Open City projects aims at large scale access control management. Large amount of data is generated by IOT devices installed in the city but its limited usage and difficult accessibility has lead to under utilization of resources and huge expenditure for e and the government. If we could create a system where such sensitive data is uploaded and the owner of the data could decide who should be provided access then it would be of great help. We could get real time update of the traffic with the cameras installed outside buildings and we could manage the traffic better. We can have automated surveillance mechanisms built.
There is great advantage of building such a system, but there are equally large challenges involved. Misuse of open ended data could lead to people losing trust from the system.
Open City aims at building a system that would share relevant data based on some events and triggers and only to types of people defined by the owner of the data.
