Many cities around the world have either launched smart city projects or have plans in the works. Smart program initiatives focus on infrastructural planning and development for water resources, energy, climate change, transit and transportation programs like car sharing and improvements towards public cycling and infrastructure, informational resources and the Internet of Things.

The Masdar City Initiative which has worked towards its goal as a carbon neutral, car-free, sustainable smart city has been one of most aspirational examples to date. More recently, South Korea’s business district urban plan for Songdo, a suburban smart city enclave near Seoul, has been designed to collect and measure every aspect of daily life through big data monitoring and automation.

In the past year, many ambitious projects have been announced including 9 smart city developments in China for the cities of Taiyuani, Guangzhou, Xuzhou, Wuxi, Linyi, Zibo, Zhengzhou, Chongqing, and Huhan.
