Workshop on OGC Sensor Web Enablement Technologies for SmartCities

Monday, 2012-11-12

Sensors are becoming a fundamental technology for "Smart City" management. Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards will be an important foundation driving the development of future urban applications based on sesnsor technology by making sensors and sensor data discoverable, accessible, useable and shareable. Standards make it possible to protect investments, reduce likelihood of dead-end technologies and ensure scalability. All these aspects have to be taken into account in SmartCity design and implementation.

The purpose of this hands-on workshop is to review the SWE standards, presenting results and experience on real implementataions, and to practice with the most advanced software to acquire new skills in this field.

This workshop is in the framework of the SmartCity Expo - World Congress 2012, Barcelona, November 12-13, 2012.
