The Future of Smart Cities


Samuel D. Simpson (Editor)

Series: Urban Development and Infrastructure
BISAC: ARC010000

This book contains seven chapters that detail the future of smart cities. Chapter One focuses mainly on the practical barriers encountered by the author during the design and implementation of three Smart City projects as a project management consultants (PMC) team leader. Chapter Two argues for a greater focus on enabling and enhancing the growth of third places within smart city(ies), through closer business to municipal government collaboration to ensure that these human aspects are taken into consideration by urban planners. Chapter Three argues that current technocentric approach(es) to smart city(ies) design and implementation may create unforeseen negative externalities arising from inequitable access to the promises of digitisation. Chapter Four discusses current developments and future research trends in smart technology(ies) within urban environment(s). Chapter Five includes insights from a robust literature review about inclusive transformation and an empirical study on inclusiveness in 21 smart cities in India along with a deeper qualitative study of Nagpur smart city. Chapter Six establishes that the formation and development of City Smart potential depends on a number of conditions and factors, which the authors divide into external and internal ones. Lastly, Chapter Seven provides a generalization of existing approaches to the definition of design and determinants of the smart awareness development among the youth of Ukraine, and describes the current state of perception of the Smart City Concept.
