Book Description

Smart Cities and Homes: Key Enabling Technologies explores the fundamental principles and concepts of the key enabling technologies for smart cities and homes, disseminating the latest research and development efforts in the field utilizing numerous case studies and examples throughout.

Smart cities use digital technologies embedded across all its functions to enhance the wellbeing of its citizens. Cities that utilize these technologies report enhancements in power efficiency, water use, traffic congestion, environment protection, pollution reduction, senior citizens care, public safety and security, literacy rate, and more.

Smart Cities and Homes: Key Enabling Technologies brings together the most important breakthroughs and recent advances in a coherent fashion, highlighting the interconnections between the works in different areas of computing. The book explores new and emerging computer networking systems and other computing technologies such as wireless sensor networks, vehicle ad hoc networks, smart girds, cloud computing and data analytics and their roles in creating environmentally friendly, secure, and prosperous cities and homes.

Intended for researchers and practitioners, Smart Cities and Homes: Key Enabling Technologies discusses the pervasive and cooperative computing technologies that will perform a central role for handling the challenges of urbanization and demographic change.



  • Case studies and contributions from prominent researchers and practitioners from around the globe
  • Explores the latest methodologies, theories, tools, applications, trends, challenges, and strategies needed to build a smart cities and home from the bottom up
  • Pedagogy such as PowerPoint slides, key terms, and a comprehensive bibliography
