Security for smart and safe cities, including for public spaces
Description of call
"Security for smart and safe cities, including for public spaces "
The security and good operation of a smart and safe city relies on interconnected, complex and interdependent networks and systems: public transportation networks, energy, communication, transactional infrastructure, civil security and law enforcement agencies, road traffic, public interest networks and services. Such networks provide with an efficient infrastructure for detection resources and "big data" collection. Proposals under this topic should develop and integrate experimentally, in situ, the components of an open platform for sharing and managing information between public service operators and security practitioners of a large, smart city.
