The Opportunities of IoT in Smart Cities
IoT-empowered smart city solutions imply the connection and communication between different city objects and systems with the help of sensors. Exchanging the information and performing certain actions in response to the changing conditions, such a solution transforms a city into a solid ecosystem that simplifies, automatizes, and ‘smartens’ the routine processes. Here is our infographic to show what improvements such solutions bring to people and the environment.
As their populations balloon, cities face opportunities and challenges. An influx of new residents and visitors can enliven a city’s economy and generate revenue. At the same time, more people in urban areas strain resources. Cities are turning to Internet of Things technologies to alleviate the burden and create economic growth.
The trend toward urbanization is undeniable. Global city populations are expected to grow from 3.6 billion to 6.3 billion by 2050—more than 60%. Las Vegas is no exception. Over the past 10 years, the city has experienced a 40% increase in its population and expects 50% growth over the next decade.
