What Are Smart City Trends You Need To Look Out For?
A smart city is defined as a specific geographical area that utilises technology-based infrastructure such as ICT (Information and Communication Technology) and electronic sensor to improve day-to-day city operations, problems and concerns. The increasing demand for smart cities has been embodied by a growing concern for economic growth, connective water and sanitation systems, better public safety and urbanisation initiatives.
As digital technology continues to develop and evolve in the years to come, smart city management trends are expected to change as we move towards automation and a need for increased optimised mobility. Research has shown that investment in smart city initiatives is expected to reach $158 billion by 2022.
