Enabling the Future Internet for Smart Cities

Enabling the Future Internet for Smart Cities

The Future Internet will integrate large-scale systems constructed from the composition of thousands of distributed services, while interacting directly with the physical world via sensors and actuators, which compose the Internet of Things.

Defesa de mestrado: INvestigate and Analyze a CITY – INACITY
23 Apr 2018 | 10:00 | IME-USP

Candidato: Artur André A. M. Oliveira
Orientador: Prof. Dr. Roberto Hirata Jr.

Este trabalho apresenta uma plataforma para coleta e análise de imagens urbanas, que integra Interfaces de Programação de Aplicativos “Application Programming Interfaces (APIs)” de sistemas de busca de imagens, Sistemas de Informações Geográficas (SIGs), mapas digitais e técnicas de visão computacional. Esta plataforma, INACITY, permite que usuários selecionem regiões de interesse e capturem elementos de relevância para a arquitetura urbana, como, por exemplo árvores e buracos em ruas. A implementação da plataforma foi feita de maneira a permitir que novos módulos possam ser facilmente incluídos ou substituídos possibilitando a introdução de outras APIs de mapas, SIGs e filtros de Visão Computacional. Foram realizados experimentos com as imagens obtidas através do “Google Street View” onde árvores são capturadas em áreas de bairros inteiros em questão de minutos, um ganho significativo quando comparado com o procedimento manual para levantamento deste tipo de dado. Além disso, também são apresentados resultados comparativos entre os métodos de visão computacional propostos para a detecção de árvores em imagens com outros métodos heurísticos, em um conjunto onde as árvores estão marcadas manualmente e assim as taxas de precisão e de redescoberta de cada algoritmo podem ser avaliadas e comparadas.

Social Housing and Sprawl: The Minha Casa Minha Vida Case

When: Monday, May 14th, 2018, 10:00 AM.

Where: Auditório do CCSL-IME/USP.

Speaker: Ciro Biderman (FGV-SP)

Abstract: We analyze the impacts on the urban form of a large Brazilian public housing program—Programa Minha Casa Minha Vida (PMCMV). Our aim in this paper is to determine whether the program impacts urban sprawl and its trend.  We analyze 18 metropolitan areas using satellite images and other datasets to compare municipalities where the program was more intense with municipalities where the program produces housing below the median.


The Plug & Network paradigm: a new way of designing networks

When: Friday, March 23th, 2018, 9:00 AM.

Where: Sala H-312C, GTA/UFRJ.

The objective of this presentation is to introduce the new paradigm that will be used from 2020:  the “Plug &Network” concept. This concept allows to derive new network architectures ranging from a completely centralized architecture to a fully distributed solution. We will examine the pros and cons of these different architectures to try to imagine architectures that should be deployed in the 2020s.
