Smart cities are slowly becoming reality. All devices that can be controlled, whether its traffic lights, information kiosks, street lights, or energy consumption meters, they are all slowly but surely connected to the Internet of Things. This evolution brings many new possibilities that were not possible ever before.
A smart solution for consumption
In smart cities, there are several ways to save energy. One of the options is, for example, to dim the lights that have nobody around, and at the same time to reduce light pollution. Smart Metering and Smart Energy solutions, in turn, help reduce overall energy consumption by generation of green energy and its distribution amongst city citizens.
One of the big things of Smart City projects is communication. Traffic lights, cars and parking spots can communicate with each other to provide greater security and convenience. The city can warn cars of traffic jams or inform autonomous vehicles about other cars driving nearby to prevent accidents.
