Staying Smart: Open Source’s Role in Smart City Evolution
Yoshitake Kobayashi, Toshiba; Urs Gleim, Siemens
Power plants, radar systems, traffic lights, communications and weather systems have been part of everyday life for decades, which have made security and longevity paramount. Currently, these systems are built from scratch, with little re-use of existing software building blocks. This model drains resources and leads to fragmentation and duplication of effort. In this talk, The Civil Infrastructure Platform will showcase how it works with other open source projects to develop a super long-term supported (SLTS) open source “base layer” of industrial-grade software that enables the implementation of building blocks in civil infrastructure projects. This session will feature how open source software powers smart cities.
