As cities grow larger and more populated, so too does the need for better infrastructure that provides a cleaner and more efficient system. The Internet of Things (IoT) provides cities with the solution by creating a smart city of interconnectivity between the infrastructure and devices. Smart cities are the wave of the future, providing a better quality of life and more efficient methods that overcome transportation, public safety, and environmental hurdles. IoT contributes to the development of smart cities by installing sensors that connect to the internet and using them to monitor and manage the different infrastructure throughout the city. PierCon Solutions is addressing and overcoming the engineering challenges of a smart city by working to implement smart transportation, smart grids, and smart management solutions.
