As cities worldwide make use of information and communication technologies to better deliver services and create efficiencies, they must find ways to protect citizens’ personal information.
Today, pioneering smart cities are reaping the benefits of Internet of Things-connected infrastructure in areas from more efficient energy consumption to better traffic management.
It’s clear this is only the beginning. One key benchmark technology for smart cities is smart meters, which are critical to improved energy and water management. Market projections are substantial: $69 billion per year globally.
