From Singapore To New Zealand To Vancouver, Smart Cities Are All About The Citizens
The main goal of building a smart city is to increase the standard of living and the quality of life of the residents. Without the cooperation of the citizens, it is quite difficult to understand what kind of an invention will help them the most. The cities must be so designed that the citizens are encouraged to build, design, and operate the smart solutions.
WienMobile app lets the citizens of Vienna choose any mode of transport and plan their travel. Vancouver has a small clip-on device that lets the citizens know how clean the surrounding air is. The Antenno app in New Zealand cities send the citizens notifications about the place they love. Singapore’s Smart Home Device tells the owner if any appliance has been left on and let them switch off remotely.
Cities are required to open their networks. Helsinki started off five years back and was followed by many cities across Europe, Australasia, and North America.
But the Open Data Barometer reports that much of Asia and South America and all of Africa still have work to do.
Smart cities are a great way to improve efficiencies and reduce cost in various sectors.
