A Development Framework for Smart City Services: Integrating Smart City Service Components
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
With advent of smart cities, information and communication technology is increas- ingly transforming the way city municipalities and city residents organize and op- erate in response to urban growth. In this thesis, we create a generic development framework that can help in the development and deployment of smart city services. The prototype development framework integrates soft real time data with simula- tion system. The motivation for integration with a simulation system is to act as decision support for the real system, understand and estimate how future changes in the real system can affect the current system with its new change.As proof of concept, we applied our proposed system to a specific city and a specific city service. Our target city is Skelleftea, Sweden, while our target service is waste management service. The designed system is tailored to support and optimize waste management operation and the system primarily uses a single metric data acquired from recycle bins, which indicates level of wastes in bins. The designed system consists of components such as data retrieval system, a RESTful web service, simulation system, web based monitoring application system for waste management company and mobile application for city inhabitants.
