Building Smart City Solutions through an Open and Agile Ecosystem based on FIWARE

Abstract: This tutorial will introduce to the Smart Cities ecosystem, in terms of standards, data models and technologies that has been built by the European Union and that has been adopted widely in Europe (Synchronicity) and beyond European borders such as India (FIWARE Lab), USA (NIST) and Mexico (SmartSDK).

This tutorial will introduce the Open and Agile Smart Cities principles ( and FIWARE platform ( A practical example about how to carry out a full solution integration will be carried out. In details, this tutorial will present how to connect a Smart Point of Interaction (Smart POI) device that offers different capabilities for interacting with citizens and visitors in a city, into FIWARE through the IoT Context Broker (Orion CB) for mapping into standardized data models by the ETSI ISG Context Information Management (CIM) and finally the support for the use into real applications in domains such as smart destinations, tourism, environmental monitoring / sustainability etc.

This tutorial aims to provide to the attendees the basis about how Open Source platforms are supporting Smart Cities ecosystem development, the important role of Open Data, Open Platforms, Open Standards and Open Data Models to enable Interoperability and develop scalable and replicable solutions. Finally, a practical example that covers from hardware integration / data management to platforms interoperability and integration will be presented. Finally, a visionary approach about how these solutions are being aligned and integrated with other global scale initiatives such as ETSI oneM2M / SmartM2M will be introduced.

Antonio J. Jara; Adjoint Scientifique at the University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland (HES-SO), Founder at HOP Ubiquitous S.L. ( and vice-chair of the IEEE Communications Society Internet of Things Technical Committee. He did his PhD (Cum Laude) at the Intelligent Systems and Telematics Research Group of the University of Murcia (UMU) from Spain in 2013. He received two M.S. (Hons. - valedictorian) degrees. Since 2007, he has been working on several projects related to IPv6, Security and WSNs in automation and healthcare. He is especially focused on the design and development of new protocols for security and mobility for Future Internet of things, which was the topic of his Ph.D. He did the transfer of the results from his PhD around Security in the American Company United Technologies. Nowadays, he continues working on IPv6 technologies for the Internet of Things In areas such as security, heterogeneity integration and the application of IoT in sectors such as industry 4.0, energy, and smart cities. He has also carried out a Master in Business Administration (MBA). He has published over 100 international papers (~2000 citations, h: 24), As well he holds several patents in the IoT domain. Finally, he has participated in several European Projects about Internet of Things (networking, security and intelligence distribution – fog computing) and applied Internet of Things (energy, industry 4.0 and Smart Cities).
