city where enterprise and social collaboration thrive helping its people live, learn and work better by using leading technology” Mission “To create the sustainable environment that will enable our businesses, communities and citizens to learn, create and prosper in an open and collaborative way, through the provision of city governance, platforms, and spaces, which integrate and leverage intelligence across our communities”
processes and integrating our multiple city systems that will make the city work better and deliver social, economic and environmental value. This regards cities as a 'system of systems' that needs to be addressed holistically. • Digital - Securing investment in modern digital infrastructure new urban and smart technologies and intelligent smart systems of future internet of things that will help us manage what we do more efficiently – technology enabled not technology driven • Data – Open access approach to public re-useable data, recognising information and inclusion are key assets • Citizen Engagement - Placing citizens and businesses need at the heart of the decision making process to shape and design services
our internal capability across our various research groups to support BCU efforts in this area. The purpose of BCU Smart Cities Working Group is to identify how a City can leverage information and communication technologies (ICT) and digital connectivity to enhance the quality and performance of city services, reducing costs and resource consumption, and to engage more effectively and actively with citizens. The working group is concerned with how to use data and technology to create efficiencies, improve sustainability, create economic development, and enhance quality of life factors for people living and working in the city
Practice (TTN). oGroup of Academics, students and public around Birmingham city. oOur mission is to provide the entire city of Birmingham with Internet of Things data connectivity by crowdsourcing the network by its users. • https://www.thethingsnetwork.org/community/birmingham
the entire city of Birmingham with Internet of Things data connectivity by crowdsourcing the network by its citizens and local companies. Phase 1: “Building the Network” – Nov 17 – Feb 18 (Completed): 2 LoRaWAN gateways have been deployed cross the city of Birmingham. Phase 2: Mar 18- Sept 18: 3 LoRaWAN gateways have been deployed in various location within the city of Birmingham. Phase 3: Mar Jan 19 June 19 (Ongoing): 2 LoRaWAN gateways are being deployed in various location within the city of Birmingham to extend our private coverage.

platform created by a team of established academics and students at Birmingham City University. In the context of cities, the vision of CityGate platform is to collect, integrate and analyse big data to improve urban systems and life quality that will lead to smarter and greener cities that are of great importance to billions of people. CityGate is unlocking smart city potential through connectivity management platform. CityGate focus: o Urban IoT Data acquisition. o Urban IoT Connectivity & Management. o Urban IoT Data storage. o Urban IoT Data Analytics. o Urban IoT Visualisation.

of air quality data using advanced time series analysis techniques. • Applying context-aware data analysis to trace root causes to air pollution • People Counting • Applying density-based clustering methods (e.g. DBSCAN) to trace movement of people. • Applying time series analysis to better understand the spatio-temporal crowd movement. • Inductive loop • Continuous monitoring of traffic flow, and reporting unexpected low and high flows. • Real-time analysis of the flow using advanced time series data mining methods to trace possible issues.
data model for an urban environment. o Developing predictive models for many critical applications/use cases o Developing smart solutions for several cities –challenges. o The collected data from different use cases will be publicly available for local business and research communities. o Dissemination through press releases, newsletters, conferences, and scientific journals … Training and Consultancy o Providing high quality executive training around Urban Computing area. o Providing the appropriate support to local councils, authorities and SMEs to accelerate their smart cities services development strategy. o Providing the technical support to SMEs to build their capability in this domain.
