As urbanisation continues, two-thirds of the world's population is expected to live in cities by 2050. With the resulting increase in population density, there will also be ever greater demands on urban infrastructure.
The "Smart Cities" approach tries to enable a more efficient use of the existing urban infrastructure by collecting and analysing large amounts of data in public spaces.
In this seminar, concepts and technologies (especially information and communication technologies, ICT) on the topic of smart cities are dealt with. This includes methods for data collection and evaluation, as well as approaches to make smart city infrastructures more resilient to crises and anomalies in the operational process with the help of ICT.
