Create tutorials, workshop and practice use cases for smart cities. Demonstrate smart city applications as per NIST framework (work in progress). The workshop also discusses about IoT standards and protocol which would help ; community partners and city/municipality staff to get familiar with national as well as international IoT standards.

Demonstrate how the vulnerability and external threats affect Cybersecurity and privacy. Build a model for the city and municipality leaders to visualize and take corrective steps.

Build prototypes as per municipalities requirement and scale for other cities. Utilize NSF funded Maker’s space at Sonoma State University. The Lab is open for all cities/municipalities to build their proto types. The Lab has facilities to build product from scratch. (paper concept to proto type)


  • Most cities and municipalities are under equipped with knowledge and skills needed to design and build smart city applications.
  • Shortage of trained IoT and IT resources at the city level
  • Local Universities to work with closest city /municipality is still a missing partnership


  • Bridge local University and City/municipalities partnership to analyze the requirement and build proto types
  • Lack of know-how on IoT standards, prototypes and smart city framework.

Major Requirements

  • Gather requirement and training needs from the City of Rohnert park. We are planning to kick off this project by inviting all stakeholders from the city as well few residents and seek their inputs on what are training needs.
  • Create scope of workshop/ tutorials and requirements, project plan
  • Develop syllabus of the workshop based on the requirement gathering
  • Recruit instructors (within SSU) and TA’s (students) for teaching and lab exercises.
  • Create tutorials and lab documentations.

Performance Targets

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) Measurement Methods
  • Begin to Evaluate the current level of knowledge and skills available within the community of City of Rohnert park. Community includes: City leaders, Municipality staff, NGO’s, research scholars, students, residents and other non-profit organizations
  • Start training for 30 % of the audience (above) by the end of year 2018
  • Adopt another nearby city (under Sonoma County) and train 40 % of the community audience by the year end of 2019
  • Build proto types by Q1 of 2019 and present during GCTC 2019 spring conference
  • Scale up and extend workshop to other cities, municipalities and other communities of GCTC action clusters – Planned by Q3 2019.
  1. Measurement of trained staff available within the city/ community compared to baseline computed at the beginning.
  2. Monitor Prototype system performance with respect to the actual requirement/ specifications.
  3. Offer smart city applications to the actual users (community) and seek their feedback for improving next proto types or alpha/beta models.

Standards, Replicability, Scalability, and Sustainability

The workshop and tutorials content shall be prepared to meet the desired IoT Standards for instance; IETF, ISO, OMA-LWM2M, IPSO and NIST smart city framework.

Cybersecurity and Privacy

The workshop and lab sessions include Cybersecurity and Privacy teaching models. It’s also planned to have few working prototypes to demonstrate how to address vulnerability and cyber security threats.


  • Create trained resources within the community
  • Enabling city leaders and staff in making decisions for design, development and implementations of IoT based smart city applications
  • Create awareness of system vulnerability and threats and get prepared to address these undesired events
  • Utilize SSU’s maker’s space (NSF funded lab) to create proto types as well small quantities of production.


  • Planned to present the first draft during SCC Tech Jam 2018
  • Present first version by Winter 2018
  • working proto types by Spring 2019
