Professor Antonio Skarmeta of the University of Murcia presented the paper entitled “An Open Architecture for IoT Data Analytics in Smart Cities” in the context of The Global Wireless Summit (GWS) 2017, held in Cape Town, South Africa.
The paper presents a novel platform for smart city deployments. The proposed framework helps in the organization and utilization of extracted information coming from different communication technologies and sensors deployed in cities, standardizing the way that data comes from very varied sources offering built-in features to support advanced data analytics. The platform suitability is tested through its application in a smart city scenario for urban dynamics detection based on data from a well-known Online Social Network platform.
The Global Wireless Summit (GWS) is a premier annual conference series, technically sponsored by the IEEE South Africa Session Joint Chapter on Communications and Signal Processing. It covers the latest advances in wireless communication technologies and enjoys a worldwide participation rate of about 400 leading experts.
