SMART CITY: IN QUEST OF SMART SOLUTIONS

SMART CITY: IN QUEST OF SMART SOLUTIONS

Smart city is a term that is taking root in the media and has entered the social debate on town-planning. Many cities take pride in pursuing a “smart city strategy”. But what does that mean exactly?

When they hear the words “smart city”, many people think of modern technology.

WHAT SPRINGS TO MIND WHEN YOU HEAR “SMART CITY”?


There are multiple aspects to a smart city: society, economy, e-government, ecology, mobility and infrastructure. These components are so very diverse and broad that a city addressing this concept needs, first of all, to have a clear vision. Once that vision is in place, all subsequent steps can be fully thought out so that they are meaningful and beneficial to the local population. Each city is built on unique historical and industrial foundations. These shape the needs and requirements of the city’s inhabitants and what they want of smart infrastructure.

A smart city concept, though, is not some all-embracing miracle-working technological saviour. It is primarily a process of determining how new technology can be put to optimal use in the service of the urban population’s needs, comfort and convenience in order to improve their quality of life.
