Transforming our villages, towns, and cities into smart and connected communities is arguably the most pressing technological challenge for the coming decade. Some of the key technological enablers for this transformation include: a) the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem which is expected to connect a heterogeneous mix of objects ranging from smartphones and tablets to vehicles, sensors, wearables, physical objects, and people, b) intelligent and autonomous transportation systems, and c) smart power systems and smart buildings. Collectively, these innovations will provide cities with the much needed intelligence, autonomy, and connectivity that will realize the vision of truly smart environments. In this session, we will present a broad view on the smart cities vision, while discussing its enabling technologies with a focus on the challenges and opportunities associated with each one of them.
