Smart Cities Featured Project

Developed by the Smart Cities Council, a recognized leader in smart cities education, Smart Cities Week® 2015 highlighted the best practices for breaking down barriers to progress and instilling a culture of collaboration – cross-cutting solutions that public officials can use to improve livability, workability, and sustainability in their communities. Showcased were demonstrations of the next wave of innovative, integrated technologies that are helping cities save money, build more robust economics and enhance citizens’ lives.

Transit-Hub: Smart Decision Support System for Public Transportation

 Dr. Abhishek Dubey (VU-ISIS) - pictured far left - discusses the Transit Hub Cyber-Physical Systems research (funded by NSF) during his participation in the Smart Cities Week® 2015 Global City Team Champion and Smart Mobility sessions.

The promise of smart cities initiative lies in the use of technology for enriching the lives of residents by empowering them to make efficient and informed decisions and help alleviate complex issues. One such issue that is universally faced by large cities of the world is the problem of commuter traffic. Solutions are difficult, partly because so much of our physical infrastructure was designed for a different era - when no one could imagine just how many cars would hit the streets each day, and partly because options like mass transit and adopting car shares, biking, and walking are seen by many as "trading down" making their commute less convenient.
