1 #SMARTer2030, IoT Solutions for 21st Century Challenges, 2015
I’ve heard many stories of the next big technology wave that will revolutionize the way we live, work and play. Many play out to be mere hype and hope. But a few have come to see the light of day. One such success is that of the emerging smart city.
A smart city uses technology to enhance citizens’ quality of life—socially, economically and even environmentally. For example, it is estimated that technology solutions including Smart Cities can enable a 20% reduction of global CO2 emissions by 2030.1
The good news is that the roll out of smart city technology is not a fairy tale or a far-off dream. It’s real. And it’s happening today – here in the U.S. and in cities across the world.
