Abstract

Collecting urban data in a citywide scale plays a fundamental role in the research, development and implementation of smart cities. This demo introduces Cruisers, an automotive sensing platform for smart cities, which is developed based on the following ideas. a) Garbage collecting trucks are used as host automobiles to accommodate sensors, b) 3G cellular communication network is used to wirelessly deliver sensed data directly to servers, and c) Proxy server(s) are adopted to convert the format of sensed data to required ones. This platform has been deployed to 24 garbage collecting trucks at Fujisawa city, i.e., nearly 1/4 of the total number of such trucks in the city. An iOS application is also developed to demonstrate the sensing process and the covered area.
