Cities around the world face rapid urbanization, economic constraints, and environmental concerns. To address these challenges, city administrators are turning to technology, especially the Internet of Things (IoT), to digitize city operations.
Smart city services include various mobile apps, smart parking solutions, electric chargers for cars, smart waste management and real-time monitoring of air quality.
Smart city technologies must be secure, scalable, and interoperable — not just to meet today’s needs, but also to enable cities to undergo a sustainable journey towards digital transformation. They can help make cities more accessible, safer, greener, and liveable.
