Smart cities

Smart cities are relatively new in the urban development jargon and can be defined as technologically-advanced urban regions. A smart city leverages existing and new infrastructure and technologies to develop and deploy services such as libraries, schools, hospitals, water and waste management. A primary feature is using sensors to collect real-time data on the use of services. Strong human capital, social capital, and advanced information and communications technologies are required to build a smart city.

The goal of the smart city applications is to improve city services and transform urban areas. A smart city creates sustainable economic development and a high quality of life by excelling in key areas like the economy, mobility, the environment, day-to-day living and government.

The global smart cities market is forecast to reach $1,134billion over the next few years.

Key vendors in the smart cities market include Honeywell, IBM, Oracle, Accenture and Cisco.
