What is a smart city?

Digital technology underpins almost every aspect of modern living across work, travel, leisure and health, and increasingly impacts on the economic strength, sustainability and quality of life of our communities.

Smart cities technology builds on this, using digital connectivity, data and sensors in innovative ways to address city challenges in four key areas: transport, environment, healthcare and smart living.

Smart Cambridge aims to make Greater Cambridge a ‘smart city’ by deploying the infrastructure needed to collect and analyse data that can be used to develop solutions to some of the city’s challenges.
