A UN report indicates that 54 percent of the world’s population lives in urban areas, and is expected to increase to 66 percent by 2050 with most of the increase concentrated in Asia and Africa. Mega-cities with more than 10 million inhabitants are increasing in number and size that includes Tokyo, Delhi and Mumbai as well as Shanghai, Mexico City, and São Paulo.
As technology advances in communities, cities have become smarter and more interconnected to the world around us through growing IoT (Internet of Things) and CPS (Cyber-Physical Systems). “Smart-Cities” are defined as “urban centers that integrate cyberphysical technologies and infrastructure to create environmental and economic efficiency
while improving the overall quality of life”.
