Around the world, smart city programmes combine IT with internet-connected devices – from waste management to smart grids – which enhances municipality management.
The most common smart city projects include smart lighting, intelligent transport systems and smart utility metering for electricity and water. These technologies and integrations are based on sensor-centred collection and analysis of data. They offer cost-effective and innovative solutions to the growing number of challenges faced by municipalities.
However, despite the countless benefits of smart city projects, many challenges remain when it comes to deployment, due to unique city requirements and differing interpretations of deployment concepts.
