Software to support the implementation and evaluation of smart measures in cities.
The aim of the project is to contribute to the implementation and monitoring of the Smart Cities concept in the Czech Republic through a specific public software tool Smart City Compass. We are partners of CTU UCEEB (ČVUT UCEEB) and the Faculty of Information Technology of CTU (ČVUT).
CZGBC, in cooperation with the University Center for Energy Efficient Buildings (ČVUT UCEEB) and the Faculty of Information Technology, CTU, created an application that facilitates strategic planning for town halls based on the real achieved parameters of cities.
The software tool brings Czech municipalities the possibility of a standardized approach to the implementation and evaluation of their own technological progress in the field of Smart Cities in parallel with the evaluation of sustainable development. CTU coordinates development with the application guarantor, which is the Ministry for Regional Development of the Czech Republic.
CZGBC is responsible for informing selected target groups about the activities and results of the project. We expect growth of the group of cities, whose representatives consistently plan and monitor the deployment of smart technologies.
The software tool provides three key features:
(1) EDUCATIONAL functions in relation to the municipalities of the Czech Republic
(2) the GUIDE function to set quantified Smart Cities goals
(3) enabling monitoring and EVALUATION of progress in the implementation of the Smart Cities concept at the local level.
A background study (in Czech only) is available - report summarizing the key findings and starting points for the preparation of the Smart City Compass software tool.
The project is based on the existing methodology (in Czech only) developed for the Ministry of Regional Development in cooperation with CTU and CZGBC and the need identified together with the Ministry of Regional Development. The key added value of the tool is the conversion of Smart Cities indicators into an interactive electronic form and the facilitation of the evaluation process.
