There's no single definition of a "smart" city, the term generally refers to cities using information technology to solve urban problems. SMART cities will contribute major share to countries GDP. Think of sensors monitoring water levels, energy usage, traffic flows, and security cameras, and sending that data directly to city administrators. Or apps that help residents navigate traffic, report potholes and vote. Or trash collection that's totally automated. Older cities can be retrofitted with smart city technologies, but smart cities are also built from scratch. Because new cities have every detail planned from the outset, they allow urban officials to address problems like overcrowding or pollution before the first residents move in.
SMART CITY = INTEGRATING [DESIGN + TECHNOLOGY]
"Cities in the past were built on riverbanks," "They are now built along highways. But in the future, they will be built based on availability of optical fiber networks and next-generation infrastructure."
