The course is a high level introduction to the constituents of the smart cities’ digital infrastructures, from the network up to the software layers. The proposed survey highlights the technical aspects to be taken into account to create practical services and to develop smarter cities involving citizen participation. In particular, it will impart information on privacy and interoperability aspects.
The course allows you to:
understand what is a smart city and the digital technologies supporting it
identify the required skills to design, develop and deploy innovative services toward smarter cities
picture new digital services for the urban environment while capturing the technologies they rely on
apprehend the costs and impediments (both technological and societal) that may occur to deploy a new digital service in the city
investigate public participation in the development of smart cities and the technological and societal challenges that emerge from it.
Please NOTE that this course is the english version of "Défis technologiques des villes intelligentes participatives" course, initially published and run on FUN-MOOC in 2016 and 2017. The research field and the technologies presented have evolved since then, but the proposed overview remains useful. For some concepts, updated additional resources are proposed.
