About this talk

Smart city is a hot topic today. It is exciting because it will bring great convenience to modern living. Think about the time you spend driving around downtown to find a parking place. Imagine if you simply open an app on your smartphone and it will tell you the closest parking place and how much it will cost. Additionally, you can pay the parking fees remotely without worrying that you would get a parking ticket. This is just one example. Why are IoT manufacturers interested in the concept of smart city? Why are carriers like AT&T and Verizon are investing in creating smart cities? The business opportunities a smart city will bring are enormous. The possibilities smart cities will bring are unlimited. This session will cover the concept of smart city and the role of IoT in it. What are the requirements for a city to be smart? What role does low-power WAN (LPWAN) play in smart city? What other technologies are needed besides IoT? A smart city case study will also be presented. Key takeaways: · Smart city is becoming a reality with smart lighting, cars, parking, building, traffic control, healthcare, street lights, and more. · How IoT makes it happen · Are all LPWAN created equal? · The role of artificial intelligence and 5G in smart city · What to expect in the next five years?
