A Planning Tool for IoT-Enabled Smart Communities

SmartParcels is a tool that assists urban planners in deploying applications in smart communities. The deployment involves the mapping from information units (generated from data analytics), infrastructures (sensing, networking, and computing devices), to geophysical locations. SmartParcels provides two design schemes, clean-slate (planning from scratch) and retrofit (exploiting existing devices). Moreover, it allows urban planners to control the trade-off between optimality (sensing coverage and accuracy) and efficiency (execution time) for the design results, as well as to perform dynamic traffic simulations. SmartParcels then allows urban planners to finetune the results according to the user’s domain knowledge.
