As safe cities evolve rapidly alongside smart city initiatives, innovative technologies are deployed to drive efficiency and to create innovative ways of delivering public services through automation and better use of data.

Safer City in the Context of Smart Cities

Smart means intelligence. Intelligence is needed to keep a city safe. The emergence of smart technologies integrated into buildings, infrastructure, devices and other assets means that more information can be captured to predict critical situations and achieve better outcomes in a cost effective manner.

Smart technologies include video surveillance, biometrics, cloud services, network connectivity, collaboration platform, big data analytics, embedded systems and advance database. These technologies can be applied to integrate Safer City applications across various industry verticals.

Integrating Smart Technologies into Processes

A holistic system is essential for optimal planning and decision making. There are a few things that are important. Government agencies need to acknowledge that they cannot do it alone. Team effort is required and hence, trust among various agencies is crucial before robust communication channels can be established. Above all, a trust partner is needed to bring superior technology that enhances user experience and better integration with existing processes.
