Smart Cities: Municipal Networking, Communications, Traffic/Transportation, and Energy

Many municipalities are exploring the smart city concept. They may be installing municipal wireless networks; implementing e-government initiatives by providing access to city departments and initiatives through websites; integrating public transportation with Intelligent Transportation Systems; or developing ways to cut their carbon footprints and reduce the amount of recyclables that are consigned to the trash heap. This study clarifies the meaning of the term "smart city" through an examination of more than 50 actual smart city projects around the world. It also provides insights and data from a range of ABI Research studies that cover many of the technologies that can be used to make a municipality and its various agents more communicative and responsive to its citizenry, while allowing its transportation and other infrastructures to use energy more efficiently and cost-effectively.
