Abstract: Currently, even in the actual socio-technological context, characterized by connectivity and easy data acquisition, there is a lack of holistic platforms built for managing heterogeneous vehicle data integration into intelligent transportation systems. This paper presents the development of an innovative smart assistant platform for the smart mobility context inside smart cities, based on a prototype of a portable device able to acquire and communicate environmental and pollution parameters together with mobility/drive information. The smart assistant platform was developed to assist public authorities, business and casual users, in various transportation/mobility scenarios, enhancing their level of comfort, safety and environmental awareness. The presented platform is able to integrate data provided by third-party systems through a custom developed software library. It offers visualization and management tools, allowing the development of worldwide distributed sensor networks based on an open data access API for externalizing public sensor data.

Keywords: Smart city, Smart mobility, IoT, Environment, Sustainable transportation, Environmental awareness.
