iCity project

 iCity is a project of the  "Sportello dell'Innovazione: progetti di trasferimento tecnologico cooperativi e di prima industrializzazione per le imprese innovative ad alto potenziale”, produced in collaboration with Italdata S.p.A. and the University of Sannio and funded by Campania Region.
The project's aim is to design a monitoring and control platform  for a smart city, which integrates various subsystems and provides the citizens stakeholder all the capabilities for the optimization of internal organizational processes in order to improving the services offered to their community .
        


The project's aim is to design a monitoring and control platform  for a smart city, which integrates various subsystems and provides the citizens stakeholder all the capabilities for the optimization of internal organizational processes in order to improving the services offered to their community .

The platform will respond to interoperability, modularity and scalability criteria, based upon SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) paradigm that will be able to integrate all the several sectors of a smart city  as Mobility, Security, Energy, Environment and e Social. The iCity software architecture is multilayer: the first level, “field”, is composed by all the devices that generate information (SCADA, sensors videocameras, Environment boxes, people), the second level is a “gateway” that, through communication interfaces, collect the data from the “field” and then it brings these data to the “Middleware”, that is the core of the platform in which the data are processed and made available to the level "Application".

iCity has a central monitoring engine with a synoptic frame of the city status, providing access to the  different applications of the various domains managed by iCity, such as Energy, Mobility, Security and Social.

The activities that KES is playing as part of this project are: the design of the entire platform, the integration of "Social" and "Mobility" components, the development of the software and communication infrastructure, the implementation of the services and middleware.
