While the definition of a smart city is still evolving, some things have become clear: Smart cities leverage information and communication technology to improve service levels, people’s prosperity, sustainability, and economic development.
Smart city technology can make cities more effective and efficient, as required by the rapidly expected growth in urban populations over the next few decades. In this aspect, it contribute and accelerate e-government initiative as well. Smart cities leveraging on technology related to their operations have earned many benefits. Here are benefits we can see cities come from smart technology every day:
The listed transportation system has some of the greatest potential for drastically dramatic improvement across the city. From enhanced traffic management to the ability of public transit operators to locate bus or train locations, intelligent technology allows cities to better serve the people even as their population is growing rapidly.
Technologies such as smart traffic signals optimize traffic flow, relieves congestion during peak travel times. Other smart transportation technologies, such as smart parking management, enable the city to capitalize on additional revenue streams. Reducing congestion, growth in autonomous vehicles, and efficient vehicle transitions all reduce the need for space-related spaces in urban areas, potentially expanding land use for development.
Increased digital equity
Smart city technology has the capability to create a more equitable environment for the people. To ensure digital equities, individuals must have access to high speed internet and affordable devices. The use of strategically placed public Wi-Fi hotspots throughout the city can offer reliable internet service to all residents.
