AbstractImprove citizen life with real-time location intelligenceA city is a living organism that breathes, feels, and moves. A city is much more than its infrastructure, plans, and buildings. Until recently, the primary concern of systems with a location component was to characterize cities, allowing us to explore them virtually. Nowadays, we can feel the city as a living organism. Advances in communications and software solutions will enable us to see the city from second to second, understanding what is happening and where. With this type of information, we can infer behavior and act preventively, improving the lives of all citizens in near-real-time.
