A smart city is a structure built on multiple components to help warn, advise, and make the running of it’s city more financially economical and controllable. The structure or framework is predominantly built and composed of information and communication technologies to address its growing challenges.
For any city, town or community to become smart, it needs to have a critical mass of connected sensors, smartphones, and other Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The connected devices can connect to the Internet and share the data they collect with city officials, engineers and other key administrators and managers. Managers of city systems can use various applications to take this data and turn it into information that they can then use to accomplish tasks and optimise their operations.
Smart cities work in ways that bring together technology, government and society to enable smart economies, mobility, environmental, governance and quality of life for people that live in them. Their diversity will reveal more options and foster creativity among the participants who look to build on this technology.
The technological and behavioural innovations they share with one another will help each city to analyse and optimise their processes and better adapt their plans to meet the needs of their citizens. Smart Cities can make savings of millions of pounds per annum when the correct technologies are deployed within the network using fibre optic and Wi-Fi infrastructures combined with the internet.
Today, 54% of people worldwide live in cities, a proportion that’s expected to reach 66% by 2050.
