World : How IoT-Based Devices Are Helping Cities Grow Smarter

The modern world points towards the creation of a smart city where computer systems can connect to IoT-enabled devices and sensors to get valuable information and data that can be used to manage cities efficiently.

Every second, millions of new devices are connecting to the internet. The increase in the availability of the smartphone is contributing in no small measure to the development of smart cities.

Smart City IoT Applications

Today, your smartphone can communicate, interact, and link with a vast range of smart devices and sensors that are present in our environment.

For example, in today’s world, with the help of a professional diagnostic tool on your phone,  you can connect your phone to your car to scan and get diagnostic codes, which you can use to diagnose the check-engine light that appears on your dashboard.

This is just one of the numerous examples of smartphone interaction with devices enabled by the Internet of Things (IoT).

There are other examples, such as connecting your smartphone device to your washing machine to see water usage and electricity consumption.

All this points towards the creation of a smart city where computer systems can connect to IoT-enabled smart devices and sensors to get valuable information and data that can be used to manage cities efficiently.
