Smart Cities

Toward a Modern, Smart, Connected City

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.

The use of technology and data alone is not enough. If cities are to achieve their objectives, it is essential that they have an effective ecosystem framework in place that will allow them to emphasize on better resource utilization, less environmental emissions and better interactions with the citizens. 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. This also means more interactive and responsive city administration operations, safer public spaces and fulfilling the needs of ageing populations.
