In time for the ITS World Congress, the IBI Group
has released a white paper entitled Top 10 Smart City Success Factors. Drawing on the firm’s experience designing smart cities and delivering intelligent transportation systems, the whitepaper sheds light on the key elements required for cities to develop and implement a successful strategy.
“Smart Cities are already a reality. Government and private sector initiatives worldwide ar exploring innovative ways to make cities in the 21st Century more efficient, more liveable, and more competitive. We believe that achieving these goals is not just about being technologically advanced – it’s also about urban renewal and citizen engagement,” said Bruno Peters, IBI Group Smart Cities Task Force Lead, and author of the whitepaper.
Today (Monday) Peters will be participating in a panel discussion centered around Canada’s $70 million Smart Cities Challenge which will explore best practices for developing smart city strategies including transforming neighbourhoods, infrastructure, public service and the economy.
