COOCK Open City Workshop: Connecting, Storing, and Publishing Sensor Data

2 February 2021 @ 09:00 11:00 CET

An open city allows urban challenges to be tackled using data. On the one hand, data must be shared in a uniform and scalable manner so that it forms the foundation for building specific views for a particular domain. On the other hand, the data (especially in the case of sensors as a data source) must be of sufficiently high quality so that true visualization models can be built. All these aspects are dealt with in a bottom-up, three-part COOCK workshop. 

This workshop (part one) is organized as follows: ​ 

  • We will start with a practical look at connecting sensors in the smart city. ​ 
  • We will continue with the different levels of interoperability to store and unlock this data and how this works concretely within the infrastructure of IDLab (Internet and Data science Lab). ​ 
  • Finally, research results will be shared about publishing real-time data as open data. ​
