IoT and Smart Cities


The adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) in various smart city ventures across the globe has propelled the idea of exploiting information and communication technologies (ICTs) to support urban services. With the goal to improve the quality of life of citizens, various stakeholders in cities are building alliances and initiating projects with public and private entities to explore new technologies.
In this scenario, there is a need to manage and integrate different types of knowledge to efficiently and effectively support the exploration and exploitation of IoT. Smart cities are about to bring positive social change. Driver of this change are IoT-based services for citizens and the adoption of IoT-enriched governance and human capital among the citizenry. But certain gaps still exist in the planning, execution and interoperability of IoTbased services. In this context, several international initiatives and organizations pool together their knowledge and discuss the potential of converging towards open and interoperable solutions for smart cities.
