Project title: PRUV - Preparedness and Resilience to address Urban Vulnerability

The challenge posed by urban vulnerability is immense and is being compounded by rapid unplanned urbanisation, climate change and resource pressures. While the realisation that there is a fundamental shift in the landscape of crises to cities is no longer contested, aid actors are nonetheless grappling with the complexities of adapting their approaches to the urban context. The Preparedness and Resilience to address Urban Vulnerability (PRUV) Consortium aims to inform the pressing need to reshape how humanitarian action and development aid is undertaken in urban areas to address the challenge posed by urban vulnerability.

Project title: City4Age - Elderly-friendly City services for active and healthy ageing

The main objective of City4Age is to enable Ambient Assisted Cities or Age-friendly Cities, where the urban communities of elderly people living in Smart Cities are provided with a range of ICT tools and services that - in a completely unobtrusive manner - will improve the early detection of risks related to cognitive impairments and frailty while they are at home or in the move within the city. The second objective is to provide a range of associated tools and services which will mitigate the detected risks. The final objective of C4A is to define a model which will provide sustainability and extensibility to the offered services and tools by addressing the unmet needs of the elderly population in terms of (i) detecting risks related to other health type problems, (ii) stimulating and providing incentives to remain active, involved and engaged, (iii) creating an ecosystem for multi-sided market by matching needs and their fulfillments, (iv) contributing to the design and operation of the ultimate Age-friendly City, where the city itself provides support for detecting risks and providing interventions to those affected by mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and frailty.

Project title: ICSI - Intelligent Cooperative Sensing for Improved Traffic Efficiency

The architecture of the ICT infrastructure for supporting Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) is purely hierarchical, with sensed data flowing from the leaves (i.e., road-side or vehicle-installed sensors) to the root (i.e., the traffic management centre). The current approach does not scale adequately with the inclusion of a significant number of new elements, is not flexible in supporting an incremental growth or changes of the ITS and exhibits latency and security issues. In ICSI we tackle all these issues by proposing a new architecture where the intelligence for sensing and actuation is distributed over some of the elements, called gateways, which host a software platform for running ITS applications, using the local storage and computation capabilities available. Communication with the remote centre happens only for the transmission of aggregated data for long-term operations, e.g., data mining, software upgrades, and logging. The approach proposed in ICSI enables scientific and technological innovations: advanced sensing algorithms will be defined, which make use of real-time availability of data; efficient distribution of context-rich data lays the foundations for novel traffic and travel management strategies.

Project title: IES Cities - Internet Enabled Services for the Cities across Europe

IES Cities is the last iteration in a chain of inter-related projects promoting user-centric and user-provided mobile services that exploit open data and user-supplied data. The technical components and achievements of several former European projects will be integrated to assemble an open Linked Data apps-enabling technological platform. Such platform will be deployed in different cities across Europe, allowing the citizens to produce and consume internet-based services (apps) based on their own and external open data related to the cities. Something especially remarkable about IES Cities is that no project before has considered so much the extent of the impact that the users may have on improving the open data in which services are usually based. The user-centred approach is a must for the success of the project. The target groups of the project will be citizens, SMEs, ICT-Developing companies and public administration.
