What’s smart cities about?
The idea of smart cities, in short, is about using IoT-based systems for supporting emergency services, traffic management, waste management, public safety and security, and other city-level issues. It also includes IoT-based solutions for improving the production, distribution and consumption of energy.
Smart cities is also an urban development vision that is about integrating information and communication technologies (ICTs) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions in a secure way to manage a city’s assets.
Looking beyond the technological visions, the idea of smart cities should include an increased level of civic engagement in the use of ICT and public data sources, new sets of governance practices, as well as the emergence of new business models.
