The internet of things (IoT) is transforming cities nowadays, and we call them intelligent or smart cities. Each of us has their own image of how present and upcoming technologies will impact and create future cities. So what are we seeing now in terms of urban development?
IoT helps to automate streetlights providing centralized control, reporting, coordinated switching, energy saving and monitoring, and remote fault detection and maintenance alerts. IoT automates rubbish collection and recycling, which improves cleanliness, reduces fuel costs, provides for operation reporting and yes, generally it helps to keep our environment cleaner. Isn’t this great? IoT will ensure pollution-free cities by monitoring air quality and identifying sources of pollution. Have you experienced an annoying situation in a car park when searching for a free spot? IoT solutions are being made available for the efficient citywide utilisation of parking spaces. Many more new applications for cities are available on the market, which will make a positive contribution to our lives in cities. Urban sustainability is no longer imaginable without connected things and their solutions.
