HiSS: Humanizing the Sustainable Smart City

Collaborative Project 2020-2024

The research team have the ambition to develop a new research area in urban development (studies). Wellbeing in smart cities is the defined research area, focusing on interactions of human-machine-computers or "cyber-physical-human systems", based on human decision making on an institutional, individual and neurological abstraction level. The smart cities of the future is our main application area as these are complex cyber-physical-human systems. The project will develop a framework for capturing interactions and dynamics in these systems and demonstrate the applications in user case studies. 

Sponsored by Digital Futures, HiSS represents a highly multi-disciplinary research effort ranging over three schools at KTH: the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS, KTH), the School of Industrial Engineering and Management (ITM, KTH) and the School of Architecture and the Built Environment (ABE, KTH).
