HOW TO ADOPT THE SYNCHRONICITY FRAMEWORK?
1.Identify your City Assets. . Cities should select which components of the existing city infrastructure, have to be connected with the SynchroniCity framework. It is necessary to identify which datasets should be exposed following the Synchronicity specifications: these datasets can include, for instance, IoT real-time data, historical data and open data.
2.Implement SynchroniCity API. It will be necessary to be compliant with the SynchroniCity API. The API can be implemented progressively, in different steps, depending on the technical infrastructure of your city. Security and the Context Management APIs are the basic ones. SynchroniCity project provides existing software components to simplify and speed up this phase.
3.Harmonise Data Models. In order to be part of the SynchroniCity ecosystem, all cities need to provide a common semantic level using the same data models. SynchroniCity defines and reuses a set of standard data models for different smart city domains. A new city should adapt its own data models to the SynchroniCity ones.
4.Be part of the SynchroniCity Marketplace. SynchroniCity has the aim of creating an IoT-enabled smart city digital single market. In order to achieve this objective SynchroniCity provides a common marketplace for IoT data and IoT products in which city data can be offered to different stakeholders through specific business models, with or without monetisation models.
