Leveraging Live Data to Realize the Smart Cities Vision
Owing to Internet of Things (IoT), the volume of Live Data is expected to grow exponentially for the foreseeable future. In this regard, a recent Cisco report (from June 2017) mentioned, in part, the following:
- There will be 3.5 networked devices per capita and 27.1 billion networked devices by 2021. Live internet video will make up 13% of internet video traffic by 2021 and grow 15-fold from 2016.
- A connected factory will generate 1 petabyte per day.
- IDC is predicting 44 zettabytes of newly created data by 2020 and 165 zettabytes by 2025
- Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) traffic will increase 20-fold between 2016 and 2021 globally, a compound annual growth rate of 82%.
The above highlights the dire need for a generic high throughput and ultra-low latency messaging and reactive platform which can democratize the availability of Live Data and real-time processing. To this end, Satori recently announced its Live Data platform which can potentially be leveraged in a very wide variety of domains. For instance, Satori’s platform can be used to help realize the promise of Smart Cities along the following fronts:
- Transportation: Fleet and traffic management, smart logistics, smart roadways, connected vehicles
- Safety: Emergency response, pedestrian and bike safety, crime forecasting, flood detection
- Environment: Energy efficiency, air quality, water management, smart street lighting
In this talk, Francois will walk the audience through the architecture of Satori, its salient features and a concrete country-scale case study. In particular, Satori has partnered with the New Zealand Transportation Agency (NZTA) to deliver a Mobility as a Service (MaaS) Marketplace of smart city apps and services that reduce traffic congestion in high-growth urban areas. Satori is closely collaborating with public agencies and private transit agencies in New Zealand for NZTA’s MaaS project. In collaboration with site planners, data managers, and city administrators, Satori is coalescing streaming data feeds from all transportation data sources into a single live and reactive open data channel for the entire country of New Zealand.

A Smart City is an Illusion without a practical foundation
The high-minded concept of the ‘Smart City’ is a righteous, amazing thing… but we are all guilty of trying too hard to be everything, everywhere far too fast. As a result of overthinking it, nothing is happening and we are working in the trenches to accumulate the thousands of small wins that are needed to transform the promise of creating smarter cities into reality.
The Smart Citizen’s role in creating a Smart City
- How to get buy in from citizens and the benefits of doing so.
- What do citizens want from a connected government in today’s digital world vs. what are priorities for government implementation?
- The sharing economy and the effect on smart cities – for example how Uber will affect Smart Mobility.
- How to get a quadruple helix cooperation model to work.
- Gamification and VR to encourage civil engagement in Smart City initiatives.
- Evaluating the success and quantified benefits of a smart city to the citizen and the city
Panel: Driving investment in the Connected City
- What is driving investment in smart cities?
- The Zero Capex City – minimising entry costs and thinking about short, medium and long term funding and sustainability strategies.
- Discussing the wide variety of funding opportunities available from sources such as Economic Development Groups and EU wide initiatives such as Horizon 2020.
- What is the role of data in generating revenue for connected cities?
- Partnering with Global Businesses – Private Public Partnerships – benefits and limitations.
