If you’re one of the nation’s fastest-growing cities, spending money on vanity projects is no longer in fashion. In an explosion of common sense, today’s planners have set their sights on more sensible stewardship of public funds. So it was that Milton Keynes Council together with the Open University and BT, and other partners, had the bright idea of forming MK:Smart to accelerate the development of Milton Keynes as a smart city.

Amongst a wide range of smart city projects, a successful pilot has deployed sensors from Deteq at the city’s railway station to prove the feasibility of city-wide parking space optimisation. Innovative wireless technologies are used to beam the sensors’ data to receivers on lampposts, and that information is then analysed in the central MK Data Hub, which is currently hosted by BT. The prize from full deployment will be a capital saving of at least £105 million, with reduced fuel use and vehicle emissions.
