A ‘smart city’ is one which utilizes intelligent and networked technologies to support us in daily life. They enable us to save time, utilize new forms of mobility, and breathe cleaner air. In a nutshell, the technologies at the center of a smart city work to improve general quality of life for its inhabitants. Fewer traffic jams, intelligent homes, and an energy-efficient use of buildings are just a few tangible benefits.
While connected cities are already a reality in many places, Bosch’s broad range of intelligent solutions teach our cities to think in even more helpful and relevant ways. It’s a reality worth considering; by the year 2050 at the latest, 60 per cent of the human race will be living in cities. Discover more facts about smart cities here:
