How Cities can Plan, Deploy and Enable an IoT Lifestyle

Objective: Ensure municipalities understand options to build an IoT infrastructure that is efficient, fast and reliable in the long-term Topics addressed: • Edge computing • Dedicated IoT network • Device management • IoT data management • Partnerships with the community (public/private partnerships) The applications for the Internet of Things (IoT) and smart cities seems endless and municipalities are clamoring to be early adopters of smart city technology. From small-scale applications like smart lighting to large-scale applications like autonomous public vehicles, there are a host of critical infrastructure capabilities municipalities must consider. But where should they begin? At its heart, an IoT smart city strategy will require a robust partner ecosystem to provide a complete solution. This panel discussion will walk attendees through the end-to-end infrastructure considerations for smart city implementations. From network, to device, to data management, we will explore how IoT and smart city applications require unique solutions and infrastructure.

Fast-Track to Smart Cities: The Critical Role of Stakeholder Engagement in Designing Impactful Programs and Projects that get the Greenlight

Today communities have a broad range of technology solutions available to them many of which can help cities perform key functions and services to provide higher levels of service, save and improve the user experience of costumers and residents. But, selecting the right technology solutions can be confusing. Often these solutions have the potential to benefit multiple department or external partners and agencies which can yield exponential benefits but can also complicate the solution implementation. The panel participants will share lessons learned from smart projects and how they have managed multiple stakeholders to plan, design and implement projects across verticals in their communities.

Localization Applications beyond the AV: Big Data in Smart Cities

The development of the automated vehicle has progressed rapidly, changing the conversation and attitude around mobility. What can city officials do today to prepare for the way that their transportation systems will function in the near future? Emerging technology takes the Advanced Driver-Assist Systems from collision prevention to a new level of data collection. Converting existing assets at a very low-cost into data generating agents has the ability to empower the management of municipal assets to a whole new scale. In this panel we will discuss how to take and leverage the data from the ADAS sensor to the smart city, including real-life cases and practical operations.

Starting with Smart Streetlights, How Can City Leaders Take Control of their Urban Data Assets?

Urban data is the mosaic of street-by-street, minute-by-minute information that makes up a city’s digital twin. This data is incredibly valuable for designing better city infrastructure, delivering more efficient city services, and making everything more transparent to empower citizens. It is also potentially valuable source of city revenues. But the use of urban data has been limited by two barriers. The first is the cost of single-purpose sensors, and the related cost of moving video data to the cloud. But the main problem has been one of trust – how can the Chief Data Officer apply best-practice policies to the data, and provide transparency to citizens on how that data is protected and used?

Future of Big Open Data

Around the world, cities, states and national governments are working to share data with the public in order to provide greater transparency, increase public trust and engagement, improve internal data sharing, and engage the developer community and the private sector to develop new apps and services. Big Open Data combines the power of Open Data and scale, sharing high velocity, volume and variety of data sets. This combination of big and open has powerful implications for use in Smart Cities as evidenced by many examples of companies building business on this data. Big Open Data enables the analysis and use of large government data sets to develop new insights or services. This session asks some pressing questions about the future of Big Open Data. There are issues not only the tech stack requirements for big open data, but around the data quality and standards, and how to build services that can take advantage of massive amounts of information. This session will discuss: Examples of successful Big Open Data initiatives How AI and decentralized technologies like blockchain impact Big Open Data How the cities and the private sector can take advantage of partnerships around specific data to create mutual opportunities

The Changing Mobility Market: From 0 to 60

The mobility industry is changing a lightning speed – new mobility providers, services and sectors are cropping up daily. Yet, cities and governments – key cogs in implementing new mobility options at scale – are far behind. In a time of extreme urban innovation, how can cities and mobility companies meet consumer demand for more sustainable, efficient and seamless transportation? How likely are AVs going to be a part of the equation? What are some of the most promising mobility companies/technologies outside of unicorns like Uber and Lyft/rideshare?

How do you Charge 1000 Battery Electric Buses?

With the paradigm shift to Battery Electric Buses in urban transit the next big challenge is how to charge those fleets. While bus reliability has reached that of conventional diesel buses, the new horizon is how to charge the ever expanding fleets without causing sever load conditions on the grid. The solution lies in several emerging technologies including solar and wind to charge second life batteries which serve as an energy buffer. It also involves the development of a cloud based management system to monitor each bus and determine when to turn on charging for how long and how to identify a connected bus that tis not charging or has not been connect to the charging system. There are several versions of overhead charging systems which are being automated to accommodate large fleets of buses. In addition, many utility companies are realizing the tremendous revenue stream that is emerging and are exploring assistance such as removal of peak demand charges and providing the batteries with their amortization being included in the utility rate. The online and mobile app has been wildly successful producing 197% increase in property tax collection in Year 1 of Go-Live. myWyco has improved citizens’ ability to engage with Wyandotte County/Kansas City, and also the State of Kansas. The Unified Government has increased reach to all demographics and brought additional services and payment channels to citizens and businesses.

