COOCK Open City Workshop: Learnings from international and local smart city initiatives

27 April 2021 @ 10:00 12:00 CEST

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 three) is built up as follows:
• We start with an overview of state-of-the-art data platforms and which interoperability principles are followed.
• Next, the learnings of rolling out a network of air quality sensors in the Smart Zone in Antwerp will be explained.
• Finally, the processes, tooling and used semantic standards of the City of Things projects Databroker, MoDi and ANPR are explained.

The contact person for this workshop is Katelijne Vervaet (imec).
