SECURE SMART CITY ROUNDTABLE

Smart City Implementers: What Have You Learned and What Are Your Cybersecurity and Privacy Challenges?

Adnan Baykal
Global Technical Advisor
Global Cyber Alliance

Maryam Rahmani
Global Partnership Officer
Global Cyber Alliance

GCTC Cybersecurity and Privacy Advisory Committee will conduct a roundtable discussion with smart city implementers and hear the challenges and successes on smart city implementations. Mr. Baykal has facilitated multiple such roundtables nationally and worldwide. Participants will learn from each other’s experiences and take home many aha moments as well as beneficial connections. Furthermore, the roundtable will inform the development of the Cybersecurity and Privacy supporting framework, ultimately benefiting smart city implementers around the world.

POSTER SESSION

In separating the communication channel from the power line, the desired redundancy comes at the price of the alternative channel. Project GRACE secures the smart meters while leveraging the public (wireless) networks and reaping the benefits of sharing.

What is the definition of Intelligence? There are no consistent definition of Intelligence. For example, Are plants intelligent? Are Animals Intelligent? Are Dolphins more intelligent than Humans? Answers to these questions depend on the perspective. Defining intelligence is hard. How can we build intelligence into anything when we can’t define Intelligence well?

There are two ways to explore this complex topic of Intelligence:
A) A practical, engineering-centric approach
B) A theoretical or philosophical approach.
We take a practical approach to defining Intelligence and show how to build intelligence into anything. Intelligence is a system that requires three essential elements
1. Sensing
2. Responding
3. Overall Optimization

We take a technical view of each of these elements and deep dive into “Optimization” aspect of Intelligence. We argue “optimization” as the most critical piece of an intelligent system. While the popular press and marketing noise is about self driving cars, smart cities and other intelligent systems, machine learning technology is the workhorse behind scenes. We discuss current state of the art in Machine Learning systems. We share our practical experience with large scale machine learning and challenges of parallelism both at model and data level.

This presentation outlines the current research at PNNL on transportation systems research, where the transportation system can be represented as a three layers operational control system. The top layer stands for the system operational central controls, the middle layer is composed of all the concerned intersection signal control systems over a urban area and the bottom layers are for the individual vehicles. The functionalities of the intersection layers are to smooth traffic flows via signal timing control and the vehicle layer means for enhanced fuel economy indexes via powertrain and aftertreatment systems control. Our research has been focused on intersection signal control using stochastic distribution control theory originated by Wang many years ago. For vehicle level control we are working on co-optimization of integrated powertrain and aftertreatment systems using V2V and V2I information so as to enhance the fuel economy. These two areas of work are funded by DoE Vehicle Technology office and DoE ARPA – E nextCar program, in collaboration with ORNL, NREL, University of Michigan and San Diego State University, and also funded by PNNL LDRD scheme.

To assess the potential to reduce the harmful effects of traffic fuel consumption a framework for Environmental Traffic Assignment (E-TAP) is presented; that is a methodology for allocating traffic flows on a road network with the objective of minimizing objective functions related to energy such as fuel consumption or traffic pollutants. The underlying minimization problem in E-TAP is characterized and studied for uniqueness. The considered minimization problem is framed along the well-known Wardrop’s principles to develop two cases: 1) a User Equilibrium (UE) case that assumes selfish-routing of individuals and 2) a Social Optimal (SO) case that obtains the minimized solution for the entire system. The framework is illustrated via a case study application of E-TAP for the greater Los Angeles area. The E-TAP results are compared and contrasted to traditional travel-time based traffic assignment.
