  • Just how smart is your city?

  • Chances are it's getting smarter by the year.

  • Many governments around the globe are racing to infuse technology into just about every aspect of its city's operations.

  • And I mean every part.

  • Including public transportation, IT connectivity, water and power supply, sanitation and solid waste management, efficient urban mobility, e-governance and citizen participation.

  • And it does this using every buzz word imaginable, from big data to the internet of things.

  • So how does a smart city work?

  • Let's look at three examples.

  • Here in Singapore, the city-state might be the gold standard of the most extensive effort to collect data on daily living.

  • The government is now deploying systems that can tell when people are smoking in prohibited zones or littering from high-rise housing.

  • Singapore launched its own smart nation program in 2014 and will add more cameras like these

  • so the government can effectively monitor crowd density, cleanliness of public spaces

  • and even the exact movement of every locally registered vehicle.

  • Much of the data its collecting will be fed into an online platform called Virtual Singapore

  • that gives the government access to how the city is functioning in real time.

  • It could help the government predict how crowds might react to an explosion in a shopping

  • mall or how infectious disease might spread.

  • Over in Dubai, more than 50 smart services from 22 government entities have been rolled

  • out as part of the government's 'Smart Dubai Initiative'.

  • Using the government-provided app, Dubai Now, you can do things like pay a speeding ticket

  • which likely captured you on a public camera and was then emailed you the ticket directly.

  • You can also use the same app to pay your electric bill, call a taxi, track a package

  • you sent your friend, find the nearest ATM, renew your vehicle registration, track the

  • visa status of a relative and report a violation to the Dubai police.

  • Now head over to Barcelona where one research firm estimates the city will save a billions

  • of dollars a year in energy costs just by installing smart systems like these.

  • Number one: smart street lights.

  • Public lighting that adapts and dims when there's no activity but brightens up when sensors detect motion.

  • The second - parking sensors.

  • Instead of driving in circles looking for a spot to park, drivers can get real-time

  • information on an app which locates free parking spots.

  • Sensors on the street curb use lighting and metal detectors to know if a parking spot or loading area is occupied.

  • And finally, garbage sensors which are actually compact drop-off containers which have a vacuum

  • network through pipes which sucks up trash below ground.

  • The automated waste collection not only lowers noise pollution from garbage trucks, but also lowers costs and keeps bad odor away.

  • Juniper research estimates that by 2021 cities will save nearly 19-billion dollars by making their city smart.

  • But of course to save money, sometimes you have to first spend it first.

  • The global smart city market is estimated to attract 15 billion dollars by 2021, and that's just for software.

  • So now companies from Microsoft to Cisco are aiming for a piece of it.

  • In Singapore, Uptin Saiidi, CNBC.
