Smart city applications

Smart cities use data and digital technology to improve the quality of life, while changing the nature and economics of infrastructure. However, the definition of smart cities can vary widely and is based on the dynamic needs of a cities’ citizens. Mobility seems to be the most important smart city application for many cities, especially in European cities. For example, e-hailing services are available in most leading smart cities. The deployment of smart technologies that will incorporate mobility, utilities, health, security, and housing and community engagement will be important priorities in the future of smart cities.
