RUMBLE strategic partner, Cradlepoint, recently sponsored a white paper (A Sensible Approach to Smart City Projects) showing the most successful smart city initiatives have been those that started small.
“Some companies will come and try to create a global dashboard that tries to take data from every part of a city and analyze it,” said Ken Hosac, vice president of IoT strategy and business development, Cradlepoint. “The approach we’ve been taking is to find a specific targeted use case and make that use case better, or enable a use case that didn’t exist before.”
This more “sensible approach” of refining one service at a time instead of undertaking a massive project upfront has overcome the hesitancy of city managers taking advantage of smart city technologies.
The White Paper explores various facets of smart city initiatives, including:
- Examples of smart city technologies
- The potential benefits of smart cities to enhance the quality of living for its citizens
- Common and pragmatic first steps in embarking upon smart city initiatives
- Smart city pitfalls to avoid
