  10. 10. Smart City: Seoul • Seoul, South Korea has equipped its taxis and buses with GPS transmitters and used data from the movement of these vehicles to monitor traffic flows and optimize traffic lights, speed limits, and public transportation schedules, often in real-time. • The city further combines this vehicle data with smart transit-card data (more recently NFC-enabled smartphone wallet data) to observe the movement of people through the city’s subways, buses, and taxis and ensure both adequate capacity in the transportation system and adjacent infrastructure and services like housing, retail, and policing.

  11. 11. Smart City: Other Examples • Dublin, Ireland worked with IBM to install a network of sensors throughout the city to monitor traffic in real-time. • This data is combined with closed-circuit cameras and bus-mounted GPS transmitters to digitally map the city in real-time and to enable real-time, intelligent traffic management measures. • London hired Microsoft in 2011 to create a developer platform around its real-time raw transportation data with the goal of offering consumers more insight into the various transportation options available on any given route. • Usage of the platform quickly grew from thousands to millions of users per day. • The city also layered in Internet of Things devices to monitor temperature, vibration, and humidity, and to detect faults in the Underground train system. • Uber offer cities, beginning with Boston, access to its trip data for use in master-planning Source: PandodailyCopyright © William El Kaim 2016 12
  12. 12. Smart City: Data and API • The smart cities agenda is transforming how cities manage their infrastructure and how they communicate with citizens and local businesses. • Open data and the use of sensor technologies to provide real-time feedback on the use of urban infrastructure are two components at the center of what is considered a “smart city.” • Cities around the world are opening up their public transport data to enable third-party developers to create new commercial and social good products. • Public transport is often a good starting point for cities looking to open up useful data sources as part of a smart cities agenda.

  13. 13. Smart City: Data and API • How public transport data is opened (and the role of APIs in this process) demonstrates the potential that comes from cities opening up their data: • It is an immediately useful data source that enhances participation in city life. • It can add value to contextual and personal data. • It has a real-time component. • There are commercial revenue opportunities across a range of industry uses, with innovative business models that can be applied. • It often involves multiple stakeholders and, therefore, requires aggregating of data from multiple sources.

  15. 15. Open & Agile Smart Cities (OASC) initiative • The Open & Agile Smart Cities (OASC) initiative, signed by 31 cities from Finland, Denmark, Belgium, Portugal, Italy, Spain and Brazil, aims to kickstart the use of a shared set of wide-spread, open standards and principles, enabling the development of smart city applications and solutions to reach many cities at once, by making systems interoperable between cities, and within a city. • Cities adopt an initial open-licensed standard API FIWARE NGSI, which provides lightweight and simple means to gather, publish, query and subscribe context-based, real-time information. • The cities will also use and improve standard data models based on experimentation and actual usage. • The initial data models were chosen by mature European smart cities in the CitySDK initiative, forming the basis for a joint City Service Development Kit. Copyright © William El Kaim 2016 16
  16. 16. Open API Platform FIWARE • The EU-funded open API platform FIWARE has reached an agreement with seven countries to embed its core infrastructure as open API standards for creating new civic tech solutions. • Belgium, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Portugal and Spain • Agreed to three technical mechanisms for the development of smart city infrastructure. • To support the deployment of FIWARE’s NGSI API open standard, which proposes a common data model for getting real-time, contextual data about cities • To share API data models, starting with the CitySDK APIs • To use the open source platform CKAN to publish open data. • The initiative hopes to foster the growth of a new wave of startups focused on smart city technologies.

  131. 131. Mobility: Multimodal & Door to Door • Multimodal is a way to combine metro (subway), train, bus, bicycle, walk or car to go from one place to another. • The other terminology used is "door to door", in that case, you have to add taxi and black car (car with chauffeur). • Some important distinctions should be noted when speaking of multimodal search: • Planning vs.. Booking: some routing includes prices some not • Routing could be based on actual timetables or only on approximate ones • For example some do not use actual timetables (they use information like: 'one train every hour' and might then be wrong by up to an hour), most others do. • Multimodal is emerging mainly due to the high speed train network, but also to reduce CO2 emission. So they are generally also taken into account as search parameters. Copyright © William El Kaim 2016 132

  151. 151. Platform: What Are We Doing That’s Bigger Than Us? • Platform is one of the most misunderstood ideas in the world of the Digital world. • Platforms can be accidental or intentional. • A platform is a foundational product that moves beyond product status by encouraging others to build, play, and/or iterate on top of it. • The value and utility of the system is continually being discovered and expanded not just by the organization, but by its users and customers. • Platforms are shared innovation engines that outsource the costly and uncertain discovery process. • Many platforms today are 100% software, but they don’t have to be. • AirBnB and Uber turned the physical world (cars and housing) into a platform for millions.

