The Americas is one of the most urbanized regions in the world. Cities across North and Latin America are home to nearly 81% of the region's population, a number likely to increase. Smart city initiatives can help to manage the complexities arising from urban life, helping city planners and administrations to improve the public service efficiency, reduce costs, and improve the quality of life.
Most smart city projects revolve around four priority areas: sustainable urban mobility, sustainable district and built environment, integrated infrastructure and processes, and enhanced public services. While most smart city projects comprise all of these elements, typically some are prioritized over others. All projects have as a common primary requirement the widespread existence of good quality ICT infrastructure and access to information, which sits at the core of any project.
Most smart city projects in the Americas are currently focusing on areas such as real time public transit information, parking management, car sharing, bike sharing, or road illumination. Over time, these developments are also opening the door to smart city initiatives in other areas, such as air quality or infrastructure monitoring. Existing smart city resources and infrastructure can be shared by adjacent projects generating economies of scale. Portland's Traffic Sensor Project (PTSP), for instance, includes the creation of a data lake, which will be later used to store data from other smart city initiatives beyond traffic management.
