Something To Build On
Transformational technologies like 5G, sensors, autonomous vehicles, AI, IoT, blockchain and the paradigms they enable allow cities to achieve significant cost savings, boost economic growth, meet sustainability targets, and improve convenience and costs for citizens to live in urban environments.
Key technology-driven smart city solutions include preventive maintenance of connected infrastructure like streetlights and commercial vehicle fleets, energy cost-savings though usage optimization, improved service delivery through eGovernment and chatbots, more efficient AI-based public safety systems, carbon-neutral commercial buildings, and congestion-reducing smart mobility. Additionally, IT/OT platforms power resilient infrastructure and demand-response optimized service delivery. Increasingly, vendors offer turnkey technology solutions like air quality monitoring and smart parking systems via “as a service” business models.
