A “smart city” uses digital technologies to make its administration more efficient, speed up processes, improve its residents’ wellbeing, reduce costs, protect resources and enter into a more active dialogue with residents.
As a general social development, the “smart city” is part of the Internet of Things. By intelligently networking products and systems it utilises transport systems more efficiently, reduces energy and water consumption and CO2 emissions, makes the city a more pleasant place for residents and tourists, deploys the emergency services in a way that is better targeted, gets the authorities to communicate more efficiently, and optimises waste disposal.
From the IT angle, the main challenges facing the “Smart city” project lie in the areas of communication networks and IT security. Controlware has a great deal of experience in both areas, so it is the ideal partner to work with you to develop your smart city strategy and to make your ideas a reality.
