Smart City Use Cases Report


To make all our lives easier, we needed to create a report, in the form of a book, which put together many “smart city” use cases, case studies, and development notes all in one handy book. Introducing the “Smart City Use Cases” book which is a comprehensive collection on smart city initiatives that range from transportation to broadband rollouts. It includes the wireless and Wi-Fi builds. It won’t just point out the success, but the failures. This is how we can all learn, from what’s been done and tried. Not every initiative is a success, so let’s learn from both the failures and the successes.

The Smart City Use Cases book is a collection of smart city case studies and development notes. The purpose of this book is to give you some advice and direction on smart city development. It’s for any city worker or consultant or integrator that intends to roll out in their city. The customer is not always right in this case. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Just because it’s been done doesn’t mean it’s right for your city. Think through what they end goal is then work backward from there.

Why not look at what other cities have done, how they got to where they are, why they did it, and the results? The process is as important as the end goal. The city will need buy-in from the residents and support from various departments. It helps when the integrator has a solid plan. Even with the solid plan, things change, and you need to be flexible. It pays to build one system that can serve multiple functions and support many users. It must have value, not just to the city but to the residents. It helps when it can make money or have a payback. This is another tool to help you down the path.
