A smart city promotes and provides a connection between government services and the community they serve. This is done through technology (often sensors) that allows for data collection. A city can monitor what is happening using software and platforms, learn what the needs of the community are, and implement solutions that provide a better quality of life for residents. The methods to achieve this achieved varies based on the unique needs of each community.
