What is a Smart City?
Integrated city systems called Smart City have been developed at the point where the services in the cities are insufficient as a result of the rural-urban migration and disproportionate population increases in the cities due to the development of the possibilities in the cities. With the Smart Cities, livability in cities has increased and the difficulties in cities have begun to be resolved better. Smart Cities have become an increasingly widespread concept and formation with the development of technology today. The concept of Smart City is innovative cities that produce more environmentally friendly, sustainable, practical solutions to the problems that occur by using the possibilities of developing technology and turning to renewable energy sources. In short, it can be called efficiency, sustainability, livability and technology.
In general, the goal in a smart city is to create more livable cities with a high level of prosperity and happiness.
