Smart city initiatives take many shapes and forms, from information kiosks and street light management to gunshot detection and response. They are used to collect data and to manage assets and resources. Typically, smart cities are driven by five primary objectives: economic development, security, quality of life, cost savings, and sustainability. As technology, the economy, and the environment change, smart cities have generated increased interest.
There are a number of roles that utilities and others can play in leading or supporting the development of a smart city. ScottMadden can help you identify and implement the appropriate strategy based on your objectives, capabilities, and existing assets.
