Abstract

Economic growth in Europe has been, strongly associated with urbanization, overwhelming cities with vehicles. This renders mobility inside cities problematic, since it is often associated with large waste of time in traffic congestions, environmental pollution and accidents. Cities struggle to invent and deploy “smart” solutions in the domain of urban mobility, so as to offer innovative services to citizens and visitors and improve the overall quality of life. In this context, the paper discusses on the basic challenges that cities face when trying to enable smart objects, focusing on the particular area of mobility and presenting a capability – driven enterprise modeling approach towards enabling Smart Objects for Smart City Operations (SCO). Moreover, a process towards linking capability models to simulation ones is presented, trying to set the basis for effective SCO based on Smart Objects deployment.
