Urban Computing for a Sustainable Future: Some Research Directions for Greener and Safer CitiesSpeaker: Muhammad Aamir Cheema – Melbourne, VIC, Australia
Topic(s): Applied Computing
AbstractIn this talk, we will discuss some important research directions in urban computing focusing on data management and analytics techniques to create sustainable, safe, and resilient cities. First, we will explore the use of electric vehicles and bidirectional charging to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, minimise operational costs and support electricity grid. Next, we will discuss the use of big spatiotemporal data collected from smartphones mounted in vehicles to reduce greenhouse gas emissions on roads and improve road safety by automatically identifying risky road conditions and unsafe driving behaviors. We will then examine the use of indoor data management for smart buildings. This includes pathfinding, emergency evacuation, location-based services, mobility analytics, and other technologies that can improve the functionality and safety of buildings. These technologies can help reduce energy consumption and improve building sustainability. Finally, we will explore the use of digital twins to reduce the carbon footprint of cities and buildings. This involves creating digital replicas of cities and buildings to understand and analyse the impact of various interventions on energy consumption and emissions. This technology can be used to optimize sustainability strategies and make cities more resilient. The presentation of these research directions will be done at a high level, making it accessible to attendees without significant existing expertise in these areas.
