CINI Smart City University Challenge: Cos'e'?
Il CINI Smart City University Challenge e' una competizione universitaria organizzata dall'Universita' degli Studi dell'Aquila e dal Laboratorio CINI su Smart Cities and Communities ( e co-locato con la conferenza ICPE 2017 (

La lista delle istituzioni partecipanti e' riportata nel seguito. Studenti di Laurea, Laurea Magistrale e Dottorato stanno partecipanto a questa competizione.

Università degli studi dell'Aquila (organizzatori)
Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca
Università degli Studi del Sannio
Università degli Studi di Roma "Tor Vergata"
Università degli Studi di Parma
Università Ca' Foscari Venezia

La competizione si compone di due fasi:
Fase 1
Progetti su tematiche Smart City sono assegnati alle Universita' partecipanti, membri del Laboratorio CINI su Smart Cities and Communities. Ciascuan Universita' copre un tema specifico. Diversi team competono localmente, ed un team vincitore e' selezionato per ciascuna Universita'.

Fase 2
I team vincitori sono invitati a combinare i loro servizi al fine di creare un intero sistema di gestione delle smart city.
Gli studenti si incontreranno poi a L'Aquila il giorno 23 e 23 Aprile 2017, per completare la fase di integrazione. Verra' selezionato un team vincitore che verra' premiato durante la conferenza ICPE.La partecipazione e' gratuita.

  9. 9. Smart Mobility
  10. 10. • Distributed public transportation monitoring system • Key concepts • Mobile crowd sensing • Uses common smart phones as a sensors instead of expensive dedicated infrastructures • Context awareness • Uses Bluetooth-based beacons for the detection of buses and stations near to the user • Main goals • Public transportation monitoring and optimization • i.e. detect under- and over-used bus lines to improve services and reduce costs • Support for users’ travel planning • i.e. obtain information about current position of buses, average travel times, and estimated times of arrival
  11. 11. Hardware – Arduino Uno R3, RFID Card Reader, Display, keypad, buzzer, laptop PC. Software – Arduino Card Reader software, Arduino serial/java interface, java implementation of the ACoS subsystem logic. In order to be compliant with the UML model, the Arduino platform have been wrapped to communicate with the system through the interfaces designed in the models. Each component talks to others among Socket Interfaces. Università degli Studi de L’Aquila – ACoS System
