People have long acted as sensors, indicating where government services are needed throughout a city. However, relying on residentsto report issues can result in underreporting in some communities and can increase time to resolution or response. We are at the brink of changingthis dynamic between residents and government dramatically—creating more responsive cities where issues are automatically identified by new sensing technologies and services are more effectively and equitably delivered. Through the deployment of connected IoTtechnologies, data sharing, and the use of use analytics and machine learning, governments will better understand the performance of its infrastructure and the health and safety of its neighborhoods.
Cities are always looking for new ways to maintain high standards of living and better ways to connect with citizens—all while serving growing populations. As part of their efforts to become smarter, more and more cities are turning to the Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technologies to improve municipal services and create additional sources of revenue.
As cities look toward the future, these technologies will be important for establishing new levels of connectivity between critical infrastructure, municipal agencies and city residents, workers and visitors. By working closely with leading technology vendors through public-private partnerships, smart cities of the future can improve their services, budget better, identify ways to share revenue and promote collaboration to better serve and protect the community.
Ecosystem Center Stage - Free to Attend
Multi-modal transportation is a current topic of discussion in the IoT and Smart Cities world. Innovation is key to drive change when it comes to transportation planning and execution. This panel of experts in logistics, operations, robotics and manufacturing bring together a model that will revolutionize the way people get around in their cities. By partnering, these companies have developed an innovative and scalable solution utilizing neighborhood electric vehicles to connect people to public transportation as well as getting accurate positioning system in place (Smart Roads). By adding such a service, communities can change their attitudes about using their cars on a daily basis, reducing carbon emissions, traffic congestion and driving economic re-development in transit or food deserts.
Creating the next generation of Public Services in Housing, Health, Transportation, Environment, Education
Starting with People (People’s portal, events, involvement etc)
Workshops (Harmonising, policies, processes, politicians, people)
Strategic Board (Formal (CEO’s, Ministers, Directors) and Informal ordinary people + Tech companies + Education Sector + Private Sector)
Working Group (Combining the above of formal and informal to create working pilot projects that are scalable solutions across UK, Europe and the World).
Journey Book (Creation of a Handbook of next generation of public services) an easy pick up guide to creating best service delivery practice for 2025 onwards.
Our pilots starting in 2018 – Signing of 3 franchises with different cities to begin the above implementation (those signing will join live via Skype from Europe and UK)
Creation of services that are designed by multi-stakeholders (as per Strategic Board above both formal and informal)
Lower costs and greater efficiencies using Digital Technologies to improve the quality of life for all
Creating Social Change at all levels to bring everyone forward together
Using technology to support delivery of next generation of public services better
Our examples of these
Housing (demonstration of our Housing portal showing how to bring Housing Communities together to tackle safety, security, loneliness, creating opportunities, improving health and well-being, creating stronger communities). Thus reducing costs on Municipal and Health authorities, creating greater empowerment at local level and in turn creating improvement of quality of life for all.
EDU world holding Smart Cities Education structure:
What is the structure
Multiple Benefits of bringing together Universities, Enterprises, and Educational organisations and creating a strong central management model to achieve:
Smarter uses of resources at all levels
Reduction in costs
Creating the next generation of educational and qualification services
Knowledge sharing/Collaborative working
Bringing Education, Enterprise, Research Centres, Not for Profit together to generate greater value – maximising the effect of shared outcomes
Redefining of Internationalisation of Curriculum, of the education systems and creating better education outcomes using technologies and smarter management.
Smart Cities Board – Slovakia and Italy
Slovakia – First Phase
Environment, Sports and Health (all based around prevention) leading to a better quality of life
Second Phase – to bring together all key stakeholders to develop the strategy
Italy – First Phase
Public and private sector stakeholders alike can benefit from the information each other possesses. By aggregating all-source information and applying emerging fields of artificial intelligence, opportunities are abound for harnessing the compounding value of data. UrbanLogiq provides a platform that combines unconventional data sets together to create a unified view of a city's urban intelligence.
Infrastructure & Enablers
Mass Transit is the most sustainable solution for cities to combat the effects of global climate change, limit pollution, and reduce the use of fossil fuels. Many cities that have a mass transportation network move millions of people from place to place and more specifically back and forth to work each day, and take millions of people out of their cars, and into a trains, light rail or buses for their daily commute.
Mass transit networks are becoming more sustainable in operations, design, and maintenance, and look at many ways to reduce their emissions and carbon footprint. Mass transportation is helping the world by reducing emissions that pollute the air and increase the greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere.
The presentation will focus on past, present and future environmental sustainable transportation initiatives at MTA New York City Transit, and how one of the largest mass transportation agency in the world incorporates sustainable design into capital construction projects. NYCT’s Department of Capital Program Management (CPM), which organizes its efforts under the structure of ISO 14001 certified Environmental Management System (EMS) since 1999, incorporates environmentally sustainable elements in all of its design and construction projects.
This will be your chance to sit down with the industry’s leading experts and pose your IoT-related questions over lunch.
