The term "smart city" describes ideas and concepts for urban spaces that aim to make cities more efficient and thus more climate-friendly and liveable through the use of modern technology.
To achieve these goals, processes and infrastructures are developed that are supported by highly integrated and networked information and communication technologies. In the process, a wide range of tasks are solved to create an urban infrastructure. It ranges from parking space management to intelligent street lighting and rainwater management.
Intelligent traffic technology is also part of a smart city. The traffic management centre in smart transport collects and analyses data with precise location information for real-time traffic monitoring and management, and sends traffic information to commuters to improve their travel safety and comfort.
