FREMONT, CA: A smart city with the blend of intelligent technology applications and proper planning is the general want of every person in subscribing to a rising standard. It can be built by ensuring the efficiency and effectiveness of the resources that are being utilized, provide better managing services like transportation, healthcare, and other utilities, and give scope to the governing bodies to adjust with the changing needs in quickly.
The evolution of smart city can break the old model of the interaction between people and authorities and make better decisions with the help of electronic devices and sensors that collect data about its infrastructure, citizens, and processes.
The facilities of transportation have to be efficient, fast and safe which can be acquired by sensors at different places like traffics, bus stops, and intersections along with dedicated phone apps and online portals for grievances. Besides the sensors, a smart city needs a foundation of reliable, sharp infrastructure that can allow the collection, transmission, storage, and processing of data.
The chief aim of infrastructure is to collect data and process it so that it can generate intelligence to drive responsive action. It provides a network of data accumulating endpoints broad enough to cover the major portions of the city and enables it to collect data from multiple areas. Collecting data from various sources helps in providing better insights with accuracy, which can help in emergencies. An integrated system of infrastructure collaborates with governing bodies of the smart city to provide public services through intelligent infrastructures like automated response with efficiency and a lesser amount of time.
High-speed communications powered by high-bandwidth technologies can help in handling a massive amount of data on the digital network, and a well-equipped infrastructure has to have an intermediate storage system for daily operations as well as future formulation. The use of high capacity data processing will help the city to draw insights from data and give responses through machine automation. The Internet of Things can lend a hand in automating simple actions in response to the occurred changes alongside saving energy and time to ensure to safeguard the fire-fighting and nuclear power generation.
