A smart city is a place where traditional structures and services are being combined with digital and telecommunication technologies to create a new, more efficient and interconnected environment, for the benefit of its citizens, visitors and businesses.
Smart cities are not only focusing on the use of information and communication technologies, but are emphasizing on better resource utilization and less environmental emissions. The new city structures include smarter urban transport networks, upgraded water supply and waste disposal processes and more efficient ways of lighting and heating buildings. It also means more interactive and responsive city administration operations, safer public spaces and fulfilling the needs of ageing populations.
