As global warming is a global concern, cities are now racing to use smart technologies to predict and manage fire, police, medical, water, sanitation, and other public services before, during and after disasters.
Soon, there will be a substantial growth in the number of devices we use in each city. This number is estimated to rise to 25 billion globally. Imagine connecting all these devices and utilizing the insight. Using the IoT technology, you can integrate a large amount of data in a vast area (i.e. a city) and put it to use to scale to billions of devices creating smart cities, cars, parking spaces, etc. that make saving time and energy possible.
Support for the smart city vision is growing, with around 72 percent of building managers who are familiar with IoT believe that IoT will define city operations in the coming two to three years. Smart cities are comprised of smart components like smart parkings and many components manage their energy, lighting and even waste smartly.
