The smart city is, in fact, a movement that is creating citizen-centered ecosystems that are carefully crafted to improve quality of life. It also intends to stimulate economic activity by facilitating cashless transactions through contactless technologies. The Covid-19 pandemic also influenced smart city developments as social distancing and contactless interactions are preferred globally. Meanwhile, the latest trends and technologies like artificial intelligence, data analytics, and 5G are driving this smart city transformation at a faster pace.

Smart cities won’t be complete without intelligent homes. Tech giants including Google, Amazon, and Apple significantly expanded their smart city concepts with gadgets and other connected devices. These expansions are not just limited to smart devices but integrated technology, AI-driven solutions, predictive analytics, and IoT.

Secure wireless connectivity and IoT technology are transforming traditional elements of city life. This also includes intelligent lighting platforms with expanded capabilities. The scope comprises integrating solar power and connecting to a cloud-based central control system.

When it comes to the smart city space, there are a variety of technology trends that are boosting the industry like never before. For businesses to adopt smart city solutions and make their operations smoother, they need the right solution provider with the proper sense of identifying client requirements.
