SUMMARY REMARKS & TESTBEDS
The objective of this proposal is to test an open innovation enabler for cities by using smart city testbeds within the FED4FIRE+ ecosystem. The enabler composed of two main parts: i) tool for creating communication bridges to collect and interpret data from multiple heterogeneous sources in the city ii) tool for rapidly composing services on top of the available data exposed by sensors and available actions exposed by actuators. FED4FIRE+ will contribute to evaluate our tools based on real data coming out of the SmartSantander testbed environment. We will assess the correct gathering of data and the experience of usage of the tools we are providing (e.g., learning curve) by different stakeholders such as application developers and city IT staff in order to help them turning their various data sources into a common understandable data and actions lake on top of which they can rapidly build innovative applications.
