Over 50% of the world's population lives in cities. This trend is rather increasing over the next years, exponentially in developing countries.
Cities have not only taken advantage of technology available to make their citizen's life easier, they also enabled them to become part the concept.
Examples range from energy- efficient buildings to sensors that manage lightning for public places, waste disposal systems to pick-up public and household trash more efficiently, car and bike-sharing and locating empty parking spots. Cities, additionally taking more and more advantage of crowd-sourcing information by encouraging citizens to report incidents like overflowing trash-cans, graffiti, and traffic information.
Have you seen any of these changes and did they improve your life?
