What is a smart city?

A smart city uses IoT sensors and technology to connect components across a city to derive data and improve the lives of citizens and visitors.

What does a smart city do?

Oftentimes, a mobile app is provided to give immediate access to data, communication channels, and more so that people can do everything from avoiding traffic jams, to finding a parking spot, and reporting a pothole or an overflowing dumpster.

Why do smart cities matter? 

The world is becoming more urbanized, and by 2050, more than 60% of the world's population is expected to live in cities. Making these cities better places to live is essential to quality of life by making them more sustainable and efficient with streamlined services. They are happening right now, all over the world.

Where are smart cities happening?

Early adopters of smart city technology were European cities, but now they are happening all over the world as councils incorporate technology into municipal infrastructure.

Who is making smart cities happen?

Public and private companies, as well as federal, state, and local governments, are getting involved to make it easier for municipalities to adopt new technology. Private and public partnerships are becoming a smart way for cities to add technology.
