US Smart Cities-Awareness and Assessment

US Smart Cities―Awareness and Assessment

Cities in the United States and around the world have begun to look to smarter solutions to help better manage existing resources and assets, effectively deal with growing populations, help mitigate expenses related to aging infrastructure, and provide a better quality of life and standard of living for city residents, businesses, employees, and visitors. However, how well are these efforts being recognized by the public? This study provides context and understanding of a smart city, without biasing the respondents toward any particular metric or definition, and gives both cities and solution providers insights into how the US population views the smart city concept
