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.

Seminar in partnership with INES 2.0: O ecossistema da plataforma InterSCity.

On June 26th, 2017, InterSCity and INES 2.0 had another issue of their periodic joint seminar when Arthur Del Esposte discussed the InterSCity platform. The seminar was transmitted in realtime and may be watched on YouTube.

Resumo: Apesar dos vários avanços nas tecnologias de middleware para suporte às Cidades Inteligentes do futuro, ainda não existem plataformas amplamente aceitas. A maioria das soluções existentes não oferece a flexibilidade necessária para serem compartilhadas entre as cidades.
