“Smart Cities pursue sustainability, livability, and social equity through technological and design innovation” (MIT research group): with this aim in mind we believe that urban analytics is a key step to understand our space and to realize smart services.
Specifically designed cyber-physical systems are used in conjunction with standard monitoring stations to sense and provide multilevel, heterogeneous and pervasive information. This information is put in relation through the time and geo-localization of the data and the physical communication and transportation networks of the city, acting like a biological nervous system.
Data-driven analysis highlights the behaviors that emerge from the interplay of human related activities and the natural phenomena.
The Padova Smart City project has received funding from Comune di Padova.
How to turn dumb data into smart services?
in the analysis phase to allow the interpretation of the data, the definition of metrics and the generation of information
in the synthesis phase, to ease the decision process that define city policies
Three areas of investigation are considered:
- Environmental monitoring (from pollution to public lighting)
- Public service control (e.g. bike sharing)
- Human related behavior analysis (e.g. traffic monitoring)
The Bike Sharing model
to optimize the initial service condition in order to reduce user discomfort (i.e. maximize QoS)
- to design efficient control procedures to act continuously and regulate the free dynamics, based on the maximization of the QoS or on the minimization of the control cost
