While the city has the ultimate responsibility for developing the systems of the future, technology and innovation play a key role in building smart cities. Better communications between local government leaders and technology vendors can encourage the development of connected, resource-efficient urban areas.
Huawei, leading ICT solutions provider, sees the following four areas of opportunities where technology and innovation play a key role in the building of smarter cities, here is the link:
While the city has the ultimate responsibility for developing the systems of the future, technology and innovation play a key role in building of smarter cities for the future. This includes applied innovation, better planning, a more participatory approach, higher energy efficiency, better transport solutions, intelligent use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), etc.
(1) Smart transportation
Huawei sees Smart Transportation categorized into the following: Better utilization of existing infrastructure, vehicle reduction and changing the mix of vehicles.
To innovate solutions such as smart sensors that are capable of constantly measuring and optimizing vehicle resources to lower current vehicle carbon emissions leading to lower carbon emissions and extending vehicle lifespan and smart traffic diversion, which reduce road traffic.
