Smart cities are evolving to improve living, working, recreational and visiting experiences for people. However each city/town has different needs and challenges, and smart solutions exist in abundance to address the needs and create benefits for a variety of stakeholder groups. There is no single definition of a Smart City and no ‘one size fits all’ solution. Glasgow for example has a strong focus on the citizen experience, especially on safety, whereas Nottingham has invested heavily in smart energy solutions working towards a zero carbon target.
