The Smart Cities Project Tracker is updated on a quarterly basis, and contains information on approximately 400 smart city projects around the world. All these projects use integrated information and communications technology (ICT) systems to improve efficiency, manage complexity and enhance citizen quality of life, leading to sustainable improvement in city operations. This can be thought of as the implementation of the “Internet of Things” (IoT) in the city context.
