Critical Components in Smart City Creation | Electronic Products & Technology

Content

Thomas McElroy explains in the June edition of Electronic Products & Technology Magazine how Smart Cities and how technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) can help connect all facets of a Smart City, including public transportation, utilities, major infrastructures, and so on. 

"The development of infrastructure for smart cities has been growing for many years and continues to move forward despite disruption from current public health and safety concerns. Interestingly, however, while the smart city phenomenon promises to deliver more efficient and technologically advanced cities with more digital accessibility for all citizens, there are still many who don’t quite know what a smart city is.

In essence, smart cities use technology and information systems to digitally connect a variety of civic-related sectors and Internet solutions—public transportation, utilities, parks and recreation, city infrastructures, etc.—all by using data-driven approaches that make the city more “user-friendly.” Ultimately, this data can be used to improve multiple aspects of life within the community."
