Intelligent Transportation and Smart Communities share the same needs. Starting with the apex event of the Intelligent Transportation spacecraft landing on Comet 67p, the strategic requirements of the field are reviewed with new insights.
At 11:00 a.m. Wednesday Nov 12th: a transporter from Earth landed on a frozen rock half-a-billion kms away. Rosetta landed on Agilkia, ‘the island of time’, named after an ancient Egyptian site. The theme refers to our desire to unlock the Rosetta Stone of the universe. If we’re looking for “Intelligent Transportation”, it doesn’t get any better than this! For us, the Island of Time also refers to the compression of time, as we push to find transportation solutions in time to keep our communities functioning!
Nov 7: The new circulator has the potential to double the useful bandwidth in wireless communications by enabling full-duplex functionality, meaning devices can transmit and receive signals on the same frequency band at the same time
Major Wi-Fi news hit mainstream media this week with CNN Money reporting that ‘you may not need a mobile carrier by 2020’. I think that may well be true. The technology to do just that is here already: Hotspot 2.0 (somebody described Hotspot 2.0 as ‘the most important technology you’ve never heard of’) now allows consumers to roam seamlessly between Wi-Fi networks in San Jose, San Francisco, London UK, and even to some hotels. Extrapolate that to 5 years from now? I think we’re in for a new paradigm in wireless and the transformation is happening right now. A recent study by US Wi-Fi service provider iPass reports one public hotspot per 150 people growing to one per 20 people on this planet by 2018. Meanwhile, Ericsson this week announced a new 30,000 AP managed services Wi-Fi deal with Indian operator O-zone. Public Wi-Fi is everywhere.

Transportation and the Island of Time
Intelligent Transportation brings Humankind’s
existence to the attention of the universe.
From Smart Cities to Intelligent Communities:
Adding “Strategic Community Alignment™”
Smart City 1.0
Focus: Automating the Functions
Smart/Intelligent Community 2.0
Focus: Coordinated/Connected Strategy
What is a Smart City?
Common elements of city visions
Common city challenges
• Growing population
• Aging population
• Economic prosperity
• Health and inequality
• Skills and market access
• Job creation and retention
• Infrastructure stress
• Public sector budget
• Changing service needs
• Climate change
• Resource scarcity
• Energy resilience
“The overwhelming core focus of the visions is an
improvement of local quality of life.
Following on from this, and linked to it, are
improvements in economic opportunity,
community engagement and integration; and a
reduction in environmental footprint”
Detailed analysis of the Future Cities Demonstrator Feasibility Studies, produced for the Technology Strategy Board by Arup Limited, 25 April 2013
The Result For Transportation
• Can’t build our way out of this – need Smart City solutions
• Have to prepare for massive increase in data flows (and extract meaning better)
• Rise of Open Data (Obama mandated)
• Infrastructure deficit means creative funding
• Transportation can borrow from the future
• New data-centric Transportation/Smart Champion needed
• Chief Mobile Data Officer: responsible for sharing city (mobile) data with the public,
facilitating the sharing of information between City departments, and analyzing how data
sets can be used to improve city decision making
• Keep up with the newest solutions!
It’s Mostly About “Intelligent End Points”
• Today vehicles are the mobile networking points, tying in people and
things in a moving fabric of communications
• People now choose their cars mostly on the vehicles ability to support
their communications devices
• The single most valuable part of a car, is the information harness
around the engine
• 80% of the innovation that goes into an automobile, goes into the
Why “Keeping Up With Solutions” Is So Key
• Limitations of Spectrum: Radio wave circulator, U of Texas
• Can double the useful wireless spectrum with full-duplex
• Cost of Infrastructure
• AT&T doing 40,000 in next 2 years alone
• Reduced Travel: High bandwidth for work & healthcare
• Operational Revolutions: Do we need carriers?
Organizational Transformation for
• Collaboration across silos
• And measure it
• Freedom for creativity
• For procurement and to
• Incorporation of Innovation
• Senior leaders champion
and reward innovation
• Car Design: smaller central console, better drive dynamics
• Driving Experience: distance optimization, health sensors
• Infrastructure: E-Vehicles talk to E-grids, route optimization
