This has also resulted in spikes in congestion and pollution. Such stress on city resources has forced government institutions and municipalities to look at alternative means of managing cities. This has brought about a move toward smart solutions that are more sustainable, green, and resourceful. Smart cities are cities built on smart solutions and technology that will lead to the adoption of intelligent and seamless transportation and other sustainable plans.
The goal of a smart city is to solve major problems through modern management and greater interaction between citizens and institutions to achieve a better quality of life.

The study looks to identify the unique intelligent transport strategies adopted by major smart cities from a global perspective. It focuses on various developments in this segment, including their current and future outlook. It also presents a general overview of the disruptive technologies, data and digital strategies and various smart city initiatives.
