When the devices start becoming smarter, it inevitably leads to a smarter ecosystem of devices. The extension of such a development forms something that is called a smart city – A whole city that uses electronics to keep the area running at high or peak efficiency.
Such a development surely means that existing technologies need to be upgraded to meet the specifications and demands of the system. This costs investment and the government of a state or a country is responsible to make the investment.
Like anything that we invest in, if it doesn’t return any tangible value, the money goes down the drain with nothing of an impact to speak about, both for the government and the people who live within the city.