  152. 152. Platform: What Are We Doing That’s Bigger Than Us? • Users are building businesses on the back of the platform, and in some cases changing how they operate in order to better serve the platform. • Establishing a platform in the center of a robust digital ecosystem requires a digital operating model, one that is appropriately permeable to third parties that can co-create new value from what a company and others have to offer.

Ecosystems are developed using platforms to glue services via API and funds to encourage startups and partners to hook in Source: PWC, Exploiting the growing value from informationCopyright © William El Kaim 2016 166
  166. 166. Three types of public transport APIs 1. The first is created by volunteers who just scrape the data. As the API creators are also reusing them, the format and vocabulary for their responses and resources are often custom made for their specific use case. • Examples: Swiss Public Transport API, Belgium iRail 2. A second type of APIs are the ones created by data owners or the transport companies themselves. • They are set up in order to stimulate reuse for use cases they have in mind. The problem with these APIs is that often there are rate limits; it is hard to get through the user agreements; they have awkward SOAP/XML constructions; and they don't follow existing specifications such as SIRI or GTFS-realtime.” • Examples: Dutch Railways, French National Railways Source: ProgrammableWebCopyright © William El Kaim 2016 167
  167. 167. Three types of public transport APIs 3. A third type of APIs are the ones created by a consortium of stakeholders reusing the API and the data owner. • The API comes to exist after different people with different use cases are putting forward some resources they need, when they also add how the response should look like, and maybe help build these APIs on top of Open Data. • Examples: Bliksem Labs, Navitia, OpenTripPlanner Source: ProgrammableWebCopyright © William El Kaim 2016 168

  169. 169. Transport API Britain • The Transport API has about 600 developers, and while initial growth focused on smartphone apps, it is seeing greater uptake among hyperlocal applications offered by larger enterprises. • Becoming a data aggregator is one approach to commercialization that may suit some developers. For Transport API, the opportunities to service new markets is continually growing. • Commercial API license model has drawn in hyperlocal customers like ScreachTV and Toothpick • It is also servicing large government authorities and global franchises operating in the U.K. • Heathrow airport populating their kiosk screens and websites.

  173. 173. API: Metropolitan Transit Authority of New York (MTA) • The Metropolitan Transit Authority of New York (MTA) provides the MTA API for access to New York’s subway and bus GTFS data feeds. • A new policy will require developers to register for an API key before being granted access to the API data. • Since the MTA began publishing its open data in 2008, over 200 mobile apps using MTA data have been launched by the developer community • MTA’s terms and conditions of use require developers “to download and host the data on the developer's or a third party's server and to make the data available to others who will access the server provided by the developer.” (Original emphasis in the terms and conditions.)

  175. 175. API: Queensland Australia • The state of Queensland, in Australia, has responsibility for managing public transport services for its cities, including Brisbane. • Its Department of Transport and Main Roads’ TransLink division has released the OPIA API, which strongly recommends that developers build their own server-side service that wraps the TransLink API and to use caching of all data except the data needed for immediate journey planning.

  176. 176. API: TransitCast • Writing an API on top of existing APIs, perhaps by augmenting additional information, is definitely a viable business model. • This is the approach TransiCast has taken: • specialized in aggregating transit data across North America • working on curating public transportation data access on GoogleTransitDataFeed since 2006, with no association with Google • Out of the 300 feeds covered, about 20 require API keys, and they keep those as issued by the agency to developers, to place calls to the agency web services • Use Google App Engine (GAE) Source: ProgrammableWebCopyright © William El Kaim 2016 177
