Many share the hope that today’s troubled urban centers can be transformed into tomorrow’s smart cities.

Smart cities seek to transform the outdated landscape of urban hubs into viable, sustainable, livable spaces that often use the latest technology infrastructure to improve the lives of residents and attract new businesses and inhabitants.

The goal of smart cities is not to create showplaces for technology but, the Smart Cities Council says, to use information and communications technology – smart sensors, the Internet of Things and machine learning – to enhance “Livability, workability, and sustainability” for the residents of major cities like Miami, New York and Philadelphia.

Philadelphia has been working hard on its smart city blueprint.

In the past few years, the country has been working on a massive smart-city mission “To promote cities that provide core infrastructure and give a decent quality of life to its citizens, a clean and sustainable environment and application of ‘smart’ solutions,” according to India’s Ministry of Urban Development, which is spearheading the smart cities program.

About a year ago, the company began to adapt its smart technology for use in cities.
