Populations in urban communities continue to ramp up, and cities continue to face challenges in meeting the ever-increasing demands. Modern technology plays a pivotal role in managing the swift rise in urbanization and the creation of smart cities.
According to a Visual Capitalist article, populations have risen from over 750 million during the 1950s to more than 4 billion in 2018. It’s predicted that over the next three decades, cities will see over 2 billion more people. With the exponential growth, there is increased pressure on efficient public services and urban planning.
Smart city technology has the power to improve residents’ health and well-being while also offering new opportunities for economic development. Let’s take the environment, for example. Smart city tech is expected to be critical towards cutting down on the consumption of water. Modern solutions like smart irrigation and leak detection systems, along with robust consumption monitoring tech, could translate to as much as 80 liters in water savings daily.
