Power plants, radar systems, traffic lights, communications and weather systems have been part of everyday life for decades, which have made security and longevity paramount. Currently, these systems are built from scratch, with little re-use of existing software building blocks. This, in turn, drains resources and leads to fragmentation and duplication of effort. This is where open source comes in. The Civil Infrastructure Platform works with other open source projects to develop a super long-term supported (SLTS) open source "base layer" of industrial grade software that enables the implementation of building blocks in civil infrastructure projects. This session will feature how open source software powers smart cities, an overview of CIP activities and its collaborative efforts with other OS projects such as Debian, the ELISA Project and EdgeX Foundry.
