6 of the smartest cities in the world
Francesca Brady

Information technology is omnipresent in our lives, and it is increasingly being used to manage and enhance our environments on a larger scale. Of course, the level of development is uneven, and some cities are advancing at a faster pace than others. Some metropolitan areas are digitalised to such an extent they truly deserve to be called ‘smart cities’, and it’s only a matter of time before more follow their lead.

Here is the short list of global cities that lead the way in terms of sustainable development and automation of essential civic functions:


San Francisco, USA

It’s not a surprise that the epicentre of the technological revolution is among the most automated urban environments in the world! A large proportion of the energy needs of San Francisco are already met using renewable sources, and the city is aiming to achieve 100% renewable electricity by 2030.


Tokyo, Japan

Japan is known for its focus on efficiency, and you can see this on full display if you visit their capital city. Tokyo has a smart rail system which utilises IoT technology to analyse its network of trains in real time. This system transports a staggering 13 billion people per year, an amazing feat of engineering as well as administration. The city is one of 19 global cities to commit to ensure new buildings are “net-zero carbon” by 2030


Stockholm, Sweden

High ecological awareness meets technological development in this beautiful European city. Recycling stations are placed within 300 metres of each household, resulting in almost 100% of all household waste being recycled. 50% of this waste is burnt to create energy that powers the city. Stockholm was also the first location to introduce 4G mobile service, and its public internet infrastructure remains one of the best in the world. Considering the fact that a large percentage of its public transportation runs on renewable fuel, this is a very clean place to live.


Seoul, South Korea

As one of the pioneers of the ‘smart city’ concept and home to numerous tech companies, Seoul offers unique digital services to its people, with disabled patients and elderly citizens being able to use apps to facilitate quick administration of medical assistance, while other services are easily available online. The city is expected to launch a 5G mobile network in the near future.


New York, USA

Few places in the world come close to the Big Apple when it comes to integration of technology into everyday life. Its digitalisation started in 2009 and has now progressed to the point that smart screens and Wi-Fi hubs are being positioned around neighbourhoods for public use.


Singapore

Technology is used to solve all manner of issues in Singapore, from healthcare provision to fighting crime through remote surveillance.  The city maintains a business friendly data policy and allows access to public databases in order to stimulate development of innovative services. That’s why this Southeast Asian city-state is often considered to be amongst the most successful smart cities in the world.

Even if you are not living in one of these cities, you won’t have to wait long for this wave of innovation to reach you. Chat to the Asset Mapping team today in order to learn more about various applications of smart technology. Remotely view all aspects of your building and building's health in real-time; from air quality to operating system efficiency. Give your team different levels of access to equipment data and empower them with the information they need to become pro-active to problems.

At Asset Mapping, we help make smart buildings that are cheaper to operate, kinder to the environment and healthier to work in.
