Urbanization is rapidly growing. To sustain cities that cater to a population that requires ubiquitous connections and access to services such as electricity and water, new initiatives are being created to create and support what is known as "smart cities." The idea of a smart city is becoming more clear as technological advancements continue their upward trend and clean energy becomes more universally available. The IEEE Smart Cities Initiative (SCI) is an example of a new organization that fosters the creation of global smart cities that allow urbanization to flourish and advance. Through IEEE SCI, the Internet of Things, the smart grid and other promising technologies provide the framework for smart cities to take shape, but they also pose many engineering challenges. The future is bright for smart cities; today, new organizations and networks are helping aid its success through interoperability and compatibility solutions. Read more.
