Pennoni Perspective Volume 22 • Issue 4 • Winter 2018/19 - Page 5

According to the Smart Cities Council, a smart city uses information and communications technology (ICT) to enhance its livability, workability and sustainability. First, a smart city collects information about itself through sensors, other devices, and existing systems. Next, it communicates that data using wired or wireless networks. Third, it analyzes that data to understand what’s happening now and what’s likely to happen next. At Pennoni, we know that smart cities aren’t just “cities;” both the public and private sectors are turning to smart solutions to further growth through attracting businesses, residents, tourists, and talent. As smart technologies and smart solutions are becoming more prevalent in our everyday lives, we are assisting our clients to navigate through the multitude of options with our four pillars: transportation, facilities management, energy/utilities, and water/wastewater/solid waste. We are applying innovation to make today’s world smarter. PENNONI | 5
