Cyber-Physical ICT for Smart Cities - Emerging Requirements in Control and Communications


On Demand

Duration:60 minutes


Smart infrastructure integrating currently independent systems has a great potential to improve our quality of life (QoL). Smart applications on the smart infrastructure will provide emerging services over the Internet. Information and communication technology (ICT) virtualizes the smart city infrastructure and makes it possible to control the infrastructure in an integrated manner. The infrastructure in physical space is controlled by applications in cyber space, and it is recognized as a cyber-physical system (CPS). In the development towards the smart infrastructure and applications, we must consider how to manage the quality of services (QoS) of networks, diversity, interoperability, energy efficiency, and cybersecurity as system-level requirements. The integration of communications and control technologies can play an important role in guaranteeing the various requirements. The key technologies are “control over networks” and “control of networks”. This webinar introduces emerging requirements in the cyber-physical ICT and discusses open issues for future smart infrastructure and applications from the viewpoints of both communications engineering and control engineering.
