Smart and Secure Cities and Communities

  1. 1. SMART AND SECURE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES Sokwoo Rhee Associate Director of Cyber-Physical Systems Innovation National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) U.S. Department of Commerce NIST
  2. 2. Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart Communities/Cities NIST Service Data Analytics Physical Systems (via Sensing & Actuation) Communications Information Flow Infrastructure Applications
  3. 3. 3 Categories of IoT • Consumer IoT • Industrial IoT • Public Sector IoT: Smart Cities and Communities • Smart City/Community: Use smart technologies such as IoT and CPS to improve the quality of life in cities and communities • Many smart community efforts are one-off projects with heavy emphasis on customization and inadequate consideration for future upgradability and extensibility • As a result, many Smart Cities/Communities deployments are isolated and do not enjoy the economy of scale. NIST
  4. 4. Global City Teams Challenge (GCTC) Smart and Secure Cities and Communities • Establish and demonstrate replicable, scalable and sustainable models for collaborative incubation and deployment of interoperable, standard-based Internet of Things (IoT) solutions and demonstrate their tangible and measurable benefits in communities and cities • Tackle the cybersecurity, privacy, and trustworthiness issues as the first order concern. NIST
  5. 5. GCTC Approach Technology Innovators Sensor Systems Wearable devices Cloud Services Utilities Infrastructure Cyber/Physical Security Visualization Robotics Medical Services Building Controls Etc. … Emergency response, Disaster resilience Flood Prediction Renewable energy Utilities, Microgrids Water management Dashboard Multi-sector integration Building automation, Healthcare Air quality management Others … Action Clusters (Teams) Autonomous vehicles, Traffic congestion mgt, Parking management Last miles/first mile “SuperClusters” Smart City Projects Portland, OR U.S. Denton, TX Ammon, ID Columbus, OH Washington DC Others … Europe Amsterdam Genoa Valencia Asia Shirahama Others Busan, Daegu Africa, South America, Australia, etc. New York, NY NIST
  6. 6. Over 200 Cities & Communities in GCTC 2015-2018 (Partial list shown): • Portland, OR • Newport News, VA • Greenville, SC • Raleigh, NC • Montgomery County, MD • Winooski, VT • San Mateo County, CA • New York, NY • Washington, DC • Columbus, OH • Kansas City, MO • Nashville, TN • Austin, TX • Amsterdam (Netherlands) • Genova, Perugia (Italy) • Coruna, Valencia (Spain) • Saint-Quentin (France) • Abuja City, Obia-Akpor City (Nigeria) • La Marsa (Tunisia) • Seoul, Suwon, Daegu, Busan (Korea) • Saitama City, Shirahama Town (Japan) • Visit for the full list of participation cities in 2016-2017 NIST And, over 400 companies, universities, non-profits, government agencies

Convergence by GCTC Action Clusters affiliated with SuperClusters Super Cluster 1 AC Super Cluster 2 Super Cluster 3 Super Cluster N AC AC AC AC AC AC AC AC AC Individual entity Individual entity Individual entity Individual entity Individual entity AC ACACACAC AC AC Action Clusters NOT affiliated with SuperClusters Individual Entities affiliated with only SuperClusters SuperClusters (incl. leadership team) Individual entity Individual entity • Action Cluster is the basic unit of participation. It is a team of technology providers and one or more municipal partners. Action Cluster may choose to be affiliated with a SuperCluster. • SuperCluster is a collaboration of Action Clusters with participation from additional individual entities. Layer 1 Layer 2 Layer 3 Layer 4 Expo Exhibit/Presentation Opportunities - Layer 1-3: Eligible for an independent exhibit space and a presentation slot, assuming municipal participation - Layer 4: Can be part of a SuperCluster exhibit/presentation, but no independent space/presentation slot NIST Bottom-upprocess
