Emerging technology and data processing tools are transforming the cities we live in, and the way we live in them. Understanding the confluence of trends and evolving relationship between people, systems and data is key to designing for resilience in an equitable way. Globally, the Smart Cities model uses open and shared data to better understand local vulnerabilities and inform development decisions as well as the operation of physical and service infrastructure.
Smart Resilient Cities is a research project which will explore how we can best use emerging technology for Disaster Risk Reduction. The aim is to understand the use of sustainable and low cost: • State of the art sensors capable of maintaining the sensing ability of a city/region before, during and after an big disaster • Wired and wireless communication platform linking smart sensors before, during and after a big disaster • End-user accepted and trusted technology application covering users’ needs for gauging human and infrastructure impacts 1) When considering the appropriate application of emerging technologies to solve local issues, human factors and institutional aspects need to be included as essential components of the ecosystem. The initial objective of Smart Resilient cities is to engage with a cross-section of urban residents to explore: What people expect from sharing their data? How do they weigh up the trust-benefit of sharing their data?
