Figuer 1. Personal dashboard and city dashboards
After reading about quantified self and smart cities, I came into the idea of creating a personalised urban dashboard. This will allow users to receive personalised information and knowledge about a city.
We have been quantifying, collating, communicating and displaying the data streams of a smart citizen (quantified self initiative) for over one decade or two. And we have been quantifying, collating, communicating and displaying the data streams of cites for an even longer period of time.
Connecting Quantified Self and Smart Cities will contribute to the knowledge of how a citizen can benefit from the Smart Cities initiatives. As the citizens contribute the fund and data to Smart Cities, It will be very important to demonstrate any benefits that the citizens can enjoy from the millions of devices across the city and Terabits of data produced in the Smart Cities.
Can quantifying, collating, communicating and displaying data streams of a smart citizen bring benefits to a smart city and its citizens?
Quantified Self enables citizens to tailor the data produced in the Smart Cities to facilitate their life.
Scale down the Smart Cities into various phenomena and connect to a range of personal data for innovations that can facilitate t A personalised urban dashboard will be created to validate users reaction to the new creation from combining city data and personal data.
An example of an achievable personalised urban dashboard or urban data extended personal dashboard.
