Why do we invest in Smart City projects?
By harnessing the benefits of information technologies and innovation, modern cities have the opportunity to streamline their dayto-day management, become more efficient and improve many aspects of our daily lives. The opportunities are countless. Smart lighting using motion sensors can save billions on energy costs. Use of information technology and big data may prevent the spread of infectious diseases or improve traffic. To know which issues really matter, smart cities place an emphasis on effective urban planning and consultation. When identifying and developing new projects smart cities engage their citizens. With a greater use of technology, cities have the opportunity to pursue their development in a more sustainable manner.
