There is a race among Municiple Council to be the first to establish a Smart City for the benefit of the citizen living in their area. There have been many approach and concepts that have been adopted to kick start this concept.
I personally have always believe that a City is Smart as far as the effectiveness in the network connectivity. So the first thing that has to be look into is the coverage of Network connectivity in suburban and rural areas where the municiple council has its jurisdiction. Once the infrastructure is ready then only we can adopt the technology and content that can contribute to service the citizen effective and Smartly. Then only we can claim that the public services in the city is Smart.
Smart City Services can cover area of Public Interest like Public Security, Public Transportation, Cleanliness & Garbage Handling, Utilities Management and Maintenance.
