By 2050, the number of people living in urban areas will have doubled and 70% of the world population will be living in cities. The urbanization trend, together with a greater attention to the consumption of water and energy resources, environmental pollution, and economic and technological changes, is just one of the countless challenges facing urban centers in recent decades.
To address these phenomena and their transformations, cities need to become smart, leveraging the diffusion of ICT technologies to improve citizens’ lives, respecting the environment and future generations, and increasing local attractiveness and competitiveness, thus opening up to new opportunities for economic and social development. The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the key factors for the creation of smart cities.
