What makes a "smart city"?
Developing Smart Open Spaces
Mar 18, 2015 Arij Y

Developing smart urban spaces, by connecting the embedded systems, sensors and smart devices located across the city together to form a cohesive and integrated ICT infrastructure for the city, is essential step along the way to smarter cities. Smart urban spaces are areas of a city that leverage ICT to deliver more efficient and sustainable services and infrastructures within that specific area. The spaces can sometimes be as large as entire city districts and these districts can include services like electric car charge points, energy- efficient buildings that use ‘smart’ meters and smart heating and cooling systems. Wifi hotspots and information kiosks that allow people to connect to the Internet on the move through these districts are also common services available in smart urban spaces. Free wifi hotspots are becoming more and more common in most European cities.
