As a network of connected sensors to transform data into knowledge, Urban Platforms have been rooted in several smart city projects. However, this has often resulted in them being no more than IoT dashboards. More recently, there has been an increased interest in supporting the data governance and distributed architecture of Urban Platforms in orde...
Energy efficiency is one of the key characteristics of the smart cities and data-driven analytical methods, especially including IoT sensors, meaningful indicators are provided to support the leading of initiatives but also behavior changing in the citizen level. The analysis is oftentimes done in closed systems that contain sensors, data acquisiti...
The current cities’ urban challenges go through digitalization and integration of new technologies under the perspective of actual and future ecological, as well as socio-economic commitments. This process is translated into the Open Standardized Urban Data Platform, which plays a pivotal role. Within its main functionalities, data ingestion, analy...
Global acceptance and demand for urban digitization to solve current and future ecological and socio-economic challenges is increasing. Technically, the Smart City concept integrates different vertical domains and uses an Open Standardized Urban Platform (OSUP) as a horizontal integration layer. In this sense, urban platforms play an important role...
Visual 3D models are being deployed in smart cities around the world. While earlier the motivation was mostly to visualise the buildings, the latest developments will turn the 3D models into a rich source of information related to the urban landscape and built environment. The models can be used to compare the energy consumption between similar bui...
New solutions sometimes face challenges in acceptance as improvements and active citizen engagement plays a key role of resilient smart city development. This paper describes a set of actions in Helsinki as part of mySMARTLife project that are aimed to engage citizens in interaction. The actions range from online services and mobile applications to...
Building Automation Systems (BAS) are being deployed in commercial and public buildings to enable monitoring and control of various intelligent systems like HVAC, fire safety, security and lighting systems. Lighting is nowadays an integral part of BAS due to the constantly evolving central control requirements. The BAS is also a key tool in monitor...
The FinEst Twins is building the first global cross-border Smart City Centre of Excellence to Helsinki and Tallinn. This initiative is supported by the European Commission (H2020 European Union funding for Research & Innovation grant 856602 and ERDF grant 2014-2020.4.01.20-0289) and the Estonian Ministry of Education and Research.
The project will create a centre of excellence that will focus on developing research and cross-border innovation networks and capabilities in five domains – data, governance, mobility, energy, built environment – as well as on advancing the joint smart city environment and cross-border services between Tallinn and Helsinki.
