What is a Smart City?
A smart city is an urban area in which, thanks to the use of digital technologies and more generally of technological innovation, it is possible to optimize and improve the infrastructures and services to citizens, making them more efficient.
“The smart city is the set of urban planning strategies aimed at optimizing and innovating public services to relate the infrastructures of cities with the human, intellectual and social capital of those who live in them through the use of new technologies “(source: Wikipedia).
A smart city uses IoT technology in the different spheres of the Public Administration: from public transport and mobility to energy management and distribution; from public lighting to urban security; from waste management to maintenance of public buildings up to communication and information systems. We therefore refer to a smart city, but above all to a sustainable, efficient and innovative city, a city capable of ensuring a high quality of life for its citizens thanks to the use of connected and integrated technological solutions and systems.
