SmartCity.4D Intellligent Infrastructure

Name of IRI project: Development of new technologies for creating 4D intelligent infrastructure in smart cities

English title of IRI project: SmartCity.4D Intelligent Infrastructure

Short description of the project:

Documentation of the existing state of the communal infrastructure is a prerequisite for proper evaluation of communal infrastructure and future investments. Current data is poor and incoherent, and the data capture method is slow and very expensive. Data collection by classical methods can take decades, which is completely unacceptable and may have a detrimental effect on the realization of new investments of any kind. Lack of information on underground and overhead infrastructure, apart from investment processes, makes it difficult to maintain and intervene on installations, which is a huge and unnecessary expense for private, public or utility companies owned by the local self-government unit (JLS). Communal infrastructure is a very important element in the development of each space, with almost every area involved in it, and in most cases without it, development is virtually impossible. Collected and edited communal infrastructure data is an important set of data in efficient management of systems that base their services on infrastructure security and availability.

The introduction of new technologies enables a significant acceleration of the data collection and interpretation process, and efficient records and management of underground and overhead communal infrastructure.

The Smart City 4D Intelligent Infrastructure (4DII) project will explore, explore and develop a system for efficient management of municipal infrastructure. The aim is to provide an innovative system for recording and managing a wide spectrum of data related to infrastructure, from the position and characteristics of each infrastructure, socio-economic indicators, and security aspects for critical infrastructure.

Proper infrastructure and space management requires accurate spatial-time records of infrastructure and tools to manage infrastructure. There is currently no record of the entire infrastructure, and what has been recorded in a good part does not fully meet the existing requirements, and available existing tools on the global market do not provide the capability to manage the spatial-time component of the infrastructure.

All infrastructure managers and units of regional and local self-government are in the interest of more efficient infrastructure management to reduce costs, increase infrastructure efficiency, attract investment, and provide better services to their users.

The 4D Intelligent Infrastructure Development Project will contribute to better infrastructure management and will result in improved processes, methodologies and services for collecting, processing, displaying and spatial-time data analysis of infrastructure.

The quality of data is very important for efficient management of municipal infrastructure. Therefore, the project will develop methodologies for collecting four-dimensional (three-dimensional space + time) data on communal infrastructure and other data on the infrastructure itself. The proposed methodologies will be explored, tested and verified and compared with the current state of affairs in order to demonstrate the increased accuracy and quality of the application of new methods and tools.

The aim of the Smart City 4DII Information System is to enable its modules to inventory, plan, manage, document and analyze communal infrastructure data by integrating different aspects of data.

The quality of communal infrastructure directly influences the quality of service and delivery of products to end-customers, and so the socio-economic and technical-economic indicators need to be monitored. The project will explore, test and confirm the capabilities of newly-developed modules for socio-economic and technical-economic monitoring and analysis of data. The project will also include:

Define socio-economic indicators and data essential for infrastructure
Define cost and benefit study methodology – monetization of direct and indirect costs and benefits of infrastructure and other parts of cost and benefit analysis
Monetization of infrastructure life cycle – technical and economic optimization of capital costs and maintenance costs
Define an integral system of monitoring the infrastructure service standards
Define the integration of technical-economic data, accounting monitoring and budget accounting of local self-government

Within the security module, you will explore, test and validate alarm, video monitoring, system management solutions, and test the platform for mass messaging and crisis alerting.
