Smart Cities can be viewed as a complex ecosystem where thousands of 'things' (e.g., smart objects, vehicles, mobiles) interact with people in order to provide innovative services. Following this view, the #SmartME project aims at creating an horizontal Cloud-based framework enabling developers and users to manage such a complex ecosystem, remotely controlling things as well as virtualizing their functions implementing a provisioning model to scatter the application logic on top of the involved smart objects and to choose with fine granularity which specific tasks to delegate to centralized Cloud infrastructure. After one year from the project kickoff, we present the main architecture by highlighting how advance services can be deployed. © 2016 IEEE.
