Ad Hoc BYOD Information Services in Public Places of Smart Cities
Jarogniew Rykowski , Wojciech Cellary
AbstractIn this chapter, we focus on public information broadcasting as an important component of a smart city. To broadcast information, we propose to install miniature and very cheap access points in public places in a smart city, capable to interact with mobile personal devices according to the bring your own device (BYOD) idea, in ad hoc and anonymous mode, by means of Bluetooth connection. The broadcasted information is automatically adjusted to the specificity of a given time/place, limiting the need for further processing at the user side. The proposal is not a competitor to current solutions, such as generic mobile applications providing city services based on geo-location. It is rather a natural supplement and extension to the already existing intelligent transportation systems. According to the idea “right information at the right place and the right time,” the proposed system provides the information well suited for the place of its access, as well as minimizes the efforts related to parameterized access and personalized filtering.
