Our researchers working capturing city information in real time, and then assess how to process and generate new knowledge. From their work, it is possible to develop better services for users and the state. Implementing smartcities involves multiple variables, ranging from legislation to technical computing elements: how to store the data and how it is processed to make it faster and deliver standards for application of the work is known as Business Intelligence.

The interdisciplinary work has led to significant achievements in this regard. Our transportation experts and modeling have been working to reduce congestion and improve safety in the city. One of the major projects of researchers ISCI is “Advanced technology for cities of the future”, which provides sophisticated tools that are integrated systems with scientific basis for decision-making authorities in big cities.

The study in this area aims to assess the impacts of policy scenarios in the medium and long term, improve the design of transport policies and infrastructure, to deal with emergencies on time, considering the uncertainty.
