Abstract: The idea of a smart city could be defined by the way a city enhances the lives of its citizens by using technology to provide essential services in the most efficient and economical way. A city that provides clean energy, efficient transportation, reduction of pollution sources, optimization of precious resources, access to evolving technologies, affordability, accessibility, service to the community, and an upbeat progressive environment. Usage of communication and information technology to provide better education, and livability. Usage of renewable energy to power houses, businesses, street lights, for clean transportation. Affordable and efficient transportation for its citizens with free wi-fi, to reduce driving, congestion, and pollution, within the city, and enable them to utilize their time while they travel from point A to point B. A smart city uses information technology to better educate, and better entertain its citizens, provide a safe environment and aid the police to use the information efficiently to prevent crimes and provide better protection for its citizens, while providing rehabilitation for criminals, and potential criminals. A smart city uses the information technology efficiently to provide urban forest, better parks with playgrounds for people of all ages that exercise the body, clear the mind, uplift the spirit, entertain, and educate.
