How do you make a city smart? That is the underlying question that unites the responses to the SmartCitiesWorld/Philips Lighting survey, which draws on input from 150 thought leaders from across the world.
SmartCitiesWorld, in conjunction with Philips Lighting, launched a worldwide survey that looked to understand and identify key attitudes and perceptions around the implementation of the smart city infrastructure.
The survey sought to uncover perceptions and understanding of smart cities and the Internet of Things from the viewpoint of different stakeholders. It also looked to identify the drivers and blockers to smart city implementation and how the latter could be eased to enable successful, dynamic cities of the future.
The results of the survey are contained within this white paper on smart cities, gathering views from the SmartCitiesWorld reader database on the challenges and opportunities that those working to implement a long-term vision face.
The report also brings in comment and examples from various cities including Barcelona, Chicago, Helsinki, Moscow alongside four in-depth case studies from Jakarta, Buenos Aires, Los Angeles and Cardiff.
If you are involved in the following areas, then this report would provide a useful insight into the challenges behind implementation of smart cities infrastructure:
• Governmental departments/regional authorities
• Investment community representatives
• Equipment manufacturers
• Facilities Management/Asset Management
• Service providers
• Network operators
• Systems integrators
