A smart city is a city that utilizes technology to provide a better life for its citizens, and makes use of the Internet of Things (IoT) to enhance the effectiveness of governance and prepare for future planning. In recent years, Hong Kong has been planning the development of new towns. The development blueprint, now collectively known as the "Northern Metro Area", as well as the "San Tin Science and Technology City" and "Lok Ma Chau Hong Kong-Shenzhen Innovation and Technology Park" proposed in the recent years.
Vehicles equipped with the 5G Internet of Things and maps will find the best routes according to the traffic flow, to avoid traffic congestion black spots.
Government will install traffic detectors at major routes to receive real-time information to predict times required in traveling.
However, it is worth noting that driverless driving is still at the stage of active testing and awaiting relevant legislative work.
New Energy Vehicles
We can expect traditional vehicles to be gradually replaced by new energy vehicles. Supporting facilities will gradually be put in place in the community, including charging facilities in private housing estates and public places. Commercial trucks, buses and cabs will gradually be put on trial, taking a new step towards achieving carbon neutrality in Hong Kong by 2050.
Video analysis will be carried out at crowded places with safety risks, and illegal parking monitoring will be initialed using cameras on street lamps, etc. This could reduce monitoring costs and increase work efficiency.
Internet of Things (IoT) technology can be utilized to detect various natural disasters, such as landslides and flooding. Relevant sensors can be installed at appropriate locations. If the value exceeds the critical point, it will be transmitted to public officers to notify the public and hoist relevant alarms.
