A smart city is basically when we infuse technology into just about every aspect of the city's operations, which increases living standards and promotes an easy lifestyle for the people of the city. It includes every part of the city, for example, water and power supply, sanitation, urban mobility, public transportation, IT connectivity, sanitation etc. by collecting data on daily basis of the people living in it and it is done by using big data to an internet of things. An example here can be taken of Singapore, which has deployed systems that can tell when people are smoking in prohibited areas or littering from high-rise housing. They have high tech video surveillance for effectively monitoring the crowd density, cleanliness of public spaces and even the exact movement of every locally registered vehicle. So, this basically gives an insight of how smart cities can help to maintain law and order, clean city and an organized city. Having a system to keep a check on whether people are smoking in the prohibited areas or littering from high-rise housing can be very effective to make the city eco-friendly and clean. It also stops air pollution and will encourage the people to avoid bad practices like these. With high tech video surveillance, the crowd density and exact movement of every locally registered vehicle can be monitored which in turn is very useful to handle traffic congestion and crimes related to a car chase, robbery etc. It can also be helpful in emergency situations by monitor the crowd density

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
