Welcome to the Frederic Michel Verdier blog. Smart city technology can help cities operate more efficiently while improving services to citizens and businesses, among many other benefits. The initiatives of the smart city is to prioritise people- both the residents and the visitors above everything else will tend to improve the life quality. From housing to transport, to health, to educational services, to environmental conditions, to happiness, to well-being.
Citizens can also expect cities to deliver robust, user-friendly digital services in many facets of life. Expanding digital services in communities make smart cities a more attractive place for residents to live and promote a connected citizen experience.
“Connected transportation systems have some of the greatest potential to drastically enhance efficiencies throughout a city” says Frederic Michel-Verdier. From enhanced traffic management to public transit riders’ ability to track bus or train locations, smart technologies allow cities to better serve citizens despite often rapidly growing populations.
With this, a smart city should also support the idea of sustainable development as it is the basic need of an hour and we cannot compromise in dealing with the valuable natural resources and fall into crisis. Also, taking the first steps toward picturing what your smart city might look like is, well, the smart thing to do.
