Smart Cities

INNOVATION INTEGRATION + RESOURCE SHARING = EFFICIENCY + LIVABILITY + SUSTAINABLE CITY DEVELOPMENT

A city is SMART when the allocation and deployment of its social resources is done efficiently through the extensive adoption of solutions and applications sprung from IoT (Internet of Things), ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and environmental-friendly technology. This leads to a more livable and sustainable city environment where its citizens can enjoy enhanced living quality and a much more convenient lifestyle.
