    4. 4. Introduction 4  A city is said to be “smart” when it identifies the important trends and suggesting what all things are to be implemented in new days.  Identifying the trends from various fields such as e – government, information science, urban studies and public administration and discuss the challenges, success factors and impacts of government-driven initiatives that makes a city smart.
    5. 5. Smart city 5  A Smart City is a developed urban area that creates sustainable economic development and high quality of life by excelling in 6 key areas that can be done through strong ICT infrastructure.
    6. 6. Objectives of a smart city 6  Significantly reducing emissions (CO2, greenhouse gases,…)      Long-term objective: a zero carbon city, zero emission buildings as standard Significantly reducing energy consumption. Long-term objective: reaching close-to-zero energy standards in new and existing buildings. Significantly increasing the use of renewable sources of energy (e.g. in public buildings) Raising awareness in the wider public about responsible use of resources (energy, water) Promoting multi-modal transport systems by improving the public transport network, enhancing networking between individual transport carriers, and significantly reducing individual motorized transport
    7. 7. Characteristics of smart cities 7  It should reach a stage of developed infrastructure  It should have a strategy for creating a competitive environment  It should have an approach to inclusive and sustainable cities
    8. 8. Concepts that make a city smart 8           ICT Innovation city Regional Green City Quality of life E-governance Low-carbon Wi-Fi network Transit systems Traffic regulations Water efficiency management

    10. 10. Top 10 smart cities on the planet 10 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Vienna- E-governance Toronto-natural gas from landfills generation Paris- Bicycle sharing programs (250 bicycle stations) New York- questionable tax refunds London- entire city will be free wifi network Tokyo- home for integrated solar panel, storage batteries Berlin- Vehicles to Grid Copenhagen- 0 carbon by 2025, 40% use bicycles Hong Kong- smart cards, RFID Barcelona
    11. 11. Smart city concepts in India 11  Establishing two smart cities in each Indian states is the goal of the wide-ranging project introduced by the Indian government to inject smart technology into cities home to between 500,000 and one million people an ambition that goes hand in hand with seven other smart-city projects already underway.  Urbanization is rampant in India, where an average of 30 people move from rural areas to the city every minute. The country is set to build 500 new cities over the next 20 years to house 700 million more city dwellers by 2050, according to a study by consulting firm Booz & Company.
    12. 12. 12  Just 30 minutes from New Delhi, India is building the "Wave City" project on 18 square kilometers of land in Ghaziabad, where all services will be managed by smart systems, even the rail line.  Another initiative making headlines in India is the country's private city project, "Lavasa”.  Efforts are also made to make the Gujarat city Dholera as smart a city as Shanghai by the year 2020.
    13. 13. Turning Lavasa into a smart city 13  Lavasa is awarded apparently as the first e-city of India.  With Cisco and Wipro collaborating, efforts are being made to convert Lavasa into a smart city at world’s stage  Considering other international cities which are smart enough, and taking inputs from these cities, efforts could be made for a transition.
    14. 14. Smart Lavasa 14  Wipro will provide its expertise in areas like city management services, e-governance, ICT infrastructure.  Wipro will also design the detailed infrastructure for telecom services for governance, as well as solutions for the residents of Lavasa City and their visitors.  Wipro will provide telecom-based services that will facilitate smart homes and buildings, including integrated building management systems, physical security requirements and other on-demand services.

    16. 16. Conclusion 16  Smart cities is thus becoming the most important part of any government  Each and every country though small or large is putting efforts to make its cities smart  With all the smart acts of some of the most developed cities of the world, any section should be looked upon and efforts should be made to implement these things.  With more and more smart sectors coming up, life becomes very easy for cities that implement them.
