    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (184 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper deals with problems which are characteristic for almost all the Smart Cities systems, namely for those which are operating in significant time dynamics (or in other independent variable). These systems which main aim is to improve the level of life of city population and prolong its live are in their functions dominantly uncertain. Such situations are typical especially for city transpo... View full abstract»

  • A program searching for a functional dependence using genetic programming with coefficient adjustment

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):1 - 6
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (902 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    When modeling many traffic problems, it is necessary to find the functional dependence of the output of two input variables. This task can be solved by a neural network, by using some spline interpolation or polynomials, etc. These approaches can produce a model, but its internal description is unreadable and its transfer to another program can be difficult. Therefore, a program to determine this ... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose the conjunction of the Smart City Initiative and the concept of Industry 4.0. The term smart city has been a phenomenon of the last years, which is very inflected especially since 2008 when the world was hit by the financial crisis. The main reasons for the emergence of the Smart City Initiative are to create a sustainable model for cities and preserve quality of life of ... View full abstract»

  • Solution to the location-routing problem using a genetic algorithm

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):1 - 6
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (141 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we focus on solving location-routing problem that belongs to NP-hard problems and that often appears in the optimization of supply chain and distribution systems. The goal of location-routing problem is to determine the location of multiple depots together with vehicle routes such that the total cost of the system is minimal. A genetic algorithm is proposed to solve a deterministic ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (571 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Active school transport (AST) - walking or bicycling from home to school at least once a week - brings the children health benefits but it also helps to develop sustainable mobility in the city. Together with building social relationships in the environment it forms one of the principles of the Smart City concept. The ultimate decision whether an eleven-year-old child will actively travel to schoo... View full abstract»

    A smart city is supposed to be a safe city. At this moment we observe multiple cameras in around public buildings and along streets to detect suspicious behavior. Samples of the video footage is monitored 24/7 by operators in control rooms. Currently the recorded videos are visual inspected after a suspicious event has happened. There is a need for real time monitoring with smart cameras which are... View full abstract»

    The risk management is the main tool for ensuring the safety of each followed entity, i.e. also the smart facilities and smart cities. Due to the system nature of real entities it needs to be used the integral safety concept. This concept fulfils the demands put on smart technologies and smart facilities that create the smart cities. From this viewpoint it is necessary to upgrade smart cities faci... View full abstract»

    This paper deals with the concept of transit oriented development (TOD) and its application in mid-size cities with about 100,000 inhabitants. Two basic parameters of TOD and their impact on public transport use are tested - destination accessibility and distance to transit. An additional test was the impact of the distance to streetcar stop as a more comfortable public transport mode, and frequen... View full abstract»

    Nowadays, the term smart city is often used as a selling argument for projects. Unfortunately, it is often degraded to a simple use of advanced technology. However, it was demonstrated in several scientific publications as well as for example in Amsterdam city that the citizen's quality of life shall be one of the main objectives in any smart city project. In order to enhance this topic, we provid... View full abstract»
