Platform to deploy services exploiting aggregated open data from smart cities, providing methodologies to homogenize heterogeneous open data and data services, analytics to predict patterns and make recommendations.
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) supports the interaction between humans and devices in three consecutive activities: collecting, communicating and using information. First, the approach in SMART-FI is to collect information through fixed sensors, mobile devices or directly from services to capture data such as temperature, sound, location etc. Secondly, it communicates data using different networks. And finally, it interprets data to understand what has happened and what is likely to happen next, making predictions and recommendations. We will also present the data in a way that is understandable for those making decisions, such as authorities, citizens or other stakeholders, based on aggregated information. Most people now use mobile phones, not only to make phone calls, but also to interact with the world they live in to plan, schedule and organize their lives; all this information is available right within the palm of a hand. Citizens would like to have accurate and real-time personalized solutions from information regarding immediate or even near-future traffic, mobility patterns or other services relevant for their daily life. Additionally, the SMART-FI solution aims at supporting local authorities, public transport operators and other organisations to optimize the services provided supporting the concept of a smart city. The goal is also to apply standards as much as possible, and use common semantics to ensure that all open data used in applications can be reused easily in other places. The SMART-FI platform will be used to develop services in three smart city scenarios: Malaga, Spain; Malatya, Turkey and Karlshamn, Sweden providing added-value future Internet innovative services
