Abstract

The Smart City concept is being developed from a lot of different axes encompassing multiple areas of social and technical sciences. However, something that is common to all these approaches is the central role that the capacity of sharing information has. Hence, Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are seen as key enablers for the transformation of urban regions into Smart Cities. Two of these technologies, namely Internet of Things and Big Data, have a predominant position among them. The capacity to “sense the city” and access all this information and provide added-value services based on knowledge derived from it are critical to achieving the Smart City vision. This paper reports on the specification and implementation of a software platform enabling the management and exposure of the large amount of information that is continuously generated by the IoT deployment in the city of Santander.

2. Large Scale Smart-City Iot Deployment

As has already been mentioned, the basis for the main contribution of this paper, namely the description of the specification and implementation of the software platform enabling the management and exposure of a large amount of IoT information, is a real city-scale IoT deployment. This section will present an overview of this IoT infrastructure which is deployed in the city of Santander.
