Smart city concepts
November 2018, Access Control & Identity Management

In much the same way that all large-scale inventions change society, from the creation of fire to mobile phones, humans will adapt to a new normal and find space within a smart city to evolve, innovate and create – just as they always have done.

The smart city concept integrates information and communication technology (ICT), and various physical devices connected to the network (the Internet of things or IoT) to optimise the efficiency of city operations and services and connect to citizens. For all the advancements in technology and complicated algorithms of today, a smart city retains the goal of the traffic light: using technology to make things work better.

Our quality of life has significantly improved in the last century mainly as regards to the access to services. However, the heavy industrialisation and the increasing population in the urban areas has been a big challenge for architects and urban planners.

The potential of a city with a data-driven infrastructure is exciting but also requires an adjustment of expectations. Smart cities will not be the answer to all our problems, nor completely transform the way we live overnight. Rather they will be incremental transformations that will enhance our lives through a combination of small projects and wider infrastructure changes underpinned by data sharing.

Existing cities are finding innovative ways to use data and technology to improve their systems and new cities are being built from the ground up with ‘smart’ infrastructure to improve the lives of those living within them. The ambitions are grand, and the action is necessary.

Surveillance cameras and facial recognition can be used to monitor public and private spaces and to identify people and are increasingly being used to monitor public and private spaces throughout the world. Smart city and safe city have been the strategic core business for the future development of ZKTeco. ZKTeco uses its own property rights of hybrid biometric verification technology, RFID technology, security alarm solutions, in-depth learning and image identification technologies, this relies on multi-information integration.
