The concept of Smart Cities has been growing as well as several platforms to support such demand. However, testing these platforms in real environments is often infeasible. Lack of infrastructure, cost and political questions are some of the issues that are not simple to solve. A Smart City Simulator that is scalable and able to simulate the entire infrastructure and peculiarities of a city can facilitate this kind of test.
This research aims at integrating the InterSCity platform and the InterSCSimulator simulator as they have already been presented as highly scalable open source projects. With this, the simulator will be able to send all the events that occurred within a simulation to the platform, and the platform can actuate within the simulation. In addition to assist testing some specific platform elements, such as Big Data processing and actuation modules, this will enable the development of applications using the platform without the need for physical infrastructure.
