Abstract

The rapid development of our cities is posing new global challenges that require crucial transformations with a focus on its human dimension. This includes the needs of more lively, safe, and healthy cities, and an active community that is engaged in this transformation. In this paper we describe how the concept of smart cities and large-scale and fine-grained deployments of environmental wireless sensors can play a crucial role in addressing these challenges. We present two testbeds in the City of Antwerp, Belgium, focused on air quality and noise monitoring, and we discuss how they enable future applications for a more humanized city.
