  • Unpacking Dublin as an emergent smart city - Smart Dublin
    smart cities and the Internet of Things while coping at the same time with the limited role of the public sector in urban transformation due to the recent recession and related austerity drive and the commensurate need to reduce the costs of public services The new smart city atmosphere created and promoted through SD shows the following interrelated features marking a significant change in the how Dublin tackles governance and innovation a challenge driven form of urban innovation it reframes the procurement relations between public and private sector to mobilise resources focused on problems instead of solutions and to establish shared governance practices and standards a test bedding approach urban space becomes a distributed laboratory in which to test smart city technologies based on big data and the Internet of Things creating test sites that might help solve challenges faced by Dublin allowing to explore smart city solutions in a space small enough to trial and wide enough to prove mutable scales a shift from the Dublin city core to the Dublin city region scale as a joint endeavour of the four local authorities This changes to the scale of networked cities when confronting with the global settings such as in the case of Open Agile Smart Cities A number of recently initiated ProgCity case study projects aim to explore how these changes affect Dublin urban space and management starting from the settings where the new forms of procurement and test bedding are generated and adopted The objective is to understand how smart city management ideas circulate and interact with the adoption of smart technologies thus shaping Dublin organizational technological and everyday settings Research will focus on different processes occurring in test bed and procurement accidental smart urbanism through multiple co existing co evolving and conflicting forms of algorithmic governance applied to traffic control environmental monitoring and crowd management anticipation and demonstration as coordination devices and performative devices how procurement and testbedding embody and enact anticipation and demonstration dynamics how they interact with the spatial change of scale of Dublin and perform its specific material social cultural urban arrangements and finally how they make sense of accidental and fragmented smart city landscape Two other projects are looking at existing and emerging Smart City case studies in Dublin Real Time Passenger Information RTPI this looks at the interaction between code and space resulting from the implementation of this technology into Dublin s transport systems This case study will seek to examine a real world data assemblage in relation to how data flows interact with spatial flows Smart Districts this work follows an emerging project that seeks to harness the large scale urban developments in the Dublin Docklands as an exemplar for trialling smart technologies This will look at how smart technologies become part of urban masterplanning in the context of a large urban development with many actors involved in planning and decision making These two projects will examine real world examples of transduction and translation how the city interacts with code

  • Affordable Solution to Flood Monitoring - Smart Dublin
    collected from the sensors can provide vital information in relation to the behaviour of our rivers how they flow and how these flows are affected by rainfall Past heavy rainfall events can be analysed to reveal the effect on water levels at various points in the catchment When used as a predictive tool this data can allow authorities and individuals to react pre emptively rather than reactively to predicted heavy rainfall Prof Fiona Regan Director of the DCU Water Institute said The sensor data can inform us where we need to build flood defences and ultimately it could be connected to a smart system of automated flood defence barriers that would erect themselves automatically once a warning signal alerting dangerous water levels was received Fiona goes on to say We need to integrate our data streams so that we have the best information getting to the end users agencies or public to inform them in the best way possible This innovative collaboration was made possible through Dublin City Council s Smart City programme which encourages a collaborative approach to solving city challenges Dublin is positioning itself as an ideal testbed for smart and innovative technologies A centralised smart city co ordination function was established in 2015 to facilitate the deployment of new technology opportunities in particular in the area of Internet of things IoT and big data Dublin City Council s Smart City Lead Jamie Cudden is extremely impressed with the initial results saying This is a perfect smart city collaboration where the city council s flooding engineers are working alongside an Irish MMC Kingspan and a local university DCU to experiment and test a low cost flood monitoring solution that is fraction of the price of currently available equipment The potential this solution offers is enormous as moving forward we could deploy multiple units across problem catchments to better predict and communicate flood risk to residents For further information please contact Dan O Neill at PSG Plus M 0871232182 T 01 6342549 E dan oneill psgplus ie Or Grainne Mooney at DCU M 087 227 0002 P 01 700 8518 E Grainne Mooney dcu ie About DCU Water Institute The drive for DCU Water Institute reflects the population increase and economic growth the globe has seen over the past years and our changing water needs Our goals are to improve and enhance basic knowledge of physical chemical biological and chemical processes in aquatic systems We will develop and promote methodologies for water management and inform policy based on a foundation of science engineering and computing technologies About Kingspan Sensor Kingspan Sensor offers award winning monitoring and measurement solutions We design simple and stable solutions and pride ourselves for having one of the world s most advanced and effective web based reporting platforms Kingspan Sensor not only offers visibility and control through data for businesses and consumers across the globe we offer it cost effectively To find out more about these and other monitoring solutions visit www kingspansensor com About
