Smart City

In this day and age, due to the emergence of problems caused by rapid population growth within cities around the world, the use of technology for city management is required more than ever.

At the same time, technology has made significant advances. With the advent of information and communication technology (ICT) and the importance of the Internet of things ( IOT) and its impact on the service sector, it has been proven that technology can help people manage their place of residence. In this regard, "Smart City" has been proposed to solve many problems faced by current cities.

In smart cities, the duration of different tasks will be reduced; through the internet, people can gain access to their educational information, recreational facilities, commercial information, administrative information, health issues and other services at any time and in any place; duration of receiving services will be reduced; energy consumption will be optimized; traffic will be decreased and transportation will be facilitated. In a simple sentence, the quality of life will be improved. The electronic city is a 24-hour city where urban affairs are available all the time.
