Smart Cities

Submit Abstract Deadline: 30 October 2018

For the past two decades, every city has generated huge amounts of valuable data from every operational department, whether it is municipality, urban planning, land, public safety, traffic control, and others. The said data can provide spatial insights connected to the real-world space and make us understand what belongs where and how cities can measure and monitor every aspect of city operation.

Network of sensors, cameras, and wireless devices, connected through IoT, helps bridge the gap between city authorities and the community. Data collected from these devices and from the citizens will be processed and analyzed to create real-time knowledge, which becomes key to tackling inefficiency.

The Smart Cities track will feature experts from urban/city planning, engineers/consultants, mobility and transportation experts, technology providers and research/academic institutes, discussing geospatial technology as the backbone in empowering smart city management.

SESSION THEMES

City Information Modeling: Designing Resilient Cities

Smart cities movement is all about creating better planned, more connected, and more livable cities. City Information Modeling generally involves building a 3D city model that connects with building information and other contextual data source or analysis tool of various city components, including buildings, roads and public spaces (open data), streetlights (sensors/IoT), and even people on the street (social media).

By connecting building data to CIM, architects and planners are provided with an interactive, content-rich 3D city model environment. Through this, data can be accessed, analyzed, and shared anywhere in the world, in real time. Such data repository will be an invaluable asset for cities in the long run to generate data-driven policy, decision-making and overall city governance.

Integrating City Intelligence for Improved Operation

For the past two decades, every city has generated huge amounts of valuable data from every operational department, whether it is municipality, urban planning, land, public safety, traffic control, and others. The said data can provide spatial insights connected to the real-world space and make us understand what belongs where and how cities can measure and monitor every aspect of city operation.

Digital signage and mobile apps can deliver real-time information about transit delays to commuters. Installing IoT sensors on existing physical infrastructure can help crews to monitor and predict incoming problems. LED lighting systems networked with sensors allow energy and cost saving. Real-time air quality, solid waste and noise level monitoring, helps provide more comfortable living for citizens.

Location technology is a critical component in producing city intelligence that helps improve urban living. Successful case studies and latest state-of-the-art innovations will be presented covering mobility, energy efficiency, environmental monitoring and citizen engagement aspects in smart cities.
