SMART CITIES is a term that has gained traction in academia, business and government to describe cities that, on the one hand, are increasingly composed of and monitored by pervasive and ubiquitous computing and, on the other, whose economy and governance is being driven by innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship, enacted by smart people.

With SMART CITY LABS we explore how to enable an entirely novel and empowering genre of mobile computing usage called citizen science. We investigate how such citizen science can be used collectively across neighbourhoods and communities to enable individuals to become active participants and stakeholders as they publicly collect, share, and remix measurements of their city that matter most to them. We further demonstrate the impact of this new participatory urbanism by detailing its usage within the scope of environmental awareness. Inspired by a series of field studies, user driven environmental measurements, and interviews, we present the designs for working hardware systems that expose citizen authored measurements to the community—empowering people to become true change agents.

17.1. - 15h at KLab

Smart City Labs Talk + Eco-Counter – Cyclist Monitoring.
Smart City Labs predstavitev + števec kolesarjev in pešcev.

Platforma SMART CITY LABS povezuje ljudi, informacije in tehnologijo v urbanem prostoru. Njen cilj je ustvariti skupnost, ki s pomočjo novih tehnologij gradi in razvija boljša mesta in urbane prostore. SMART CITY LABS je prostor za prebivalce mesta prihodnosti in delavnica informacijskih orodij za bolje razumevanje mesta, v katerem živimo.

Projekti in področja raziskav in razvoja SMART CITI LABS so:

  • Open Source okoljski senzorji senzorji v urbanem prostoru
  • Open Source tehnologije za štetje in nadzor prometnih tokov (pred vsem kolesarjev in pešcev)
  • Smart Data Analytics // Analiza Open Data podatkovnih zbirk
  • Izdelava Open Source aplikacij za pametne telefone, z namenom izkoriščanja vgrajenih senzorjev in zbiranja podatkov o urbanem prostoru
  • Participatorni procesi // Skupnostni projekti
  • Druge raziskave urbanega prostora
