A smart city knows itself and adapts to current demands. Communication technologies, sensor systems and control technology all enable the collection of essential basic data, from traffic to environment, and the processing of information about the city.
Urban infrastructures and administrative systems are deeply integrated into the smart city. They allow for the analysis, safeguarding and optimization of data beyond subject, organizational and technological boundaries. Interoperability and the safety of ICT-based solutions are hereby essential. These key indicators can be realized, tested and evaluated using model-based methods.
In the city of tomorrow, data, information, services and tools will be available at the level of infrastructure, platforms and applications. Defined interfaces and formats ensure the safe, flexible and robust access via fixed, mobile or also ad-hoc networks.
Information is the resource of the 21st century. The open access to freely available databases from various sources contributes significantly to the development of the information society. Basic data can be processed through cloud-based data services and tools for further use and refinement.
Information services and mobile applications for the end customer as well as machine-based solutions enable the analysis, safeguarding and optimization of processes in the city. They provide access to information as well as individual control options in the city of tomorrow.
