London is mobilizing the innovative spirit of its 10.8 million residents to become the ‘Smartest City in the World’.
An exceptionally high smartphone adoption rate could be complemented by a boost in mobile internet speeds to increase London’s readiness score.
Londoners have already fully embraced a broad range of public transport options, however intelligent traffic management could develop the city’s potential.
The Greater London Authority have released their ‘Smarter London Together’ plan to transform London. As sensor networks expand, real-time predictive analytics will use the collected data to anticipate problems with anything from air pollution to crowd control and crime incidents, allowing quick response and management. London will need new ideas and talent to transform its smart city vision into reality.
