of the project is to innovate in the areas of transport, energy and water management, tackling key demand issues whilst addressing the challenges of supporting sustainable growth without exceeding the capacity of the infrastructure, and whilst meeting key carbon reduction targets. rubbish collection, pest control, traffic management, autonomous vehicles Tuesday,  8  September  15   14
  15. 15. Glasgow Glasgow is building a smart city demonstrator (Future City Glasgow) for integrated services across health, transport, energy and public safety. It will also serve as a testbed for businesses to test new solutions which can then be implemented in other cities. As part of this project: •  City Data Hub – Provides entrepreneurs with almost 400 city data sets (e.g. smart street lights) to allow them to create new services. •  Sensorised homes to help reduce energy wastage. integrated services across health, transport, energy and public safety Tuesday,  8  September  15   15
  16. 16. Manchester Manchester is undertaking a number of initiatives to encourage its development as a “smart city” and is a partner in a number of European projects with other comparable cities such as Helsinki, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Ghent, Bologna and Cologne. The aim is to share best practice in the use of technology to significantly improve life for the people who live and work in our urban areas. They are looking to develop a living lab although not much information about it currently exists. Living lab for best practice in the use of technology Tuesday,  8  September  15   16
  17. 17. Peterborough Part of IBM’s Smarter Planet/Smarter Cities Initiative. They are promoting their Peterborough DNA programme which aims to deliver growth, innovation and sustainability for the city. Similar to other cities promoting themselves as ‘smart’, they are creating enablers such as these to encourage entrepreneurs to make the city a better place. Improve business environment Tuesday,  8  September  15   17
  18. 18. London At the core of London’s Smart City vision, it believes it must harness new technologies and its creative strengths if the city is to adapt to meet the challenges caused by a growing population (congestion, public services, pollution, etc.). Some of the key areas London is trying to promote itself is: •  The provision of open data. The London Datastore receives over 25,000 visits a month and over 450 transport apps alone have been created from it. The management of London’s passenger and road transport systems is amongst the most advanced in the world. Innovations include: Congestion Charging using number plate recognition, the intelligent road network management systems trialled during the Olympics and Wifi on the Tube. London’s move towards digital money is bringing efficiency savings - from London Transport's contactless Oyster card to using credit and debit cards to instantly pay for travel. •  The application of new technologies to re-use waste heat, such as from underground shafts and sub stations, and showcasing how hydrogen energy and fuel cell technology can be an emission free way to power London’s transport, homes and businesses. -  A centre for showcasing new technology and innovation, collaborating with London’s world class research institutions. Examples include Siemens’ £30 million investment in the Crystal to explore how technology can create a better future for our cities, and Intel’s investment in a Connected Cities’ institute with Imperial College and UCL, which engages Londoners in the development and design of new technology to ensure it meets the needs of citizens, not just cities. Transport, and almost anything else… Tuesday,  8  September  15   18
  19. 19. London It is expected that an investment in technology and data can drive improvements in: •  Enterprise - enabling businesses to innovate and respond to these demands •  Skills – enhancing access to knowledge and training to enable Londoners to take part •  Energy & utilities – efficient and responsive management of resources, absorbing additional pressure while reducing carbon impact •  Safety – converging technology and data to improve the safety of Londoners (e.g. enabling cross-agency responses to emergency call outs) •  Health - new ways of providing holistic patient care and monitoring •  Transport – planning and managing journeys to reduce congestion Why are they bothering?

Converting smart meter readings to information that can help prediction and balance of power consumption in a city. Monitoring elderly homes, personal and public healthcare applications. Event and incident analysis and prediction using (near) real-time data collected by citizen and device sensors. Turning social media data (e.g. Tweets) related to city issues into event and sentiment analysis. Any many more… 29

  34. 34. In Conclusion Combining data from Physical, Cyber and Social sources can give more complete, complementary data and contributes to better analysis and insights. Intelligent processing methods should be adaptable and able to handle dynamic, multi-modal, heterogeneous and noisy and incomplete data. Smart cities are complex social systems and no technological and data- analytics-driven solution alone can solve the problems. 34
