Abstract

Taking advantage of ICT tools and techniques for city administration whether it is for urban planning activities or for transport solutions or many others, is not a new concept. However in order to a city to be classified as "smart", a synthesis of intelligence that transcends mere utilization is essential. As part of an ongoing research, this paper analysed the increasing use of ICT and sensing technologies in cities by examining this new way of city governing in a critical perspective. Existing projects and initiatives were investigated to find out to what extend and how these tools are being employed by cities. The advantages and the current shortcomings of real-time city also discussed in order to understand viability of using these tools.
