Smart cities are our future

 A smart city is an urban area that uses an array of digital technologies to enrich residents’ lives, improve infrastructure, modernize government services, enhance accessibility, drive sustainability, and accelerate economic development.

What is a smart city?

Governments in many of these smart cities tap into a combination of Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), edge, blockchain, and other cutting-edge solutions to:

  • Protect and connect with residents and businesses.
  • Improve accessibility for all people in the community. 
  • Support businesses and fuel economic growth.
  • Share information with the public.
  • Streamline government operations.
  • Deliver user-friendly community services.
  • Provide reliable, intelligent infrastructure.
  • Drive environmental sustainability.
  • Promote cross-agency collaboration.
  • Upgrade public transportation. 
  • Manage city resources to avoid waste.
  • Collect and analyze data to get valuable insights.
