How to Design a Smart City – IoT Technology Based

Smart Cities have been identified as a promising potential application domain for the information and communication technologies (ICT) and the Internet of Things (IoT) with a wide range of possible services that can benefit City Administration/Municipal Governance. Municipal governments around the globe are employing big data and Internet-of-Things applications to improve many aspects of daily life. Information and communication technology (ICT) is used to enhance quality, performance and interactivity of urban services, to reduce costs and resource consumption and to improve contact between citizens and government.

This workshop provides an overview of IoT applied while architecting smart city applications. The session provides building blocks and schematic of few case studies of smart cities. Attendees will learn fundamentals of IoT infrastructure and networking technologies such as IPv4, IPV6, Wi-Fi, BLE, 6LowPAN, ZigBee and Cellular concepts. Instructor will demonstrate few hardware, smart city sensors and IoT cloud technologies including AWS IoT, IBM Bluemix and Microsoft Azure. Few of the IoT communication protocol such as MQTT, CoApp shall be discussed. The session also helps to learn how to deploy interoperable and scalable smart city solutions that will meet needs of the city communities. It will help cities plan roadmaps to acquire these solutions for their citizens.

Participants will learn to design and analyze Smart City. The learning model includes sensors, hardware platform and cloud. Sensors related to Smart City such as Environmental Monitoring, e-Government, Waste Management, Flood Monitoring, Smart City Lights(LED), Smart Power Grid, Smart Parking, Smart Hospital, Smart Agriculture, etc., The workshop describes the block diagram, schematic and implementation plans. It also discusses Bill of Materials required to build a Smart City. The course outlines the usage of Cloud platform.  

Workshop Outcomes: At the end of this course, attendees will demonstrate the ability to:

  • Understand what IoT technologies are used for today, and what is required in certain scenarios.
  • Understand the types of technologies that are available and in use today and can be utilized to implement Smart City IoT based solutions.
  • Demonstrate on understanding of Smart City architecture, development and deployment.
  • Design an end-to-end Smart City project with all required components.
  • Discuss analytics, flowcharts for a Smart City.
Who Should Attend?
The IoT workshop is designed to help City officials, Municipality, Smart City project researchers, Cloud data scientist and Business manager who are planning to adopt and deploy Smart City. The workshops also helps for startups, medium and large companies to learn the current trend, technologies and implementation strategy for Smart City.
