Abstract

In recent years, with tremendous advances in areas like mobile devices, algorithms for distributed systems, communication technology or protocols, all basic technological pieces to realise a Smart City are at hand. Missing, however, is a mechanism that bridges these pieces to ease the creation of Smart Cities at a larger scale. In this visionary paper, we discuss challenges of Smart Cities and propose enabling technologies to bridge the above mentioned pieces for their actual realisation. In particular, we introduce the concepts of Social Opportunistic Sensing (SOS) and Social Centric Networking (SCN). While the former is an enabling technology to interconnect all parties in a Smart City, the latter has the potential to enhance offline social networks in Internet of Things (IoT) enhanced Smart Cities by connecting individuals based on their automatically updated profile via context-based routing.
