    It is posited that, through the integration of data services in cities can be transformed. In particular, it is thought that pervasive and ubiquitous networked embedded sensing systems can contribute to this transformation. This can be achieved through the exploitation of resultant sensor data stream. In order to effectively consider this hypothesis, it is necessary to investigate and understand the current art of pervasive and ubiquitous sensing in the city, and the resultant data streams. We provide an objective summary review of the urban sensing landscape, across multiple services and sectors. The scope of the review is limited to the city of London, which is often regarded as one of the most technologically advanced and digitized cities in the World. We catalogue the technological, spatiotemporal and representational characteristics of these open real-world sensor data streams, and how they came to existence. View full abstract»

  • Traffic in the Smart City: Exploring City-Wide Sensing for Traffic Control Center Augmentation

    Page(s): 22 - 29
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (3967 KB)  

    Smart city technologies can provide substantial benefits that improve people's daily lives. Here, the authors investigate how ubiquitous traffic sensing technologies and techniques can be incorporated with conventional traffic control and monitoring practices in the city of Oulu, Finland. In collaboration with the city's traffic control center and traffic planners, they exploit inductive magnetic sensing and Wi-Fi scanning across the city center, and develop tools to assist traffic operators in their tasks.

  • Tokyo Virtual Living Lab: Designing Smart Cities Based on the 3D Internet

    The Tokyo Virtual Living Lab is an experimental space based on 3D Internet technology that lets researchers conduct controlled driving and travel studies, including those involving multiple users in the same shared space. This shared-use feature is crucial for analyzing interactive driving behaviors in future smart cities. The lab's novelty is two-fold: it outputs a semantically enriched graphical navigation network using free map data as input, and it includes a navigation segment agent that coordinates a multiagent traffic simulator. This simulator, which is based on the navigation network, supports the integration of user-controlled vehicles. The lab's approach can significantly reduce the effort of preparing realistic driving behavior studies. To demonstrate this, the authors built a 3D model of a part of Tokyo to perform experiments with human drivers in two conditions: normal traffic and ubiquitous eco-traffic. View full abstract»

  • Scalable Anomaly Detection for Smart City Infrastructure Networks

    Page(s): 39 - 47
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (3500 KB)  

    Dynamically detecting anomalies can be difficult in very large-scale infrastructure networks. The authors' approach addresses spatiotemporal anomaly detection in a smarter city context with large numbers of sensors deployed. They propose a scalable, hybrid Internet infrastructure for dynamically detecting potential anomalies in real time using stream processing. The infrastructure enables analytically inspecting and comparing anomalies globally using large-scale array processing. Deployed on a real pipe network topology of 1,891 nodes, this approach can effectively detect and characterize anomalies while minimizing the amount of data shared across the network.

  • Fine-Grained Access to Smart Building Energy Resources

    Page(s): 48 - 56

    Smart city ecosystems provide fundamental resource services such as water and electricity through an intelligent management system. Here, the authors focus on energy resources for smart grids and smart buildings, investigating how a smart grid infrastructure accesses the energy resources in a smart building to obtain or control data. The energy service interface (ESI), which plays a communication gateway role at the boundary of a customer building, hasn't received much study. The authors examine its design principles for enabling fine-grained access, implement and deploy an ESI prototype, and illustrate interactive energy services between the grid infrastructure and smart buildings.

  • CrowdSC: Building Smart Cities with Large-Scale Citizen Participation

    A platform that connects citizens effectively to local government, letting them contribute to their community's general well-being, would be an elegant way to make cities smarter. CrowdSC is a crowdsourcing framework designed for smarter cities. The framework lets users combine data collection, selection, and assessment activities in a crowdsourcing process to achieve sophisticated goals within a predefined context. Depending upon this process's execution strategy, different outcomes are possible. The authors describe CrowdSC's process model and evaluate three execution strategies. View full abstract»

    Technological advances, exploding amounts of information, and user receptiveness are fueling augmented reality's (AR) rapid expansion from a novelty concept to potentially the default interface paradigm in coming years. This article briefly describes AR in terms of its application in natural Web interfaces. The authors discuss key concepts involved in AR, and the technical and social challenges that remain.

  • Testing Elastic Computing Systems

    Elastic computing systems are a new breed of software system that arose with cloud computing and continue to gain increasing attention and adoption. They stretch and contract in response to external stimuli, such as the input workload, aiming to balance resource use, costs, and quality of service. The relationships between quality, costs, resources, and workloads are complex and--given such systems' runtime adaptability--inherently dynamic, making it difficult to properly design elastic computing systems. Their quality assurance is imperative, yet highly challenging. Here, the authors introduce novel ideas on testing for elastic computing systems, identify some primary research challenges, and discuss future directions for this topic. View full abstract»

    Software-defined networking (SDN) promises to bring radical improvements in both cost and functionality to the networking field. At the same time, SDN poses many fundamental questions, including deep architectural issues such as whether control should be centralized or distributed, and whether control and data planes should be separated or share fate. The Software Defined Networking Research Group has been formed to facilitate research into these and other foundational questions. View full abstract»
