The general purpose of CitiSim is devoted to the design and implementation of a new generation platform for the Smart City ecosystem.

This platform will provide a powerful monitoring and control infrastructure to enable planners to make critical management decisions on tactical and strategic levels based on the knowledge provided by the specific platform developed. For a natural interaction and better understanding of the events that happen in the city, 3D visualization techniques as augmented virtuality and augmented reality will be explored.

CitiSim will provide service developers with a set of services, standards, and tools for the development of applications for the smart city. The major expected technical outcomes in CitiSim are:

  • a platform defined by its services, protocols, and tools for supporting advanced service development
  • a 3D visualization tool for smart city monitoring and control
  • a large scale simulation framework for supporting the strategic and tactical decision process on smart cities.
