    Smart Cities: Commercial Viability

    Integration and commercialisationFew unfulfilled technical challenges Many individual technologies trialled and proven Current solutions are low-volume, high cost

    Isolated solutions, little integration Many duplicated functions and systems

    For commercial successMust be more cost-effective than Dumb City in the long termMaximum benefit leveraged from every system and piece of dataInterchange of relevant data must be possible Security and privacy must be designed in

    Communications examplesUnified single system e.g. UK Smart Metering

    AdvantagesOnly one system to install Lower infrastructure cost ?

    Clear development path

    DisadvantagesLong time to market Already obsolete ?

    Complex specificationInflexible, inappropriate

    Multiple competing systemse.g. US Smart Metering

    AdvantagesCompetition lowers costOngoing evolutionFeatures driven by business value

    DisadvantagesCommercial access to network For other users

    Higher running costsMarket complexity

    Unifying systems for the Smart Grid

    Old thinkingStandardised communicationsPrescriptive functionalityLittle flexibility

    New thinkingOpen systems Published APIs,

    Interface at system (not device) level Connectors & plug-ins

    Example: combining data, synthetic sensors

    E.g. smart street lightMotion sensorLight sensorCommunicationsTemperature

    Primary functionEnergy saving Dimming Turns off when no traffic Turns on ahead of traffic

    Count traffic flowFeed into traffic control systemsUseful during day

    Calculate speedsTimes as vehicles pass

    Measure sunlightPV generating capacityWeather forecasting

    Unifying the System is it possible ?

    Highly complex systemsMultiple dimensions even for relatively simple functionalityEvolving technical and business interactions

    EitherDevelop comprehensive suite of standards (CEN/CENELEC/ETSI)Encourage manufacturers to build products that meet themInnovators must influence standards to facilitate new functionality

    OrDevelop open systems and APIsAllow innovation and competition to generate the solutionsWrite standards based on the solutions that work
