Sustainable smart cities and the power of the IoT
A smart city leverages digital technology and the IoT to improve government services, as well as energy, healthcare, traffic, transportation, waste and water management, and more.
The United Nations estimates that 68 per cent of the world’s population will be living in urban areas by 2050. This trend underscores the growing need for smart city solutions that address:
- Increased cost of living
- Urban infrastructure inefficiencies
- Depletion of non-renewable energy sources
- Greater need for public safety
- Decreased quality of life.
This paper presents the intricacies involved in architecting successful smart cities and describes the nuances of sustainable smart city solutions.
