Standard DIN SPEC 91347
Currently, in various areas of the smart city and its infrastructures many different standardisation projects exist.
There is, at least on national level, no integrated view on norms and standards. Decision makers lack reliable guidance which connects the ecological, with the social and the economic points of view.
The standard DIN SPEC 91347 was developed to close this gap. It was written with a group of members form the SMART CITY Forum complemented by additional companies and initiated by Lutz Heuser (CEO [ui!] GROUP).
The standard offers an overview of the wide range of uses for integrated multifunctional street lighting, in synergy with the urban infrastructure. The objective is to ensure the interoperability between different technologies and domains in consideration of existing standards.
In addition, missing standards should be identifies and fitting standardisation projects initiated. The focus lies on open standards to ensure, for instance, the data exchange between different domains and cities.
