Smart Cities & Government
Smart cities & Government use technology to enhance quality, performance and interactivity of urban and governmental services, to reduce costs and resource consumption and to improve contact between citizens and government. Sectors that have been developing smart city technology include government services, transport and traffic management, energy, healthcare, water, innovative urban agriculture and waste management. Smart city applications are developed with the goal of improving the management of urban flows and allowing for real time responses to challenges.
Major technological, economic and environmental changes have generated interest in smart cities, including climate change, economic restructuring, the move to online retail and entertainment, ageing populations, and pressures on public finances. Arup estimates that the global market for smart urban services will be $400 billion per annum by 2020.
So, explore the possibilities and changes that lay ahead of us in the future in this innovative track at the IoT Tech Day 2017.
