Humanizing the Sustainable Smart City (HiSS)

About the project
The research team have the ambition to develop a new research area in urban development (studies). Wellbeing in smart cities is the defined research area, focusing on interactions of human-machine-computers or ”cyber-physical-human systems”, based on human decision making on an institutional, individual and neurological abstraction level. The smart cities of the future is our main application area as these are complex cyber-physical-human systems. The project will develop a framework for capturing interactions and dynamics in these systems and demonstrate the applications in user case studies.


Background

The health condition of a human being is the basis of individual and social wellbeing. The driving force for human-social behavior and many choices made by individuals is the desire for well-being and this will be manifested in the future, smart cities. Feedback and interactions in smart cities are carried out by networks, by human agents, by cyber agents and physical infrastructure. The smart cities can efficiently and sustainably increase the human wellbeing.

 

Cross-disciplinary collaboration
The research team represents School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS, KTH), School of Industrial Engineering and Management (ITM, KTH) and School of Architecture and the Built Environment (ABE, KTH).
