Smart Cities and Communities: standardization to meet citizen and consumer requirements

Location: Brussels
11 December 2019

Standards are confusing for cities in the first place, and the needs of the citizen  including usability, accessibility, or data security are not often taken into account.

ETSI’s Human Factors Technical Committee, is preparing a Technical Report with recommendations giving an overview of existing and needed standardization relating to the requirements of inhabitants of or visitors to smart cities or communities. The Report will examine the standards landscape in this context, and make recommendations as to how the current situation can be improved. The draft Report will be presented to this meeting and the outcome of the discussions will be taken into account in preparing the final version of the Report and recommendations.
