There are sensor nodes within Smart City applications that develop massive data which are under utilized in the present times. The ICT infrastructure can be used for bringing heterogeneous information together. 3G, Wi-Fi & LTE are information aggregation that can be obtained with the exploitation of wireless communication technologies. IoT surrounds electronic devices including computers when it comes to internet infrastructure & embedded devices utilization. The Smart City notion is based on the operation of numerous IoT devices but from a common set.
The existing infrastructure is going through a considerable amount of strain due to the ongoing urban growth. Such demands can only be accommodated on the various cities when municipalities revert to IoT innovation for decreasing costs, enhancing communication & a lot more. Every aspect related to urban living can be enhanced with the help of IoT.
The contributions of this paper are as follows:
- Work out a classification of a Smart City environment based on IoT
- Studying overviews of open platforms intended for smart cities
- Put forward current synergies and some case studies on numerous smart city operations
- Unearthing IoT related open challenges for offering upcoming directions.
Studies related to smart cities & IoT are several. The union of these two areas will lead to more academic efforts that will lead to the development of Iot based smart cities.
