IOT and ODS. Platforms of smart cities
Smart city platform can serve as a key element for the effective implementation of the actions needed to achieve the objectives.
The digital transformation represents the set of innovations that change the reality of the employees of public administrations and of the cities themselves and their citizens. To do this, all the actors in this digital transformation must understand it, and know how to adapt and see these technologies as allied tools and not as hostile elements.
The digital transformation supported by an incremental deployment of Intelligent City Platforms in the different city verticals can and must become a key element in achieving the goals proposed by the Urban Agendas 2030, being an ecosystem of solutions and standards that support and substantiate any Strategic Plan developed around the ODS, from the very Vision, Mission, Values, Action Plans, objectives, indicators, etc. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
From this perspective, an intelligent city platform should be aligned from its initial implementation with the 17 sustainable development objectives set out in Agenda 2030.
Therefore, an Intelligent City Platform should provide a technological ecosystem capable of supporting the Urban Agendas 2030, being able to integrate the information generated by the different city initiatives aimed at achieving improvements in any of the ODS and their associated goals.
To this end, there must be clear strategic and operational objectives, with defined and easily automated metrics and indicators, and adequate dashboards to provide the necessary knowledge for appropriate, proportionate and, above all, quality-driven decision-making.
IOT helps in the integration of continuous improvement, the essence of which is that if you want to improve a parameter's magnitude you have to measure it first, i.e. you cannot improve what you cannot measure.
Having an Intelligent City platform with the capacity to implement this model for generating information on the different service verticals across the city, optimising decision making thanks to the exploitation of the data collected and analysed by means of state-of-the-art solutions: Artificial Intelligence, Predictive Analysis, Bigdata and Social Bigdata, BI, ML, etc.
ELLIOT. IOT Open Source middleware with high scalability and very fast integration and with the ability to connect with any sensor, device, machinery or existing data source to extract your data.
It allows managing data in real time with high variability over time and advanced analytics using technologies such as Big Data and AI.