Personalizing Government for Every Resident

An effective smart city uses technology to make it easier for households and businesses to interact with their government. To meet this standard, a key variable is whether or not people use the technology that local government makes available. Hear from experts in government and the private sector about how we can make an everyday interaction a positive, personalized experience, and use those interactions to promote deeper engagement between a city and its residents.

Transportation in the Digital City

Transportation is one of the most impressive and rapidly changing areas of digitally disrupted city operations. The speed of the transition to autonomous / AI-guided transport will be rapid and may catch the public by surprise. Self-driving vehicles will be widely adopted by 2022, and it won’t just be cars — driverless delivery trucks, autonomous delivery drones, and personal robots will also be commonplace. Mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) offerings are likely to replace car ownership, which may displace public transport or see it transition towards similar on-demand approaches. This panel of city and technology leaders will discuss the array of mobility solutions that cities will / can adopt to alleviate congestion, pollution and loss of productivity improving the quality of life for all citizens.

Smart Infrastructure enabled by Video as a Sensor Technology

The term “smart infrastructure” encompasses a variety of different technologies to improve roadway safety, reduce congestion and cut emissions. The impending introduction of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) is an important factor for governments to consider when planning investment in new infrastructure. Several technologies are being introduced into roadway construction with the goal of delivering increased connectivity, efficiency, and safety for drivers and local inhabitants. Intelligent systems are possible only with high-quality data. Advanced video detection cameras with camera-based (edge) analytics bring intelligence to our infrastructure, while at the same time reducing system complexity and costs. Embedded security and key-management systems ensure authenticity and privacy of the data. This panel of experts and stakeholders will discuss the benefits of camera-based (edge) analytics with embedded security, and how video-based detection brings intelligence to highway and urban infrastructure, including traffic management and parking solutions, thereby increasing safety, efficiency, and overall quality of life.

Digital Transformation During a Time of Crisis: Rebuilding Joplin and Puerto Rico as Smart Communities

In 2011, a Category 5 tornado devastated Joplin, MO, and the city is in the process of concluding its rebuilding effort to mitigate the impact of the storm. Just last year, multiple hurricanes battered Puerto Rico and that island is now rebuilding all of its critical infrastructure. Both communities made the conscience choice to rebuild that infrastructure and simultaneously adjust policies and procedures to "smartify" their communities as part of the rebuilding effort. This required navigating multiple community, federal government oversight and technical challenges, and leaders from both communities will share their lessons learned from the experience. These experiences showcase the resilience, agility and vision of leaders working to better communities in times of crisis.

Getting to Smart - Maximizing your Buildings for Smart Cities

Modern building operations remains one of the best examples of an industry that is data rich but information poor. While connected systems, sensors, and apps continuously generate data, it remains stuck in individual systems or dashboards instead of interacting with data from other sources, which is where the insight lives. Beyond the building, this type of data can reveal patterns, areas for improvement, and ways to increase efficiency when applied to the community or city level. Join experts from unique perspectives as they discuss smart priorities and security risks within buildings, how data-filled dashboards are evolving, and how a high performance or smart building is the foundation of a smart city.

How the Cities are using AI for Citizen Engagement

The City of Arlington is using a next-generation citizen engagement tool to address the age-old city dilemma of rising above the noise. In this panel, Arlington's CIO will discuss how its city leaders and communicators are leveraging technology to get a broader understanding of the discourse and feelings of the city's "silent majority" as opposed to always responding to the vocal minority. Together with ZenCity, they’ll dig into how AI can help cities - from small towns to urban metropolises - to sort through the vast amount of resident discourse out there and understand what’s most important to a city's residents. We'll also discuss how, in giving the city a wide-scale view of its residents’ feedback, Arlington is using tech to increase inclusivity and testing a new model of engagement - listening to residents and using their feedback without requiring them to “opt-in” to traditional citizen engagement tools. The City of Arlington will also present real, replicable use cases demonstrating how it utilizes this feedback, the way its measuring discourse, and how this data and the insights it draws from the ZenCity platform are transformed into action.

Gun Shot Detection through LoRa backhauled Machine Learning Sensors

The City of Wichita was fortunate to discover an expert in the field of acoustical monitoring and tracking of distinct events by utilizing acoustical templates. The City has engaged company, Hueneme, at this time considered a small startup into developing an acoustic detection system. This system is specifically calibrated for firearm discharges. While the technology and use case is not novel, the approach of the City of Wichita and Hueneme to tackle this issue relies on a group of constraints that pushes us beyond the envelop of current systems. This gun shot detection device is built on a low cost hardware model, utilizing Long Range, Low Power (LoRa) network communication, edge processing, artificial intelligence and machine learning to improve on current technology and provide the city with a lower-cost and more accurate solution. We believe this solution is the first of its kind and has the potential to revolutionize intelligent policing.

