Internet of Things for Smart Cities: Technologies, Big Data and Security (SpringerBriefs in Electrical and Computer Engineering)

Buy

This book introduces the concept of smart city as the potential solution to the challenges created by urbanization. The Internet of Things (IoT) offers novel features with minimum human intervention in smart cities. This book describes different components of Internet of Things (IoT) for smart cities including sensor technologies, communication technologies, big data analytics and security.

The concept of the smart city was introduced as the potential solution to the challenges posed by urbanization. The definitions for smart city involve the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) to enhance the quality of urban life with reduced cost and resource consumption. Recently, the convergence of ICT in the Internet of Things (IoT) has been envisioned in order to provide novel features with minimum human intervention in smart cities. Many modern cities already have great economy, governance, mobility, and environment. However, implementing IoT into these characteristics will allow them to advance further and improve the outcomes of their operations. Common smart solutions for such operations include but not limited to: traffic management, electricity grids, public transit, businesses, water production and consumption, etc. With the integration of IoT in future cities, large amounts of data from different applications can be generated for various solutions and technologies. It is critical for cities to find the best infrastructure based on the output data in order to deliver reliable, secure, and cost-effective services.

Normative Externalism
Normative Externalism
Normative Externalism argues that it is not important that people live up to their own principles. What matters, in both ethics and epistemology, is that they live up to the correct principles: that they do the right thing, and that they believe rationally. This stance, that what matters are the correct principles, not one's...
