Smart Cities

Most of the major challenges we face in cities, everything from behavior, quality of life, resilience, climate and global warming to questions of health, pollution, disease, all are driven by management city and Rapid urbanization.In this degree, – Smart Cities – contributes with an urban development vision integrating ICT and IoT (information and communication technology and Internet of things). Which is represented by the four pillars of comprehensive development-institutional, physical, social and economic infrastructure.

– Smart Cities – with – Polis Maker – vision give an interdisciplinary approach and cross indicators of organizational and dynamical aspects of human needs with an emphasis on quality of life.

In this way present evidence illustrating that the processes relating urbanization to economic development and knowledge creation are useful, being shared by cities belonging to analog urban system and sustained across different cultures.

These assets include governance, economy, work, life balance, people, urban planning, shelter, environment, cultural heritage, city management, energy, waste management, wastewater, water, transportation, education, culture, innovation, technology, health, safety and others.

This Polis Maker vision and city models makes the most of existing resources through reuse, sharing, and exchange on a path of production, needs and behavior.

The trend of rapid urbanization presents a challenge toward a qualitative way of urban organization and real sustainable development. Cities would be also part of the origin of the solutions, because they attract new ideas and interaction that leads to innovation, wealth creation and notions of -urban ecosystems-.

To reach this goal, cities can work towards developing such comprehensive infrastructure incrementally, adding on layers of -smartness- with the assist, advice and encourage of Polis Maker integrated in terms of urban indicators and many other variables that characterize the system as a whole.
