Let’s have a closer look at what makes a city actually smart? Smart cities add digital intelligence to the urban world and use it to solve public problems and achieve a higher quality of life.
There are three layers of “smartness”, that will elevate life in cities of the future:
– The tech base includes high-speed communication networks of connected devices and sensors
– Smart applications and data analysis capabilities, translating raw data into alerts, insight, and action
– Adoption and usage, often leading to better decisions and behaviour change
Smart city applications could affect various quality-of-life dimensions: safety, time and convenience, health, environmental quality, social connectedness and civic participation, jobs, and the cost of living.
For example, the city of Barcelona has adopted smart technologies by implementing a network of fiber optics throughout the city, providing free high-speed Wi-Fi that supports the IoT. By integrating smart water, lighting and parking management, Barcelona saved €75 million of city funds and created 47,000 new jobs in the smart technology sector (status 2019).
