Smart city is the concept of managing public infrastructure in cities from a centralized location by deploying information and communication technology (ICT) tools. This is expected to enhance the performance and quality of urban services such as energy, connectivity, transportation, utilities, and governance, among others. A smart city is a framework of ‘intelligent network’ of connected objects and machines that transmit data using communication technology to the data center/cloud. In essence, the integrated command control center (ICCC) receives and manages data in real time to help enterprises and residents make better decisions that improve quality of life. These decisions can reduce traffic congestion and energy disruption as well as boost Internet connectivity and other services while cutting costs.
With the inauguration of Smart City Gurugram by Chief Minister Manohar Lal on 7 December 2019, the city is now on its way to transformation with management of civic facilities and infrastructure with efficient use of ICT.
