NGI Explorers - An EU-USA Webinar on Smart Cities & Regions for International Collaboration

The webinar is organised by NIST (USA) and NGI Explorers (EU) for the international smart cities and regions community. In this webinar, we are going to briefly discuss the future for Smart Cities in Europe and USA and introduce an initiative funded by NGI Explorers (EU Fellowships to the US) on how technologies like IoT, AI, Big Data and others can be used for smart city innovation. A focus part on this webinar is an introduction of innovative results in the field of Smart City KPI Methods for Measuring the impact of the technology in cities and also as a Self-Assessment method for evaluating community impact or digital inclusion. We will briefly discuss a roadmap for this innovation and finally how a smart city in Ireland (as an example) is following the methodology to advance in their Smart City development strategy.

FED4FIRE+ Webinar | Wireless testbed w-iLab.t
The w-iLab.t testbed enables all kinds of wireless, IoT, and 5G research. It provides more than 200 nodes in various environments (industrial environment, office, datacenter) with up to data WIFI hardware, user-defined radios, mobile nodes and IoT devices. The experimenter has full control over all of them.
This webinar will provide an overview of the w-iLab.t resources such as wireless fixed and mobile nodes, IoT, officelab and portable testbed and a hands-on tutorial on using the testbed.

The intended audience is hands-on experimenters who want to use (large) testbeds to put their research on a higher level. Background required: basic Linux know-how and know-how to use ssh to log in on a remote computer.
