Implementing a Holistic Approach for the Smart City

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8610)


Extending the services offered by the city requires, most of the times, reimplementation efforts. This paper presents our on-going efforts to develop a platform for the Smart City that focuses in providing the appropriate solutions for an easy integration of new services and devices. This endeavor is accomplished by abstracting communication issues using a middleware platform and by standardizing the way services are instantiating.
