In Eindhoven DITSS developed, with partners like Atos and the State Advocate Pels Rijcken, the Smart City StarterK!t. Its purpose is to contribute to developing an innovation platform to improve the safety and security of systems and people in tomorrow’s Smart City.
About the kit
Our Smart City StarterK!t contains both non-technological instruments as well as technological solutions. Non-technological instruments are policies that municipalities can use to smooth the transition in their city; think of Open Data Principles to address ownership of publicly created data or an IoT Charter to help hardware suppliers cooperate on the equipment they install in the city.
The technology part is the translation of 5 years of application and software development into a FIWARE implementation. FIWARE is an initiative of the European Commission to facilitate Smart City developments with Open Source software and a shared reference architecture (a common framework). Using the StarterK!t enables cities to skip man-years of Living Lab research and man-months on FIWARE software development.
