AbstractThe concept of “smart city” has attracted considerable attention lately. Still, common definitions are hard to find, and there is a lack of formal models to guide their design. This paper introduces the architecture of Event-driven Smart City, the kind of city where digital artifacts enable the interoperability between Internet of Services, Internet of Things and Internet of People in order to empower inhabitants to quickly react to a larger variety of events, even remotely and using fewer resources than before. Configurability of actions to be carried out automatically when events happen is considered here as core requirement for a smart city. We also explore the usability of the latest advances in Event-driven SOA and Semantic Web technologies to implement smart cities as systems based on the proposed architecture.
