Around the globe, cities are becoming larger and more populous as we witness significant migration to and between urban centres. How can we equip cities to respond to changing demands?
Researchers across the faculties at Maynooth University are helping to create smart cities from both the technological and social perspectives. In particular, we examine the development of new information and communication technologies - such as wireless sensor networks, ubiquitous computing and wireless communications.
Our research in areas such as wide area wireless sensor networks, traffic management, geocomputation, spatial analysis, and data mining, is being used to address the key challenges of the modern city and to reshape urban infrastructures.

Researchers from Maynooth University Social Science Institute have launched a new online resource that will let citizens, businesses and policy makers access information about the city in an unprecedented way. The Cork Dashboard allows users to monitor a huge range of public data at a glance - from real-time traffic and weather information to air quality and crime levels - all in one place and free of charge. You can visit the Cork Dashboard at www.corkdashboard.ie.
