Zaragoza: Pioneering a Citizen-Centric Smart City Vision
Fifteen years ago, Zaragoza - the historic Spanish city situated between Madrid and Barcelona - pioneered a vision of a future digital district and knowledge-based society. Since then, the city has developed an impressive portfolio of smart city projects and new urban services. According to Daniel Sarasa, Urban Innovation Planner in Zaragoza and internationally recognized smart city innovator, one of Zaragoza's unique strengths is its culture of citizen involvement and participation. This culture has its roots in the reawakening of democracy. In the late 1970s, the city of Zaragoza (like other cities in Spain) looked back on thirty five years of dictatorship – and looked ahead to an uncertain future. During the years of dictatorship, Zaragoza had grown in population from approximately 235,000 to more than 500,000, but the civic infrastructure and public services needed to support this urban growth were inhibited by an autocratic...

Have you ever heard about smart cities where traffic, public services and document circulation are fully automated? The smart city concept integrates big data and the internet of things (IoT) to optimize the efficiency of urban processes and services and connect to residents. One example of this innovation could be light sensors that save electricity and road surveillance costs.

The basis for how automated systems and infrastructure sensors will coordinate their activities and communicate with each other is currently being tested in Dubai, some cities in China and the US.

There's a need for smart city tech on dry land and at sea, and Las Vegas, Cary, NC, and the Port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands have all found ways to benefit from adding technology. Officials from the three municipalities shared their stories at Cisco Live 2018 in Orlando, FL.

Cisco uses its Kinetics platform to work with each of these customers to analyze data traffic from sensors, cell phone, video feeds and other sources in order to create policy, such as a security configuration policy, and to give city leaders information that can improve the lives of citizens and visitors.

In the Port of Rotterdam, officials have launched the 42 container that will replace traditional shipping containers. The smart container will launch Rotterdam into the digital world of shipping, which ties into the smart city tech already in place in the city of Rotterdam.

With some things you can get away with the one size fits all mentality, but not when it comes to smart cities. Geographic, cultural, financial, and technical considerations that vary from city to city dictate how technologies can be applied to the smart city concept. Ultimately, however, the end goal is always the same: to use connectivity, the cloud, and data analytics – in other words, the Internet of Things (IoT) – to enhance the lives of a city’s residents.

This can translate to anything from reducing traffic congestion and pollution to optimising supply of energy and water, from improving waste management to making urban infrastructure maintenance more efficient.

In all of these areas, the IoT plays a central role. It enables data collection from an almost infinite variety of sensors and other sources, the processing of that data locally or in the cloud, and the initiation of actions based on information gleaned from it. From smart meters to smart parking spaces, every face...
