Bright Lights, Smart City
Today, cities are getting “smarter” and are providing an improved quality of services through the monitoring of infrastructure and environmental events and conditions. But what exactly makes a city better than it was before?
Cities becoming more sustainable will not happen over night, but providing the general population with tools to help them be more aware of their carbon footprint will decrease emissions significantly. Water-consumption tracking and air-quality monitoring applications provide real-time information to the public enabling them to adjust their lifestyle to be more sustainable as well as protect themselves from harmful pollutants.
Today around the world, cities have been benefiting from the efforts to reduce traffic and air pollution with systems to monitor traffic lights, streetlights and charging stations for electric cars. As cities globally continue to utilize smart technologies this will require reliance on automation, connectivity, and IoT end device interoperability.
