Product Description

Course Overview

Smart cities refer to the cities facilitated with smart/intelligent physical, social, institutional and economic infrastructures to ensure smart living, economy, and governance. The new innovative approaches and smart information and communication technologies (ICT) enhance the quality, performance, interactivity and efficiency of urban services in smart cities. Smart cities implementation will make the cities more livable and resilient, reduce the costs and resource consumption and improve the contact between citizens and government. The sectors that support direct application of smart city technology include government services, transport and traffic management, energy, health care, water and waste management. Smart city applications are developed to improve the management of urban flows and allowing for real time responses to challenges.

This course provides a deep insight to Smart City Technology and challenges involved in smart urbanization. This course assists in learning various components of Smart Cities, identifying and applying a systematic as well as strategic planning for developing and implementing Smart Cities. The attendees will also learn about the future trends in smart cities in context of IoT technologies, Smart Grid, Wireline and Wireless technologies, Cloud computing, Smart home systems and smart healthcare.
