Smart Cities

Senior Scientist

Our research contributes to better informed and more optimal provisioning and use of the infrastructures and services of importance to the society by means of ICT. Infrastructures and services for smart transport and logistics and smart energy management are emphasized. Our motivation is to ensure sustainability of the modern society.

Smart cities are examples of extremely large and long lived systems-of-systems, which are shaped and comes into being through evolutionary incremental growth rather than upfront design.

In the smart cities of the future, systems must collaborate and coordinate and things must be able to play a role in several systems. For example, an electric vehicle belongs to the transportation system, but while it is parked it may also be part of the electricity supply system.