Getting Smart about Trash

Using technology for good. Improving the quality of life for local residents. Making the world a better place. These are all aspirational goals of the smart city world. Technopedia.com says that ‘there is no definitive explanation of a smart city because of the breadth of the technologies that can be incorporated into a city in order for it to be considered a smart city’. Improving transportation, lowering a carbon footprint, safer streets and improved streets and roadway conditions. These are all aspects of a smarter city. But what about garbage? Can garbage and waste actually be part of a smart city solution? We think it can be and it is. There are cities all across the country - large and small - that are looking to get smarter about their trash, and turning to technology as a means of not only improving their waste and recycling methods, but improving costs, service time and yes, the overall footprint of going green.

Developing an Accessibility Driven Digital Strategy for Government

Web accessibility has become a key priority in the realm of government innovation. With the rise in ADA lawsuits over the past few years, state and local governments are increasingly seeking out technology partners that will help them meet web accessibility guidelines. But many governments don't realize how deeply entrenched inaccessibility is in their digital offerings. Most governments host hundreds of PDF forms and applications on their web pages, posing major challenges for disabled users who cannot easily see the text or modify it for assistive technologies. Additionally, these applications often need to be physically brought into a municipal office, further violating accessibility guidelines. Now more than ever, governments are seeking compliant solutions in order to provide fully accessible online services. This session will describe the implications of web accessibility for government, while exploring best practices for providing accessible online services. Drawing from SeamlessDocs' experience powering ADA, Section 508 & WCAG 2.1 compliant digital solutions, this session will describe key takeaways for governments seeking to become compliant, while also describing the risks associated with compliance failures.

Leading the “Smart City” Transformation through Strategic Approaches

Mid-size cities today have their own unique set of challenges and areas of opportunity. One of the main challenges facing mid-size cities today is the sheer volume of vendors knocking on doors at city halls, offering a dizzying array of high-tech “smart” products and services. They promise to make city government more efficient and sustainable, but with so many new technologies on the market, how can cities be sure they’re making the best choices? In addition, considering the technological sea change we’ve experienced over the last decade, how are city leaders from mid-size cities best managing for the future? In this session city leaders will explain the strategic roadmap approach: how to establish a common vision, set an order of priority for technology and data implementations, and connect smart city initiatives to community benefits such as environmental sustainability and better customer service.

Emergency Vehicle Pre-emption: A Smart City Solution

Emergency Vehicle Pre-emption (EVP) is a traffic signal control strategy used by local transportation and emergency response agencies to improve response time to incidents for fire, police and other emergency responders. The premise behind EVP is to facilitate emergency response by providing response vehicles with a green traffic signal indication as they approach an intersection. By changing the signal operations to provide a green indication, vehicles that are stopped at the intersection can be cleared before the emergency vehicle reaches the intersection, and the emergency vehicle can have a safer passage through the intersection. The City of San Jose and the City of Montreal have implemented new, cutting edge strategies that disrupt the traditional emergency vehicle pre-emption technologies that are in use by expanding the capability of their Central Traffic Management System, CAD/AVL system and communication network to manage emergency vehicle pre-emption operations. By leveraging systems that are already in place the Cities are able to have greater control over pre-emption operations, rapidly deploy the solution and realize significant cost savings while improving the safety of their citizens.

Why The Input of the Design Community Is Critical For The Evolution of "Smart City" Technology

Cities have been getting "smart" for thousands of years. From the first armed encampments to the earliest walled fortresses, to the developments of steam power, steel for vertical construction, oceangoing vessels, electricity, telegraph, telephone, the internal combustion engine, vaccines, the computer, and now the development of the autonomous vehicle, "SMART" is not a goal. It is a process. Understanding how cities have evolved, the why and how of urban design, lifestyles, commerce, attraction, and culture, can make next steps easier, more rational, and ultimately, more successful. The most important changes which the NEW SMART CITY movement brings is true of all previous changes. The rate of change keeps accelerating. The purpose of this panel discussion is to bring two superb members of the design community to exchange experiences and ideas with the technology community. Landscape Architects and City Planners have been key driving forces in the design and function of cities throughout modern history. An understanding how cities have become the marvels which they are, and how to apply these principles going forward, will make the tasks of both the technology and design communities in conjunction with each other, sequential, sensible, cost-effective, and, ultimately, much more successful.
