Abstract

The idea of Smart Cities is gaining traction worldwide. It refers to use of current-day technologies, especially Internet of Things (IoT) to provide better governance in urban areas. Several governments across states have initiated some form of Smart City drive. The initiative undertaken by the Indian government, describes a Smart City as an effort to provide for the aspirations and needs of the citizens, an urban eco-system, represented by the four pillars of comprehensive development: institutional, physical, social and economic infrastructure


Goals

The aim is to create a decentralized architecture that ensures that the data owners have a say in the audience and use case of their data. It is important to define privileges one must have to access a piece of data. The bottom up approach attempts to ensure transparency and accessibility of data to the stakeholders. The stakeholders involved in such a system include the government or the rule makers, the owners of the sensors and the data, the owners of the application the that use the data and the consumers of the data generated by the application
