Do you think cities are crowded now? According to the UN, by 2030, more than 5 billion people will live in urban environments. Before humanity reaches these incredible population densities, big cities will need to be optimized, making them better and smarter.

The concept of smart cities — also known as smart cities — is based on the principle that technological resources are designed to serve the population in the best possible way, facilitating displacement, communication, and the survival of the people who inhabit and share the same. environment.

Smart city initiatives can encompass anything from distributing clean energy, optimizing transport systems, more conscious street lighting, organized traffic, expanding the electric vehicle fleet, and even creating a more efficient waste collection system. connected and efficient.

“It is clear that the backbone of a smart city is the smart grid that sustains it. Although its benefits are extensive, they will only be realized when the infrastructures follow and connect synergistically, with dispersed machines and sensors, so that the exchange of information happens in real time”, explains the commercial director of the data center provider ODATA Victor Sellmer.

Five technologies that cannot be missing in smart cities

Increasingly, cities are looking at how they can use technology to streamline and automate all processes arising from urbanization. From bringing Wi-Fi networks to new places, to collecting data through internet of things (IoT) devices. Canaltech has separated some indispensable technologies for the development of smart cities:

5. 5G Networks

The fifth generation of mobile internet will allow connecting millions of devices with high speed. Smart cities would be able to use autonomous cars and optimize public transport systems, sharing data in real time.

4. Internet of Things (IoT)

The need for continuous communication is one of the pillars of smart cities. Having devices that support one or more ecosystems is critical for seamless, much more efficient data transmission.

3. Artificial intelligence (AI)

These devices can be used in smart traffic solutions, ensuring residents can move from one destination to another faster. Sensors scattered along the route would also help make the journey safer.

2. Geospatial technology

Smart cities use geospatial technology to make urban environments more accessible and sustainable. Depending on the needs of citizens, this system reacts to their demands, optimizing water distribution, public transport, the construction of plants and the provision of public services, for example.

1. Cloud and edge computing

The combination of sensors and high connectivity will result in massive data production. To avoid the appearance of noise in this communication, it is necessary to have an approximation between computing systems and information storage, reducing the distance between processing and analysis.

Almost smart

It is likely that many cities around the world are already incorporating various IoT and high-speed networking solutions to improve their day-to-day operations. However, the difference between that and a truly smart city comes down to vision and planning.

In addition to the technological issue, the inhabitants of future smart cities must also be involved in this planning process, collectively contributing to the elaboration of public policies that can connect individuals, machines and companies in the same information network, with data shared securely. and for the good of the whole community.

“To extract the full potential value of data in a smart city, the interconnections between people and applications, diverse content, and fast internet networks need to operate in perfect sync, allowing users to access information and interpret it. them immediately, in the best possible way”, concludes Victor Sellmer.
