TechTalk #09 : HOW CAN SMART CITIES SOLVE URBAN PROBLEMS

in technology •  4 months ago

There is no agreed definition of smart cities because they are very specific to a city, problems that you have in Shanghai for example are different to those of Amsterdam. Although the categories are similar how we approach them, the extent of the issue and the solutions are going to be very specific.

One of the things that most cities are grappling with is congestion, and how do we get people out of their cars and how do we get good data on how transportation works in the city. When the people in the cars are looking for parking spaces they're literally going around blocks creating this congestion, but if they have the information about their parking spaces occupation we will reduce for sure this problem. The idea here is to collect data from sensors and make a database accessible by everyone to work.

But most of smart cities companies are thinking to put this database in a central points, so you can imagine if one of these points had been shutted down. Is the blockchain the solution of these issues? Let me know in the comments and have a good day.

Obviously it's not easy, but DApps can simplify the task.

no it's not an option it's like there is a single electricity point from where the whole city is taking electricity when it goes down the whole city down in my opinion and i don't know anyone has a different opinion about that bye the way whatever it is please share with us

Now you know someone who has a different opinion :) . I meant by points servers where we are going to store this database not electricity points.

I can't agree any less because truly Blockchain is the solution to issues like this

i agree with you

Great post ! Indeed the Blockchain technology is full of hopes because of the decentralized feature. This technology could be the solution, however, it's still immature so no one is aware of the result. Furthermore, blockchain potential is awesome, so definitely it could be the best way to solve the issue of centralized platform.
