The future is exciting. Especially if we live in the technological future of a smart city. Exactly, what is a smart city? What will such a city look like in 2020 and beyond? Smart cities aren’t prevalent yet, but here’s a preview of how intelligent a smart city could become.
Smart cities start with smart buildings, which use automated processes to automatically control the building’s operations, which include heating, ventilation, air conditioning, lighting, and security. A smart building uses sensors, actuators and microchips to collect data and manage it by concurring to a business’ functions and amenities. This arrangement supports owners, operators and facility managers to develop asset reliability and performance by reducing energy use, optimizing space usage and minimizing the environmental effect.
