A smart city (also smarter city) uses digital technologies to enhance performance and well being, to reduce costs and resource consumption, and to engage more effectively and actively with its citizens. Key ‘smart’ sectors include transport, energy, health care, smart buildings, air quality, pollution, public security, municipal services, water and waste.
Smart Cities should also offer clean air to citizens and this could be done via air quality monitoring and prediction system.
A significant body of work has been done on Structural Health Monitoring in the Networks Group at Data61 | CSIRO.
