Towards personalized smart city guide services in future internet environments
The FI-CONTENT project aims at establishing the foundation of a European infrastructure for developing and testing novel smart city services. The Smart City Services Platform will develop enabling technology for SMEs and developer to create services offering residents and visitors to cities smart services that enhance their city visit or daily life. We have made use of generic, specific and common enablers to develop a reference implementation, the Smart City Guide web app. The basic information is provided by the Open City Database, an open source specific enabler that can be used for any city in Europe. Recommendation as a Service is an enabler that can be applied to lots use cases, here we describe how we integrated it into the Smart City Guide. The uses cases will be iteratively improved and upgraded during regular iterative cycles based on feedback gained in lab and field trials at the experimentation sites. As the app is transferable to any city, it will be tested at a number of experimentation sites.
