Discussing Smart City Solutions with mF2C Project
The mF2C project addresses the need for an open and coordinated management of fog and cloud computing systems, which is especially relevant with the rise for smart cities.
The first day was dedicated to a technical workshop about Barcelona Supercomputing Center’s tools COMPSs and DataClay, including demos and practical examples of use.
Discussions took place to consolidate on past work and to plan the roadmap for the mF2C Proof of Concept, where SixSq is playing a major role as responsible for the integration of the platform’s building blocks.
mF2C has the following three use cases which are very relevant to smart city environments:
- Emergency Situation Management in Smart Cities
- Enriched Navigation Service
- Smart Fog-Hub Service in Airports
They will be used to demonstrate that fog computing can improve efficiency and services in everyday situtaions.
During the recent meeting, SixSq took the opportunity to talk with three of the project partners and find out why the project is important and get more insights into the use cases. You can find out more about that on our blog.
