Citizen Engagement in Smart Cities and the Use of Node-RED
Citizen engagement in smart city development is one of the key elements to its success. Participating citizens do not necessarily have to be developers, and cooperation between citizen developers and professional developers can lead to more efficient and creative solutions.
Node-RED is a tool that allows users to create programs with a visual interface that helps citizen developers give shape to their ideas and communicate with professional developers.
To facilitate this process, project management and resource sharing are important. enebular provides tools for this. enebular’s flow and node sharing features allow citizen developers and professional developers to work together.
Citizen engagement in smart cities is an important way to harness the power of technology to solve urban problems, as well as an important way for citizens themselves to directly improve their lives and their environment. enebular and tools like Node-RED allow citizen developers and professional developers can join forces to create smarter and more efficient cities.
