The City.Risks project aims at increasing the perception of security of citizens in urban environments. This will be achieved by placing information sharing at the center of addressing security challenges in large urban environments. Citizens will serve both as targets and sources of information. Information flow will be bidirectional between citizens and authorities or among citizens themselves, forming trusted networks and communities. Smart phones and mobile devices will be utilized as the enabling technologies for the visualization and acquisition of information. The City.Risks platform will analyze and integrate diverse information including historical crime data, statistics, victimization reports, demographic data, maps of transportation networks, physical sensory data, news feeds and information mined from the Web. The products of this project consists into a City.Risks platform and SDK, City.Risks mobile and web applications and a City.Risks theft prevention and identification sensor.
